Father, where are you?
- 16 Dec 2017
"In my 35 years of working in a cricket ground, I have seen many cricketers grow before my very eyes. I had the pleasure of watching Indian players like VVS Laxman, Mohammad Azharuddin etc in their initial days of their career and then moving on to big things. As a matter of fact, it’s a pleasure to see any young boy play here and the sight gets even better when his father accompanies them.
Mention of the father always makes me very sad, to the point of crying. My father left me when I was a kid due to our financial difficulties. When I realized he was never coming back I tried to search for him on my own, but nothing came out of it. My mother, wife and my college going girl, we are a loving family...but the fact that my father is not with us still hurts me....and not a day goes by without me thinking of him."
