We start with Milind Madan who posted this picture of him with his Dad.

Raj Kumar e-mailed us this photograph along with the following note:

"The photograph (fifty years old) is of my family which was taken when I was six years old.

Father (Achan), mother (Amma), two sisters and me. My father passed away when I was 10 years old.

He was a soldier with Indian Army.

My mother also passed away 14 years ago.

The memories of my father are still fresh in my mind. He used to explain to us the importance of values in life.

He explained us the importance of being sincere and straight forward while dealing with others.

He taught us the importance of being down to earth.

He never threatened us when we committed any mischief but explained us the implications of the same.

After he passed away, we had to go through lot of hardship.

My mother was a strong lady and we had the blessings of my father and God Almighty -- we came out well.

I still follow the principles he taught me when I was a young boy.

I share the same principles with my daughter and always remind her the importance of these principles.

Thank you father and also my beloved mother for your love and teachings about the basics of life which helped me a lot during all these years.

We know you will always bless us and guide us to come out of difficult situations.

Thank you father and mother for guiding me to become what I am today."

Mainak Banerjee also e-mailed a photograph of her father and wrote this:

"You are the one who taught me that winning in competitions is not important, participation is.

A person who attends to all my aspirations.

This picture must be over 25 years old I guess.

It shows my Dad posing for the photograph in a sleepy mode while the younger me watches him with joy!

My mom was the photographer!

A good memory to cherish this Father's Day!!!"
