#FathersDay: Fathers Spend Sleepless Nights For their kids
Probably, I have heard for the first time, a man saying "Father Should Have Leave Like - Maternity Leave- to take care of the newly born”. And it was from Santosh...my husband. I remember, sometime my son used to cry in the mid- night, making us confused and bewildered, with no clue, what he wanted exactly. I guess…every parent have those moments. Santosh used have a very erratic and abhorrent kind of shift duty those days. Sometime he used to back home after working more than 15 hours at a stretch. But in spite of that “He” used carry the baby for hours, sometime whole night staying awake - asking me to sleep peacefully. In fact, whenever he used to be at home, he used to spare a considerable time in taking care of my son…from bathing him to potty clean him….everything, he used to do. He is the BEST FATHER IN THE WORLD!
That’s why I always strongly disagree if someone says; fathers don't spend "sleepless nights" for their children. It’s an utter misconception. They do, may be at work or at home....raat raat bhar woh bhi jagte hain, Like stars at night, they stay awake, while we sleep and we don’t see them when we are awake in the daytime.
Most of the time, I have seen fathers are often misunderstood as “heartless beings” as unlike mothers they don’t wear emotional sleeves. But their sentiments are often invisible, like stars at night. If Mother endow with an emotional anchorage for a child, a father gives survival kit to wade through the waves of harsh realities and remain unfazed by them, and the bag of strength to think for the unthinkable, dare for the impossible!!
Love Your Dad; Love Him For Being Your Father!!Happy Father’s Day!!

Well…let Me tell you, I am not a good cook at all but I try to explore cooking. For me even though cooking is an everyday affair, I don’t really do it with passion unless the dishes are close to me. In short, when I “have to” any way, I use my mind while if it is “I want” to cook, I put my hearts into it.
Being an Odia, I love Odia foods and “I Love” to cook them mainly for two reasons. They make me happily nostalgic and the other one is they are simple to make, less oily and spicy yet wildly tasty.Here is one…a very simple Odia dish.
Alubhaja and Paratha!
Potatoes cut into thin but straight pieces simply cooked with cumin seeds, oil, chopped onions, turmeric, salt and a pinch of red chilli powder. Served along with Parathas or Rotis…
A typical and classical odia breakfast!!
Evergreen....in its taste and appeal.I bet...it’s always irresistible for any Odia!
Always in love with it...
Try it guys. Make sure you are asking for it, if you are visiting a Odia friend's house. It takes just few minutes to be prepared as the ingredients are always available at homes.
