I can’t fully articulate my emotions, but I love you immensely… I’ve witnessed your struggles during my childhood, but you ensured that your children didn’t… You consistently empowered me to follow my aspirations and allowed me to become who I wanted to be… I am where I am thanks to your unwavering support and strength…”
“I remember when I embarked on my journey in Mumbai, and there were times when I couldn’t pay my rent. You ensured it happened regardless of the circumstances in your life because you believed in my dreams… I am and will forever be grateful and blessed to have you, paa… I witnessed your health challenges, yet the incredible determination you displayed during that period was extraordinary, and your smiling face during that ordeal kept all of us going. I am profoundly proud to be your daughter… I love you paa, eternally and evermore. Happy Father’s Day paa,” her caption concluded.
