Parents not only give us the gift of life by bringing us into this world, but continue to care for and nurture us until we get old enough to fend for ourselves. In some lucky instances, like most desi households, children are lucky enough to be able to spend even their adulthood in the company of their parents. Our parents can go above and beyond to ensure our happiness, that all our needs and wants are satiated, that we get whatever we dream of, and when our hearts break, theirs break twice as hard. It is this dedication and commitment of parents towards their children’s well being that deserves to be celebrated, not on just one day but every day of the year. After all, we give our parents the hardest time, take them for granted, fail to take care of them the way they take care of us, but they continue loving us unconditionally, and such love, dedication and kindness deserves to be celebrated.
Parents’ Day is observed on different days in different parts of the world, in South Korea it is celebrated on May 8 and in the United States on the fourth Sunday of July (which falls on July 26 this year). The Parents Day celebrations in the United States day were founded in 1994 under the then President Bill Clinton. The United Nations has also proclaimed June 1, which is celebrated as Global Day of Parents, as the day to celebrate parents and mark their commitment to their children. The international agency proclaimed that this day is “to appreciate all parents in all parts of the world for their selfless commitment to children and their lifelong sacrifice towards nurturing this relationship”.
