Every father take care of their children and help in every way to get successful one day. From the day he become father he give us everything we need not to get back one day but still its our duty to care for him after an age when he gets lack of energy to take care of us.
Its our duty to stop him from working and give respect and fulfill every wishes of him which he cannot fill in his days of work. Its our duty to give him rest and give him feel proud that the dreams he saw for me are all successful and he now he is completely free. Father’s are also humans they also deserve to get what they had given to us.
