We live in a patriarchal world. With relatively few exceptions, our fathers, our men, determine the direction and evolution of our societies. This Father’s Day—with persistent inequality, a permanent state of violence and war, climate mayhem, and escalating destruction of human habitats—I ask: Father, where are you?

Father, where are you when a son goes on a shooting rampage, killing other human beings because he believes he has the right to do so?

Father, where are you when the leaders of our governments send our sons and daughters to fight in illegitimate wars of domination?

    In my opinion the Sanskrit text Satyam bruyat priyam bruyat, Na bruyat satyamapriyam means that one should speak the truth in gentle language. One had better not speak it if one cannot do so in a gentle way, meaning thereby that there is no truth in a man who cannot control his tongue. Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) ]

    HAPPY FATHERS DAY TO ALL

    Fathers are firstly boys who grew up to be men Then mostly they got married to other women Then there’re other males one can choose Like uncles and dads, cousins and nephews Like soldiers or firefighters But really they are all fathers Others gave them many demands Then they called them husbands Some are really superbly great like god sents Hard working tax payers and even Presidents Man! some can smell like the carrion crows Especially when the live like couch potatoes From their faces some emit a glow Some smile away just for a show But make no mistake about it all They are all fathers on the call We have some famous as great actors Who have been real role model fathers Some are just plain dead beat until the 9th day Who hang their hats then they scamper away This gives other kind honest dads a bad name In a feuding family it can never be the same Good fathers have an aura of pure love As good as the loving one from above Otherwise you take a deep sigh And wonder blimey! why why? It shows chiefly with a compatible wife And this is the real secret for lasting life

    Thanks
