He gives wings to your dreams.
He supports you when no one else would.
He gives away his prime so that you can comfortably reach your prime.
He makes you strong, and he builds your character.
The online celebration looks to engage the current generation of Father and Children and give them a platform to create and share memories. As part of the celebration, titled as #PapaHaiTohPossibleHai (Dad makes it possible) there is a Photography Competition, Parenting Webinar and an Online Photography Exhibition. Alongside a lot of social media activity will happen to encourage netizens to share their love-filled moments and memories in the form of a poem, quote, pictures or in any other creative way, that captures the essence of the theme #PapaHaiTohPossibleHai.
The Father-Child bond is warm and unique. Over the many centuries, with changing socio-economic landscapes, this relation has also gone through a transformation. While the underlying emotion of love, care and support are constant, at the outer level, the dynamic is continuously evolving. Just a couple of decades back, the number of women working in offices was quite low in our society, this scenario has now changed and with it changed the Father’s identity of being the ‘breadwinner’ and ‘provider’. At the turn of the millennium urban societies saw the emergence of a demographic called the ‘metrosexual man’. The term describes a man who is in touch with his feminine side and expresses interest in activities that we traditionally link with the other gender. With the advent of New media, we saw a lot of visuals of men engaging and sharing their cooking exploits, child-care responsibilities and such other chores that were traditionally not associated with men and Fatherhood. All these changes have a massive bearing on the next generation and on the idea of being a ‘father’. The various initiatives that are part of the celebration will explore this change and help the larger audience observe and understand this relationship in its current context.
So what all is happening?
