What Kanyadaan Really Means To a Father.
Ronit was feeling sad to leave his daughter in hostel, but he had faith in his & Supriya’s parenting & his daughter that she would always make her parents feel proud of herself.
With the passage of time Pankhudi passed graduation with 70% grades & took admission in post graduation & did M.Sc in child care. While she was pursuing her PG, many proposals came to Ronit regarding her marriage.
Ronit replied, I will not take any decision before my daughter would become self dependent. First is her career, her ambition & second is her marriage.
Time passed & Pankhudi completed her Post graduation. After completing her post graduation she got job offers from Hospitals & Child care organizations. She went on a break of few days to her home.
Ronit & Supriya were so happy to see Pankhudi.
Pankhudi discussed with Ronit & Supriya , ” Mom & Dad I recieved job offers from many organizations. Suggest me what to do?”
Ronit replied, “Pankhudi its your career, you have to decide by your own what is good for you & which will give better prospects to your career in future.”

One day Pankhudi was sitting in a lawn & was having tea with Ronit & Supriya.
Ronit ask Pankhudi ,” Pankhudi now tell me one thing… what you have decided regarding your personal life, would you like us to search for a partner or you like someone with whom you would like to get settle in your personal life now.?”
Pankhudi replied,” Dad I am scared of leaving you & Mumma & don’t want to leave my home & go to another place. Is it compulsory to get marry ….?”
Ronit replied,” I would like to say one thing , we are always with you & you will always live in our heart no matter wherever you will be & secondly the place you will go is not a strange place.. the guy you will marry will be your husband who will love you & take care of you & the place you will go will be your own house which you have to build the new relations & make strong bond with your inlaws & family members..”
Pankhudi felt silent for a while & just thought over whatever Ronit said…
She replied, “Dad your views cleared my all the doubts. I am ready to settle in my personal life.”
Ronit felt happy & said Supriya ” its we parents only who make learn & understand difficult things so easy to our kids.. ”

Humaari beti itni badi ho gayi.. aisa lagta hai jaise kal hi ki to baat hai.. I remember the first day when I held her cute little hands in my hands..
His eyes were filled with tears.
Supriya hugged Ronit & hold his hands in her hands ,” Ronit don’t be so weak, you are your princess’ hero & if her hero will cry then it would be difficult for our princess to leave this home..
We have to be strong, said Supiya. Ronit replied, “Yes my Supriya we have to be strong for our daughter..” He & Supriya welcomed the baarat & greeted them. Jaymala ceremony took place.
Time came for the most important event that comes once in life of a girl’s parents. .. ” kanyadaan”
Kanyadaan ceremony started , Ronit & Supriya handed over Pankhudi’s hands in the hands of Sanchit.
Ronit says, ” Pankhudi I will also do some promises with you as my daughter.
As you will get married today, go to another place, but this place where you took birth, where you started the journey of your life, your home your “Maayka” will never be strange for you..
You will always live in our heart. No distance no time boundations can ever separate us.
Whenever you will have any problem , we are there to support you, to be your side .
Never feel this that now you have got married, life will change, you can’t expect anything from us. Remember that you are & will always be your papa’s princess….
It was “Kanyadaan” in its real sense.
Really Ronit led an inspiration for all the parents & in laws as well.
