Parents are the most important part of any child’s life and definitely, they are the strongest pillars who make us what we are today. The relationship with mother and father is totally different and one can’t express it. In a Facebook post, world renowned Chef Vikas Khanna and also a judge of MasterChef India has expressed his love for his father that will leave you in tears.
Vikas Khanna, who lost his father on January 31, 2015, shares something about his relationship with his father and that how his father’s unfilled wish has left a hole in his heart.
Read his Facebook post below:
On Jan 31, 2015, as a morning ritual I called home and to speak to my Mom and Dad. Dad was super excited for 2 reasons, Serena Williams was playing Finals for Australian Open and Mercedes had signed me up for their association. He told me that it was his dream to drive his son’s Merc. I laughingly said that why didn’t you tell me before, he joked and said “you had never asked.” We laughed as usual and disconnected.
At noon on the same day, he passed away. No child can ever be ready for this loss; it leaves a hole in your heart. Makes you feel empty, betrayed by Gods and unprotected to the World.
I still wonder about the line he said “you had never asked.”
So many times since that unfortunate day, I wish I could have done more for him, made him proud, and fulfill all his wishes.
Life lesson – Don’t wait for a single more moment. Our parents might never ask for anything and just give all their lives for us.
Surprise them, spoil them, hug them, ask them about their dreams, and loveeee them. Because one day you might be able to buy a fleet of cars, but you cant buy time.
Generally, we hesitate to express our feelings and chef Vikas Khanna’s words make us realize to do what you want as life doesn’t give time to everyone.
