4 th September is my Dad’s Birthday and every year I make it a point to post a cake to wish him . He is not with us anymore , and it has been a while since he left . Mom made up for his absence , but unfortunately the nature has its way and we have to follow . We lost her too last year .
Both my parents had their birthdays in September , even their wedding anniversary in September . There was always a lot to celebrate , but again in those days the celebrations were very simple . After dad left normally the family went out for dinners .
Dad , unlike mom was a foodie and loved entertaining . We perpetually had dinners . Dad would get the vegetables with the house boy and he would remove the best crockery and cutlery and made sure it was all washed and cleaned , counted and placed back . The menus would always feature some kind of paneer and pakoras or Tikkis . It’s been so long that my memory fails now .
Mom had given up cooking after dad fell sick and when ever I asked her any recipes she would coolly say – I don’t remember ! I wish I had documented it all while they were there . It’s a treasure to go back and refresh your fond memories .
I am a strong believer of living in present , but we must always cherish the fond memories of our parents . This is my small way of paying my parents a small ode . Love you dad ! Love you mom !
