A son is a son till he takes him a wife, a daughter is a daughter all of her life. ~ Irish Proverb

The other day, my little daughter was away at her friend’s place.

These days during holidays or, weekends she likes going to this friend’s house and spending the entire day there. And at some other days, her friend spends the entire day at our house.

It’s fun to watch the two of them. They enjoy each other’s company so much that they don’t even care about what is happening around them.

They seem to be the happiest when they are with each other. It looks like they are in a world of their own.

A lot of times, me and Dilip – we look at each other and think about how happy they are in each other’s company.

..and then we think about how times are changing.

As our little daughter is growing, her world seems to be changing. Changing from around us, her parents, to her friends.

Yeah, the other day when she was away at her friends place, this was exactly what we were discussing. How years are flying past and how out little daughter is growing..

And one day she will find a life partner for her and then our place in her life will be a distant 2nd or, even the 3rd.

Sattu Parantha

That’s when Dilip showed me this video. It was of a father singing a song for his daughter who is both deaf and dump. Apparently, he took and an entire year to learn how to sing the song in sign language and then sang it to her on her birthday.

The song is “I loved her first” by Heartland.

The lyrics of the song itself is so touching. And the way, the father sings it to his daughter makes you even more emotional.

When we had watched the entire video, the two of us looked at each other and found that both of our eyes were filled with tears.


And then Dilip said that Irish proverb and touched my hand. And I said, “Yes, that’s true. A daughter is a daughter all of her life”.

My Mother makes Sattu ka Paratha without onion so you can try that version of it too. And if you are adding onion to it then make sure you chop it really fine, else the paratha’s might tear while rolling.
