On the third Sunday June every year,
the world celebrates a day dedicated to
the creator of the child- the father. The
concept of Father's Day was conceived
by Sonora Smart Dood of USA who wanted
a celebration that honour fathers like
her own father who had raised six children
single-handedly after the death of his wife.
The first father's day was celebrated
on June 13, 1910 in Washington. It was made
a permanent National Holiday in the year
1972 in USA.
The concept of fatherhood has gone
through a sea change in the fast 50 years.
Yesterears fathers were stricter and
maintained a strict distance between
them and their children. They never
showed their affection for their sons
and daughters in public. The children
too could not approach their father
easily instead asked their mothers for
their any demand or need in front of
But today's is a complete changed person
at lest in the cities and metros
Fatherhood is now more about bonding
their children in affable manner. Fathers
now tries to be more close and friendly
with their children. They take keen
interest in children's life and problems
and behave like friends with them. The
children today are as close to father
as that with mother.
