Parenting is the hardest thing you'll ever do, but here are a few things that can make it a tad easier. All tried and tested on a sample size of one - Me.
I offered my services to clean up my father's garage. Not that he had asked me. In fact, quite the contrary - he wanted me nowhere near it. However, I was convinced that he would appreciate my supremely altruistic act in hindsight. What better time, I said to him, than now when the merits of 'Swachh Bharat' were being rubbed in our noses. It was time, I declared, wielding a broom in one hand and a duster in the other, to start the drive in our own homes.
For the past four years, I have been away from home on work-related assignments and felt extremely guilty that I had missed some of the most beautiful years of my son's childhood. Now, I had another chance to not only watch my daughter grow up but also make up to my son and my wife for all those years that I was absent.
