  1. Most men don’t shop often but when they do, they don’t exactly get what they want. It might not be false for younger men since there are ample styles and options to choose from, but men over 30 and 40 years of age do struggle to find decent casual clothes in the bundle of uber-cool, street style fashion meant for the younger generation these days. © iStock Also, a lot is discussed on a daily basis about how brands don’t make clothes in all sizes for women and what a struggle it is to find an XXL or 3XL in most labels. However, the discussion for men’s apparel doesn’t get any spotlight. It’s the same for men and someone brought it to light with a hilarious tweet. © iStock The former editor of a leading business newspaper, R Srinivasan put up a post on Twitter addressing the issue. He said that there are no decent jeans available for an average Indian male and all he can ever find is skinny fit, low rise or ripped pair of jeans. Most desi dads would agree to this. © iStock He tweeted, “It's tough living in a country where two thirds of the population is under 30. I can't now get a non-skinny fit, non-low rise, non-pre-faded/torn pair of jeans for love or money! And most stores don't stock beyond a 36 waist. I mean has anybody seen the older Indian male?” It's tough living in a country where two thirds of the population is under 30. I can't now get a non-skinny fit, non-low rise, non-pre-faded/torn pair of jeans for love or money! And most stores don't stock beyond a 36 waist. I mean has anybody seen the older Indian male? — R Srinivasan (@srinivasanravi) March 17, 2022 Well, we totally agree. He speaks for all average Indian men when he says there’s limited waist size in menswear apparel in most stores while obviously, people come in all shapes and sizes. The response to his tweet is proof that desis relate to it. © iStock While some said they struggle with the same thing, others suggested places they shop from, hacks and tips that they’ve come up with after going through the same. Here is what they said: welcome to the club! — Abhinandan Singh (@abhinandan_ks) March 17, 2022Exactly... I think no one mfr these type of jeans anymore..for us-type poor souls. Ultimately i hv to go to one size up to get a comfortable fit and manage the waist by one step down belt — Kunal Chattopadhyay (@Hicoonal) March 17, 2022The only option left for you now is tailor made then — Ronendra Singh Sapam (@ronendrasingh) March 17, 2022That’s bn the case for at least a decade! Turn to amazon and discover elastic at the waist — nandita sengupta ‎نندیتا ‎ ‎سینگپتا (@nandibull) March 17, 2022Lee's Rodeo fit is non-skinny — Noel Edwards (@noeledwards79) March 17, 2022Same story with my dad. — aditi (@SilverMagicChip) March 17, 2022 Although it was funny, where’s the lie? It does happen to men and this needs to be discussed more. Not only regarding more sizes but also how there should be more options of regular clothes that cater to men of all ages. © iStock Indian menswear brands and designers, are you listening?

  2. Often it happens that whenever a filmmaker casts a star kid in their film, they try to cash in on their legendary father’s name. Sometimes, they use a similar tune, for example, Jackie Shroff’s Hero theme was used in Tiger Shroff’s Heropanti, or feature a reference to their father’s iconic work, like Aamir Khan referring to Sholay and joking it was made by Salman’s father in Andaz Apna Apna. However, there are also a few times when filmmakers used the same title for a star kid that once featured their father. Here are 9 instances when star kids and their fathers starred in two different films with the same title: 1. Dostana © Dharma Productions In 1980, Amitabh Bachchan starred alongside Shatrughan Sinha in producer Yash Johar’s Dostana directed by Raj Khosla. 28 years later, in 2008 Amitabh Bachchan’s son Abhishek Bachchan did a film with the same title produced by Yash Johar’s son Karan Johar. The movie was helmed by Tarun Mansukhani. © Dharma Productions Apart from the title, the plot of the two films was as different as chalk and cheese. While Dostana (1980) was a masala actioner, the 2008 film was a romantic comedy. 2. Elaan © FC Mehra In 1971, Vinod Khanna starred in Elaan alongside Vinod Mehra. The movie was helmed by K Ramanlal. In 2005, Vinod’s elder son Rahul Khanna starred in a film with the same title helmed by Vikram Bhatt. © Venus The 2005 film was a Sholay rip-off also starring John Abraham, Arjun Rampal, Ameesha Patel, Lara Dutta and Mithun Chakraborty. 3. Hungama © Chainsons Films In 1971, Vinod Khanna also starred in a film titled Hungama directed by SM Abbas. In 2003, his younger son Akshaye Khanna also did a film titled Hungama directed by Priyadarshan. © Venus Both the films belonged to the comedy genre with the 2003 film attaining a cult following. 4. Aap Ki Khatir © Indu Pictures In 1977, Vinod Khanna starred in a film titled Aap Ki Khatir directed by Sudhendhu Roy. In 2006, Akshaye Khanna starred in a film of the same name alongside Priyanka Chopra and Suniel Shetty. © Venus The 2006 film was directed by Dharmesh Darshan. 5. Hulchul © Amit Arts Another Akshaye Khanna film that took its title from a previous Vinod Khanna movie. In 1995, Vinod Khanna featured alongside Ajay Devgn in Hulchul directed by Anees Bazmee. 9 years later, Akshaye Khanna featured in Priyadarshan's cult hit Hulchul. © Venus The movie also starred Kareena Kapoor, Arshad Warsi, Suniel Shetty and Jackie Shroff among others. 6. Love Aaj Kal © Illuminati Films In 2009, Saif Ali Khan starred alongside Deepika Padukone in Imtiaz Ali’s Love Aaj Kal. The romantic comedy was one of the biggest hits of the year. © Maddock Films 11 years later, Imtiaz Ali made another Love Aaj Kal, this time starring Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara Ali Khan alongside Kartik Aaryan and Randeep Hooda. However, the new Love Aaj Kal failed to make a mark at the box office. 7. Dillagi © Bikramjeet Films In 1978, Dharmendra starred in a film titled Dillagi alongside Hema Malini. The romantic comedy was directed by Basu Chatterjee. © Vijayta Films In 1999, Dharmendra’s elder son, Sunny Deol made his directorial debut with a film of the same name. He also starred in it alongside his younger brother Bobby Deol. Unfortunately, the film failed at the box office. 8. Teesri Aankh © Mukherjee Film Syndicate Pvt Ltd In 1982, Subodh Mukherjee directed a film titled Teesri Aankh starring Dharmendra and Shatrughan Sinha. In 2006, Dharmendra’s elder brother Sunny Deol starred in a thriller titled Teesri Aankh: The Hidden Camera. © Baweja Movies Pvt Ltd Directed by Harry Baweja, the film was a box office disaster. 9. Insaan © Mukesh Movies Pvt Ltd In 1982, Jeetendra starred alongside Vinod Khanna in a film titled Insaan. The film was directed by Narendra Bedi. 23 years later, in 2005 Jeetendra’s son Tusshar Kapoor featured in a film with the same title. © DMS Films The movie also starred Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar in the lead roles. Directed by K Subash, Insaan was a delayed-release and flopped at the box office. View the full article
  3. A father-son relationship is quite unique in its ways. While both parties might not necessarily express their love for each other, their bond is unbreakable and wholesome without any emotions involved. And, there are some things that a man can learn only from his dad. © The Timeliners Not just the basic life skills and the manliest things like changing a tyre or how to shave or the best investment options to put your money in, fathers pass down some pearls of wisdom to their sons that they learned from years of experience or probably from their dads. © Dharma Productions Someone on Reddit put up a post asking, “Men who have great fathers, what valuable lessons did your dad teach you?” And men listed down the most valuable and insightful lessons they learned from their dads and thanked them for it. Here are some of the best responses from the thread. . © Dharma Productions 1. Taught me to always tell those you love that you love them. Was never too manly to hug me, tell me he loved me, and that he was proud of me. I’m passing on the same thing to my daughter. 2. The importance of manning up and apologizing when you're wrong, and that changing is absolutely possible if you're willing to step up and address the problem. 3. He taught me to set aside a portion of my income in tax-advantaged retirement accounts. And make sure you invest your money in well-diversified funds of stocks (and a small amount of bonds). I’ve followed his advice, and in my early thirties I already have enough money set aside to cover about half my household’s monthly expenses in retirement. Thanks, Dad! 4. Respect everyone until they give you reason to do otherwise, and to also never hide your feelings. That factored into me always wanting to help and support others regardless of anything. 5. He taught me to be kind, respectful and forgiving. If there are ever any issues all I do is ask myself 'what would my dad do' and it's always right. The most amazing thing about this thread is that these weren’t just the manliest things like managing finances and hunting but how to be polite, the importance of punctuality and communications that often goes unappreciated. We need to thank our dad more, and not just on a Reddit thread. View the full article

  5. From a child’s early years and through the growing period, fathers play an important role in the way they turn out. One of the most precious gifts a father can give to their child is a wonderful and happy childhood. Ankit Jindal is one such dad who is determined to raise his son with compassion, empathy and love. As a child, he was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa; a disorder that causes progressive vision loss. However, through resilience and compassion, Ankit forged his name as a successful professional as well as a rockstar father. Ankit recently shared his story on ‘popsinapod’, a weekly parenting podcast hosted by Nadir and Peter, two first time dads from Mumbai. View this post on Instagram Here are 3 reasons why he is an inspiration for dads around the world: 1. He Never Let Societal Pressure On Being A Dad Get To Him © Vinod Chopra Film “Having those small engagements with your child, being that companion for them for bedtime stories... the whole conversation, just to listen to them... It is very liberating, it kind of gives you direction in life. It offers a lot more stability also." Ankit discusses his son with utmost love and compassion, a sincerity that shines through with his words. He talks about not wanting to build his son’s life around his father’s struggles, preferring to focus and nurture the child’s innate talents instead. He teaches his child to not just be sensitive, but also compassionate to the needs of those around him. Ensuring his child understands his father’s condition as well as how it impacts their life. 3. Having A 'Friend-Like' Relationship With His Son Instead Of Being A Typical Dad View the full article
  6. If most of your childhood has been spent saying ‘abba nahi manenge’ to everything your friends suggested, you know you’ve been raised by a strict dad. You had to prep, make mental notes of how you are going to ask for that one permission, get your mom and siblings (and neighbours and relatives) to support you and when you finally asked, you still got denied. © Vinod Chopra Films Rings a bell? If it happened too many times when you were growing up, you will relate to these onscreen dads who are just a replica of every super strict desi dad. They play by their rules and you have got to too, if you want to stay under his roof, young man! © Aamir Khan Productions Here are 5 Bollywood dads that will remind you of your strict desi dad. 1. Gurtej Singh Kahlon from Patiala HouseApart from the strict house rules and the desi dad aura, this NRI dad aka bauji had his terror in his house. He loved his nation more than his children and didn’t let his children pick their own career or life partners. And, everyone had to oblige. © Hari Om Entertainment 2. Nandkishore Awasthi from Taare Zameen ParIf this dad doesn't remind you of your math homework with your father yelling at you for not getting a simple sum right, are you even a child of a strict parent? He is the kind of dad who would compare his son with Sharma ji ka ladka and won’t take anything less than Rank 1 in the class. © Aamir Khan Productions 3. Mr Qureshi from 3 IdiotsFarhan’s dad was named Hitler Qureshi for a reason. He was the career obsessed dad who had high expectations for his kid and hated words like “passion, creativity and wildlife photography.” He meant well for his son, though and later gave in to his request and let him pursue his dreams. © Vinod Chopra Films 4. Mahavir Singh Phogat from Dangal Based on a real desi dad who was super strict and diligent, this hanikarak bapu was hellbent on making his girls Geeta and Babita wrestling champions. The kids didn’t have a say in it and had to wake up at 5 am to get trained by their dad. © Aamir Khan Productions 5. Narayan Shankar from MohabbateinOkay, he was a bit too harsh but if you also had to lie about talking to a friend, when in fact you were talking to a girl, you have been raised by a Narayan Shankar. He has always busted you at parties, gave you disappointed looks and expects you to marry the girl he chooses for you, because “parampara pratishtha anushasan.” © Yash Raj Films Was your father more of a Hitler dad or hanikarak bapu?

  7. Parenting is not an easy job especially if you are fairly new to it. If you have a daughter, you can still manage but as legends say, raising boys is a whole different level of this parenting game if you are noob at it. For young dads reading this, you’d know what I am talking about. © Instagram A dad raising a son can never have enough advice. And, there are not enough books or tutorials for dads bringing up other little men, either. Probably this is why someone took to Reddit and asked men what tips they would give other men who are fathers to little boys. And, men on Reddit obliged. © Instagram Maybe these are men who were brought up well or some who saw discrepancies while growing up which turned out to be a learning for them on how not to deal with a boy when he is young, but men advised other young dads on dos and don’ts of parenting and raising a son the right way. © Instagram If you are a clueless dad or find it difficult to tackle the mini version of you running in the house right now, here are 10 pro parenting tips from men on how to raise sons. 1. There might be a time when your son takes interest in learning to fix or make things. I wish my dad would’ve taught me how to use power/tools and machinery instead of automatically outsourcing to a service. 2. The internet in general just isn't safe for kids, im not talking about online gaming, I'm talking about social media. It's making kids depressed and are a groomers paradise. © Instagram 3. Keep them doing heavy physical labor as often as possible, and on the internet as little as possible. Social media creates anxiety and depression, hard work builds confidence and contentment. A man that can create something with his hands is a man who knows how to be happy. 4. Teach them personal responsibility and accountability of one's actions. My parents never learned that lesson themselves and I work long and hard to practice it. © Instagram 5. Don’t always force your sons to always play sports or do physical things if they don’t want to because they might not want to and will just hate it and not want to have anything to do with it. 6. Treat them with the same love and nurture that you would your daughters, and don’t demonize them because they are male. They are just as important as your daughters. © Instagram 7. Let them win the argument if they have reasonable logic and supporting evidence. It teaches them to not cry an complain but think and speak intelligently. 8. If your kid wants to wear dresses let him, teach him to accept his emotions, to understand other people (rather than to judge) and to seek non-violent solutions when possible. Also teach him to defend himself if required. © Instagram 9. Teach them to be empathetic, kind, and generous; that's what my parents did. But also teach them how to brave and their own self-advocate. 10. Teach them consent. © Instagram Good luck with raising your little man! View the full article
  8. Not all desi dads are cut from the same cloth but there are some qualities that every Indian father possesses. Taunting their kids when they wake up late or using sarcasm to insult them is a birthright of every dad and they take it very seriously. © Yash Raj Films Every dad is different in his own way. Whether your old man is expressive and emotional or strict and stern, he is a typical Indian dad if he does everything under the sun just to see a tiny smile on your face without showing a frown line on his. © Hatts Off Productions Some Bollywood movies and series have given us the most relatable and real dads ever who remind us of the sacrifice, love and taunts of our own fathers. These reel dads have made us scream “he is so much like my dad” at our TV screens too many times. © Dharma Production Here are 5 types of onscreen desi dads that remind us too much of our own papa, baba, abba and dad at our home. 1. Satendra Sharma: The Struggler dadSatendra Sharma from Aam Aadmi Family is the one who makes sure you are aware of all the facilities you are getting which he didn’t enjoy as a kid and that you know its importance. He will tell you stories of how he used to climb mountains and swim rivers (all the time) just to go to school. And, if you suggest buying something, even for him, get ready for one of those “beta, paise aise kharch karoge toh..” lectures. © The Timeliners 2. Yashwardhan Raichand: The Sanskari DadThis is the dad for whom ‘sanskar, sanskriti and parampara’ are of utmost priority. If you have a father like Mr Raichand, you are required to attend family functions and festivals without fail, even if that means you have to come home from London in a helicopter. Plus, you are pretty sure that you will have to marry a girl he chooses for you. Because, keh diya na? Bas. Keh diya! © Dharma Production 3. Indravadan Sarabhai: The Sarcastic dadHe is the daddy cool who is always looking for fun and sometimes trouble. He uses sarcasm like a true blue desi dad. Honestly, he is better than Chandler at roasting and killing someone with his sarcastic one-liners. But you can always count on him when you make a blunder because he always has your back, and also a dozen solutions in his mischievous mind. © Hatts Off Productions 4. Chaudhry Baldev Singh: The Strict DadOne death stare from him still gives you nightmares, TBT when you had to make scenarios in your head before taking permission from him as a kid. You have grown up with certain house rules that you still sometimes follow subconsciously, given the fear of your dad. However, you know that he is like a coconut with a hard shell but a warm heart underneath. © Yash Raj Films 5. Sanjay Thapar: The Supportive DadIf you have a dad like Bunny’s dad in YJHD, especially when your friends have a Chaudhry Baldev Singh at their house, you are one lucky son of a...uber supportive dad. He supports you in every decision and encourages you to live the life he never got to live. Plus, he will casually slip in some cash, without you even asking. © The Timeliners So which one of these are you blessed with? View the full article
  9. For most of us, fathers have been a guiding figure in our lives. The one who’s silently giving, expects nothing in return and will always unconditionally love you. He’s the one who always chooses your happiness above his own. With Father’s Day around the corner, we decided to celebrate this strength, the selflessness and the sheer coolness that our fathers display. We’ve all known different types of dads in our lives, be it our own or a friend’s. We know how uniquely different they all are and that’s exactly what we’re celebrating today. Here are six types of cool dads we’ve all known, loved and admired throughout our lives. __ECOMLOOKS__3024__ __ECOMLOOKS__3025__ __ECOMLOOKS__3026__ __ECOMLOOKS__3027__ __ECOMLOOKS__3028__ __ECOMLOOKS__3029__ Here’s To Celebrating Fathers!No matter which type of father you’re blessed with, you’ll always love them. So this Father’s Day, make sure to celebrate his unique personality, his selfless nature and his constant strength. Happy Father’s Day! Explore More View the full article
  10. One of the greatest joys in life for most men is becoming a father. Our society says there's always a 'right' age to settle down, get married and have a kid. But turns out, these celebrity dads defied the stereotype and became a parent in their 40s and 50s. This proves that there's never a suitable age to embrace fatherhood and these 8 celebrities are setting an example for that: 1. Saif Ali Khan © Instagram/Kareena Kapoor Khan Saif Ali Khan, besides being an impeccable actor, is also a great father to his four kids. Saif married Amirta Singh at a young age and they had Sara and Ibrahim. After marrying Kareena, he had his first kid with her at the age of 46 and his second child at the age of 50. 2. Prakash Raj © Instagram/Prakash Raj Prakash Raj is one of the most notable actors down South and is a well-known villain of Bollywood. The South Indian actor became a proud parent at the age of 50 and welcomed his first child with Pony Verma, Vedanth Raj in 2015. He wrote on Twitter "Hi .. Me and pony are happy share with you this moment of joy in our life.. We had a lovely baby boy.. Today .. Bless him. Cheers.” 3. Shah Rukh Khan © Instagram/SRK Shah Rukh Khan is father to Suhana and Aryan Khan and he embraced fatherhood once again with AbRam at the age of 47. AbRam was conceived through IVF surrogacy and he is now 8-years-old. SRK is often seen posting pictures with the little one. 4. Sanjay Dutt © Instagram/SanjayDutt_FC Sanjay Dutt had his first child in 1988 in his previous marriage. But, he was in his early 50s, when he had Shahraan and Iqra with Manyata Dutta. Manyata was in her 30s at the time and the couple was blessed with twins. 5. Nawazuddin Siddiqui © Instagram/Nawazuddin Siddiqui_FC Nawazuddin Siddiqui is known for his brilliant acting skills and he isn't just popular on the big screen but he became an OTT star as well, in no time. Even Nawazuddin embraced fatherhood late in his life. He had his son, Yaani Siddiqui on his 41st birthday. 6. Sohail Khan © Instagram/Sohail Khan Sohail and Seema Khan's marriage has been the talk of the town, ever since Seema participated in the Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives show Netflix. The couple had their first kid Nirvaan. The second child though was conceived via IVF surrogacy, after almost ten years. Yohan was born in 2011 and Sohail was 42 years old at the time. 7. Manoj Bajpayee © Instagram/Manoj Bajpayee Manoj Bajpayee has left no stone unturned in the acting arena. His show The Family Man is getting all the attention. On his real family front though, the actor had his daughter, Ava with Neha Bajpayee in 2011. Manoj was 42 years old at the time. 8. Ronit Roy © Instagram/Ronit Roy Ronit Roy started his journey as an Indian TV actor with Kasautii Zindagii Kay and later ventured into Bollywood. Speaking of fatherhood, Ronit became a proud parent at the age of 42, to his son Agasthya with his wife Neelam. View the full article
  11. We all love the idea of a perfect family but unless you’re part of a Suraj Barjatya movie, you know the idea is a bit far-fetched. With Father’s Day just around the corner, I got to thinking how not everyone has that “picture perfect” relationship with their dads. I know I don’t. Like many others, I’ve had my fair share of ups and downs with my father and I know there are quite a few of you who feel the same way. So here are five things that you’ll relate to if your relationship with your father is full of love as well as flaws. 1. Father’s Day Is Awkward When someone is trying to rebuild their relationship with their father, Father’s Day celebrations and posts may seem like salt in the wound. More so, when your relationship isn’t in the best space, celebrating Father’s Day with your dad can seem a little daunting to say the least. __ECOMPRODUCT__1759__ 2. Hugs, You Want Them, You Need Them! What is it about Indian dads and distance? Just try giving your dad a casual morning hug and you’ll feel the discomfort and awkwardness that I am talking about. Be it emotional or physical, intimacy with fathers is something I’ve only seen in Bollywood movies. P.S. If you do have that kind of intimacy in real life too, be grateful. © Giphy 3. Gifts Talk Louder Than WordsJust because most fathers have trouble putting their feelings into words, doesn’t mean they don’t love us. It simply means they make their love known through other ways, like thoughtful actions and gifts. __ECOMPRODUCT__1659__ This can be confusing because gifting is mostly seen as a materialistic custom but remember that different people have different ways of showing affection. Everyone has their own love language. 4. Emotional Conversations Need StrategisingAvoiding difficult emotions and conversations is a natural instinct for most of us. It comes from generations of conditioning and our fathers aren’t immune to that. Even though these things can be difficult, it’s important to have such conversations, be it with our fathers or anyone else. © Giphy 5. Physical Distance = Emotional Distance Lastly, if you’re someone who doesn’t live with your dad, it’s going to be even more difficult to develop a tight relationship with him. But hey, don’t give up, teach him how to facetime and stay in touch. __ECOMPRODUCT__1760__ Happy Father’s Day! In the end, we would just like to add that it’s okay to not have a great relationship with your father. Everyone has their fair share of struggles so this Father’s Day, celebrate your own unique, imperfect relationship with your dad! Explore More View the full article
  12. If you have landed on this article, chances are the holding image of the endearing father-son duo that Eugene and Dan Levy make has charmed your attention. While the Netflix show Schitt’s Creek had obvious glimpses of how well-groomed and stylish David Rose (played by Dan Levy) is, we think he probably got it from his dad — John Rose (played by his real life father Eugene Levy). Always clad in well-breasted suits and sporting a clean-shaven sharp look Mr. Rose made for the perfect gentleman. Well, most fathers have a different approach than mothers, much like Mr Rose, to raise their children, more like being a role model instead of hammering things in childrens’ heads. And when it comes to grooming and style, the case is no different. Whether it is tying the perfect full windsor tie knot or learning tricks to avoid razor bumps while shaving, fathers influence our grooming habits in more ways than they actually get credit for. Here are some old school grooming and style lessons that we must pick from our dads and thank them for getting us on the sharp path. The No-Bumps Shave EtiquetteLove how cute it is that dads who swear by only soap bars to take a shower, have an elaborate routine when it comes to shaving. Be it staying moist as you shave, or using the shaving cream twice (to go back over a section of your face), or always finishing with an aftershave, and then patting (not rub) your face dry, there is so much to pick from our dads’ shaving etiquette. This Father’s day, why not, show him some love and gift him something that would enhance his shaving experience even more. __ECOMPRODUCT__1659__ Grooming Fingernails RegularlyWhile our moms — who mostly had long nails — would often emphasize that fingernails are a breeding ground for bacteria, it would be our dads who would actually lead by example and every Sunday sit to clip and clean their nails. A grooming habit I, for one, can’t thank my dad enough for. __ECOMPRODUCT__271__ Importance Of A Signature Cologne Our fathers taught us the importance of having a signature fragrance and how people tend to remember us by the way we smell. Thank your dad this Father’s Day for passing down this useful grooming tip to you by gifting him a perfume that suits his strong personality. __ECOMPRODUCT__475__ Tying That Perfect Tie KnotWe owe it to our fathers to establish that a necktie is the hallmark of an elegant man. And our lesson on getting that knot right begins young, thanks to our superhero dads. His collection may not have been as varied but chances of him going wrong with getting that perfect windsor knot were as bleak as him missing to shave daily. Add a pop of colour to his necktie collection this Father’s Day. __ECOMPRODUCT__1744__ Polished Shoes = Discipline As a kid there was nothing more tedious than polishing your school shoes the night before school. We would cry, ignore, rub the shoes off our pants, but eventually watch our dads do it for us and learn. In retrospect, we feel, keeping the shoes shined has taught us to be more disciplined in life, a discipline that has an immediate end result and a feeling of accomplishment. Revel in that feeling of accomplishment with your father and sit cleaning all your leather and suede babies this Fathers Day. __ECOMPRODUCT__1430__ Always Focus On The FitOur fathers taught us that style is about timeless pieces and a good look is about a great fit. We would rarely see our dads leave the house for work without ironing his clothes and getting those slick creases right in his trousers. Be it their only few suits that they would often style with different ties and pocket squares, or their flannel shirt teamed with a pair of trousers, the fit has been a key element of their style. But now that he’s ageing, allow your dad to laze around in something comfortable and basic. __ECOMPRODUCT__1410__ Never Forget To Wear a BeltTalking about focussing on the fit, nothing quite makes the fit look sharp like a belt. Our fathers taught us the importance of wearing one to keep our pants on the waist to make sure we look fine and keep the unbecoming sight of a butt crack at bay. Our fathers deserve to be thanked for this handy lesson. How? Gift him a belt. __ECOMPRODUCT__1734__ Final ThoughtsIt is a rite of passage for a young man to learn useful life, style, and grooming lessons from his father. However, as we grow up we explore new lessons along the way but we must never forget the priceless ones that our dads have taught us. And as you revisit and archive these lessons in your memory, don’t forget to thank your dad for always being your life coach, a grooming guru and a santa that always comes bearing gifts.

  13. Few things are as precious as the relationship between a father and a child. From disciplining us to be astute members of society, to spoiling us rotten with their love, a father’s CV is multi-faceted. Zakir Khan’s ‘Papa Yaar’ is an eloquent ode to that often misunderstood loved one in our life. 1. “Life me aapko itni saari jagahon pe itne saalon se itna zyada disappoint kiya hai… Ki aapko mai koi salah doon aisi haisiyat hi nahi hai meri”Poignant and raw, Zakir’s words take us back to the fractious dynamic of many father-son relationships. As we grow up, and become more individualistic we realise that the intimacy and connect that we shared with them fades. Though that doesn’t have to be the case for everyone, with the maturity and richness of experience we now possess it is possible to empathise and understand the situations our Fathers had to go through in order to keep us safe. via GIPHY 2. “Ab jaise jaise bada hota jaa raha hoon toh samajh me aata hai office politics kya hoti hai, Samajh me aa raha hai ki paisa kamana kitna mushkil hota hai”The constant disappointments and stresses faced by an individual in society alters their nature in the long term. It left our fathers as people disconnected from emotions and us hesitant to approach them for the simplest conversations. via GIPHY 3. “Ab lag raha hai aapki voh thaki hui shakal ka asli matlab kya tha”As kids, we’re unable to grasp the impact of social influences on the quality of one’s life. What we saw as a wish not being fulfilled or our father’s inability to dote on us was often a sign of an individual trying to be their best despite the stresses they were experiencing. Back then no matter how hard our Fathers tried to make us understand the reasons behind their actions, we wouldn’t get it. It’s only after growing up and having gone through these same issues that we can even begin to understand the difficulties faced by our fathers in their pursuit to provide a nurturing environment for their children. via GIPHY 4. “Ek Shikayat hai Papa, batate hi nahi ho kuch aap” It’s heart-breaking how most father figures end up being viewed as uni-dimensional individuals by their children and society at large. Back in their time, vulnerability was seen as weakness. It’s only recently where sharing ones emotions have gained mainstream acceptance, so let’s not forget that they’re also the shaped by their experiences from an imperfect time. They would move heaven and earth just to ensure that their children wouldn’t have to witness it. It’s time for us to check-in on them. via GIPHY 5. “Dosti karlo yaar Papa… Please?”Zakir invites you to look at your father from a different lens; as a human being full of experiences, wonder and dreams. Sincere and pure, his words remind us of the fact that within our fathers there’s an entire personality waiting to be explored. So Interact, connect and cherish those stories. Hope this video inspires you to take a closer step to a beautiful friendship! via GIPHY View the full article
  14. Let’s be honest, very few of us have a picture-perfect relationship with our parents. It’s mostly filled with a lot of ups and downs, disagreements and arguments. However, the one thing that never changes is the fact that we love each other regardless of it. Fathers are the superheroes of our lives. They take care of us, look out for us and always try to be a good parent to us. From choosing our clothes to being our grooming gurus, dads have been a constant support in most of our lives. Here are five dapper dads of Bollywood that inspire us with not just their wardrobe but also their resilience, passion and talent. __ECOMLOOKS__3007__ __ECOMLOOKS__3008__ __ECOMLOOKS__3009__ __ECOMLOOKS__3010__ __ECOMLOOKS__3011__ The Bottomline While most of us end up wearing the same T-shirt again and again, taking some tips from our dads might be a good idea, be it celebrity dads or our own.

  16. If I gave you 10 seconds to think of all the times your parents went out of their way to make your day better, how many such incidents do you reckon will come to your mind? Five, thirteen, twenty-eight odd times or would it be seventy times too many to count? Take 10 seconds and just think about it. © Dharma Productions Chances are many of you could think of a hundred different occasions when your parents found the most innovative ways to make your day better, or your life significantly easier. You see, thatâs how most parents are wired, they wonât think twice before fulfilling our most earnest desires, even if it might put them in a spot. © Junglee Pictures So, when young football lover Sebastian went to the stadium to support his favourite team, his father ensured that visually-challenged Sebastianâs excitement and love for the game doesnât see a single dull moment. And hereâs what Sebastianâs father did to make sure his son doesnât miss a thing. He relayed every move that happened on-ground to his son by way of a personal commentary only meant for Sebastian! View this post on InstagramAyer tuve la oportunidad de vivir un lindo acto que me conmovió mucho, quiero compartirlo con todos ustedes, estando en el estadio metropolitano pude apreciar la pasión y el amor que siente un padre hacia su hijo, el mismo amor que sienten por el equipo de sus amores Junior. Sebastian es un hermoso niño con deficiencia visual, pero esto no le impide sentir la pasión por su equipo, su padre con dedicación y empeño le transmite cada una de las jugadas y toque a toque del balón que corre en la cancha. Que la discapacidad o la enfermedad no se convierta en un límite para tu vida ðð» Pdt - Pedi permiso al señor para grabarlo y hacer pública su acción â¤ï¸ #JuniorEsMiPasionA post shared by (@junioresmipasion) In a video that was recorded during the match at Estadio Metropolitano Roberto Meléndez in Barranquilla, we can see the father-son duo sporting Junior FC jerseys, as Sebastian gets live minute-by-minute details of the on-going game. © Instagram The video which was shared on the teamâs fan page âJunior Es Mi Pasionâ has since gone viral and came with a caption which read, âSebastian is a beautiful child with visual impairment, but this does not prevent him from feeling passion for his team, his father with dedication and commitment transmits each of the plays.â Itâs amazing isnât it, how parents would do anything to put a smile on our faces, and ensure that we donât miss out on the good things in life?

  17. It's often said that the special bond between a son and a father grows stronger with time. Proving just that, Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan took to Twitter to share a letter written by his son Abhishek when he was still a child. It's, indeed, a sweet expression of love from a son to a father. © Instagram/Abhishek Bachchan Big B wrote, “Abhishek in his glory.. a letter to me when I was away on a long outdoor schedule.." Going by the letter written by Abhishek, we can surely guess that he must have been really young when he wrote this one. It reads as, “Darling Papa, How are you? We are all well. I miss you very much. Papa you will be home soon. I am praying for your smile Papa. God is hearing our prayers. Do not worry I will look after mama, Shweta didi and the house. I am naughty sometimes. I love you Papa. Your darling son, Abhishek (sic)." Check out the letter here: T 3549 - Abhishek in his glory .. a letter to me when I was away on a long outdoor schedule .. पà¥à¤¤ सपà¥à¤¤ तॠà¤à¥à¤¯à¥à¤ धन सà¤à¤à¤¯ ; पà¥à¤¤ à¤à¤ªà¥à¤¤ तॠà¤à¥à¤¯à¥à¤ धन सà¤à¤à¤¯ pic.twitter.com/Tatw1VU1oj — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) November 14, 2019 Interestingly, Junior Bachchan also re-shared the letter and we are sure, he was quite embarrassed by his own handwriting back then. He wrote, “@SrBachchan evidently before I took a creative letter writing course (sic)." Here's the tweet: . @SrBachchan evidently before I took a creative letter writing course. ð¤¦ð½‍âï¸ https://t.co/VWWMISYgat — Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) November 15, 2019 Just after Big B shared the letter, messages from fans and admirers started pouring, calling it an adorable expression of love from a son to a father.

  18. We live in a world of memes, PUBG, Alexa and everything being available on our fingertips which is extremely different from the one our parents grew up in. While our parents have embraced the technology through the latest phones, laptops and firesticks, there are still many things about the millennial culture that they find baffling. We asked dads to give us their take on the current millennial culture that they see around them and the anecdotes we got were not only hilarious but surprising as well. Here's what the dads had to say. - Rajesh, father to a 16-year-old - Alok, father to an 18-year-old - Rajeev, father to a 20-year-old - Shekhar, father to a 15-year-old - Amit, father to a 17-year-old If you love seeing dads' take on the millennial culture then you need to watch Fathers on MX Player. This MX Exclusive and TVFPlay Original is a laugh out loud show about three middle-aged fathers who want to live the GenZ life while trying to make sense of the idiocrasies associated with the younger lot.

  19. There is something special about our men in green, won't you agree? Dressed in their crisp camo-green uniforms, with stand-out medals and stripes pinned over their proud, selfless heart evokes a kind of respect and admiration that is exclusively reserved for our greatest warriors who make up our motherland's most formidable protectors. However, given the sort of picture our mind paints when we say “army dad”, it wouldn't be wrong to state that somehow, certain aspects from their field of work often tends to rub onto the image of “army dads”. For years now, Indian television has fed its audience with a certain image of an army dad - someone who is strong yet stern, doesn't give in to strong emotions easily, is a man of few words, lives by the book and treats the world as his oyster. (c) Getty Images But, surely you don't believe all of that to be true, right? There's got to be an affectionate father's heart thrumming quietly but firmly, under that tough shell of a persona they put on everytime they don their uniforms. Like any other father on this planet, their hearts brim with love, pride, hopes and dreams for their children. Like most father's, army dads are quick to make sacrifices too but theirs always weighs heavier because it comes easily not only for their kids but also for their motherland. (c) Getty Images Army dads don't get to be around their family and children as often as they'd like, or for as long as they'd want. Duty beckons them and somehow their country always 'seems' to surpass the children to grab the top spot. Still, that never stops them from going all out looking out for them as fiercely as their motherland. There is a lot we are unaware of when it comes to a father's love towards his child, and an army dad is somehow a step ahead even here because there is so little we get to know about their personal lives. (c) Getty Images This Father's Day, we caught up with army dads and asked them to tell us their side of the story, and throw some light on the kind of relationship they share with their children given their demanding job and busy schedules. When we asked Colonel Khan Mahmood how being in the Army impacted his relationship with his kids, he told us that, “With great pride, I state that I am a third generation Army Officer. My father Late Col SA Khan has tutored me to spend quality time whenever possible. With my wife's support the impact on the relationship with both my sons has been excellent!” (c) Twitter Yet, Col Khan didn't shy away from admitting that he did miss out on some significant milestones in his sons' lives that he wishes he could make up for. Talking about it he said, “Life is certainly not a bed of roses.Who knows it better than a man proudly donning the Olive Green. I have missed out on various precious moments. Won't say 'regret' but yes I would have loved to see both my sons taking their 'first step' towards progress.” However, regardless of it all, when Col Khan shared his favourite Father's Day memory it left us beaming, just like him. He said, “For our generation 'Father's Day' is everyday. The day my 3-year-old elder son gave me a Father's Day card and wished me in the most adorable style, made me promise to try to be the best father to my sons, and best son to my father.” That isn't all, here is what other Army Dads told us about their special bonds with their children.

  20. If there was ever a character whose dressing sense enamoured every man, it was our very own Barney Stinson from 'How I Met Your Mother'. He would 'suit up', and every man would follow suit - because of the sheer class, and more importantly, relatability he brought with his sartorial game. He might have been a playboy in reel life, but IRL, he's very much a 'family man' who is married to the love of his life, and has a beautiful family with two children. This might be a shift, but his sartorial sense has remained as killer as it was in the show. In fact, his husband David Burtka too carries this trait. Together, they make the ultimate super-dads, whose style game is legit #goals. Here are 12 pictures that establish our claim. 1.

  21. We live in a world where times are changing at a rapid pace and most things around us are evolving as they should be. One of the things I am talking about is gender roles and the dynamic each gender role defines today. Gender has become a very translucent and a fluid concept in modern day India, especially amongst the new generation and the urban literates. Those who understand the concept of gender also understand there are no established norms and rules attached to it and the roles can be defined as per one's convenience. More men are taking over quintessential women roles in society. Be it becoming chefs and cooks to even learning an art form such as classical dancing, men are exceedingly becoming more flexible and letting their masculinity experience a different yet definitive stance or role altogether. © Pinterest One such thing that has emerged out of fluid gender roles is the concept of stay-at-home dads. A SAHD (stay-at-home-dad) is an embodiment of a housewife, while the working mother is out and about concentrating on her career. Now for those who think housewives are a dreary, archaic and a weak concept, they're noticeably wrong and I strongly disagree with them. My mother was a housewife and she took upon the task quite seriously. Since my dad was predominantly absent due to his job which made him travel a lot, she did the most difficult task and made it seem easy. Cooking an cleaning is not the only task of a housewife, I'll have you know, it's also structuring a life for all the other members who stay in the house, raising kids how they should be raised, heading the finances and paying the bills and running a fully-functional house with absolute perfection. © Pinterest When men exchange these roles with women and become house-husbands or SAHDs, they're enabling an empowered role for all the men, who want to understand what 'feminism' is all about or understand gender roles and how one isn't restricted to a particular type of gender identity, clearly. Now SAHds maybe different from house husbands. SAHDs sole responsibility is to take care of the children while running a house, whereas a house-husband may not have children to take care of and he does it willingly or works from home as a freelancer. A SAHD gives up his career to see his wife fulfil her career goals because she can't or doesn't want to leave her job but she can't dedicate time to her kid(s) as well. A SAHD steps up and takes responsibility for the situation and there's a really powerful role reversal there. So, in case you feel like you're headed in that direction or want to help your wife by working from home and running a house, the concept of stay-at-home-dads is quite awesome and here's why: (1) They Give Up Their Careers To Become SAHds The concept of a SAHD is that he stays at home with the kids and doesn't turn his back on fundamental responsibilities. Some working parents leave their kids in the care of nannies or at a reputed day-care while they go for work, while some want a familiar face around their kids at all times. This is when the mom or the dad take a considerate decision to quit their job and stay at home with the kids. If the dad makes the decision and wants his wife to stay at her job, then it's practically the best solution. It's not necessary the man needs to quit his job per say. He can freelance from home and take care of the kids and the house, simultaneously. © Pinterest (2) They Define New Gender Roles Back in the day, this concept would have been rather odd, but today it's not so strange anymore. Like mentioned above, gender roles are slowly changing and men and women alike are understanding and accepting the change. Stay-at-home dads are another example of changing gender roles and they're breaking barriers today, as more and more moms are heading to work and dads are taking up the responsibility of managing the kids and the household. © Pinterest (3) They Kill The Concept Of Patriarchy India has been botched with the rules of patriarchy since we can remember and patriarchy as a concept diminishes any stand equality can ever have in our society. What SAHDs do is break the even flow that patriarchy has formed and marginalise the concept of being an equal. With the absenteeism of mothers from the house during the day, the kids see their fathers emerge as the caretaker and instil ideas of nurturing within them. The kids learn equal responsibilities at a young age and they don't see the fathers as sole bread earners. They understand what a powerful role both men and women have in society and also understand the concept of being equal. © Pinterest (4) Children Learn A lot From their SAHDs Growing up with a male presence in the house, the kids learn a lot and understand masculinity is not just earning money and doing hard labour but also taking in responsibilities such as cooking, cleaning, taking care of their needs, dealing with bullies for them or even going to parent-teacher meetings. A boy growing up with his father at home will automatically learn to be kind and understanding toward women because he knows what it's like to be a woman. When he sees his wife work alone in the kitchen in the future, he will share her responsibility equally. Kids also learn that having a SAHD both genders can have a career, both genders can stay home and both genders can distribute responsibility equally and nothing is really defined. © Pinterest (5) The Father-Child Dynamic Is More Beneficial In most cases, kids usually look up to their fathers. This is also due to inherent gender roles. I remember I used to meet my father once in 6 months and was in awe of him when I was a child. Spending time with their sons or daughters at home and teaching them the ways of life is therapeutic for both the father and the child. Research suggests that kids between 7-30 months old respond more favourably to being picked up by their dads, than being picked up by their moms. Kids are also more likely to learn quickly from their dads, than their moms because fathers usually pose as an inspiration to most of them. Fatherhood comes to men only when they first see their child. Unlike mothers who feel maternal when the child is in their womb. When a man spends time with his kids he gets a keen knack of what it's like to be a father and learns a lot about his kids unlike dad's who spend all their life at work and miss out on the primitive years of their children. So, it's basically beneficial for both the child and the father. © Pinterest Stay-at-home dads have all our support because they're literally superheroes without capes! They accept gender identifies easily and don't worry about what society may feel about their roles. They do it because they love their family and we believe there is nothing to be ashamed of. Instead, it's a matter of pride that a man can endorse such a role and do it pretty well too!
  22. Breaking news people, apparently just holding your baby is 'emasculating now', well at least according to Piers Morgan. Yes, the guy who's known for trying to troll celebrities for stupid stuff and always getting hate in return, still hasn't learned his lesson. This time, he tried to go after none other than Daniel Craig and tried to shame him for the most bizarre reason. Oh 007.. not you as well?!!! #papoose #emasculatedBond pic.twitter.com/cqWiCRCFt3 — Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 15, 2018 What are you smoking, Piers? Are you okay? What kind of crisis are you having that you've got to go out of your way to make fun of a dad holding his kid? I would like to reply to that tweet with a meme – 'Fellas, is it gay for a man to have a baby with a woman and hold it securely?' But, it's good to see not a single person agreeing with him. One of the first people to give it off to Piers was Chris Evans. You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child. Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside. https://t.co/9jsHZ3WKRn — Chris Evans (@ChrisEvans) October 16, 2018 Captain America for President!

  23. We have come a long way since the times of Chaudhary Baldev Singh in 'Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge' to the Bhashkor Banerjee in 'Piku'. During this time, the father figures of Indian cinema gradually but consistently, underwent subtle transformations that were to change Bollywood's concept of cool dads, that the GenY would be able to appreciate and relate to. A lot of this change must be credited to the feminist movement that has been gaining pace and active recognition across the country, over the past few years. The feminist movement, at the very core of its existence, thrives on the need for gender equality for all, as well as equal avenue and exposure for the sexes. Feminism's another powerful fight is against the de-humanisation of men, who are carved out as stoic authoritarians, as per patriarchal ideologies. Over the past few years, Indian cinema has witnessed a gradual evolution in the father figures. These dads are not authoritarians and dictators but instead, hold the ability to be friendly, nurturing and forthcoming with their feelings towards their children and family. They are everything India is fighting for and its darn good! 1. Dattatreya - '102 Not Out' © SPE Films India Dattatreya is the new age super dad who cares for his son's health and welfare like a mother would, while he dons the father's hat. He goes out of his way to watch out for his son and enables him to face the world by his own might. He is fearless, unapologetic and openly expresses his feelings to his son. 2. Mr. Joshi - 'Shubh Mangal Saavdhan' © Colour Yellow Procductions Sugandha's father in this movie was a man who is coming to terms with GenY's openness towards love and sexuality and has moved beyond any awkwardness around such issues. He stands up for his daughter's happiness, goes against the elders and even goes on to discuss how marital bliss shouldn't take a backseat in her life. 3. Bhashkor Banerjee - 'Piku' © MSM Motion Pictures Perhaps the epitome of everything this article is talking about, Bhashkor Banerjee is his daughter's biggest cheerleader, who appreciates his daughter's achievements as well as her decisions on love and ***. He is proud of the daughter he has reared, who is capable of holding opinions and voicing them too! 4. Mr. Thapar - 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani' © Dharma Productions Bunty's dad in this movie is one of those dads who does not shy away from expressing their feelings to their children. They will sit you down and pour out all of their concerns and expectations, even if it means openly dealing with feelings. Mr. Thapar wishes to know more about the life Bunty has chosen for himself, he wants to be as involved as a mother is in her children's life and let his son know that he cares. 5. Mahavir Singh Phogat - 'Dangal' © Aamir Khan Productions Though it is true that he isn't the perfect feminist father one could show off, yet a lot of Mahavir's stance is that of a father who is defying the stereotypes and valuing his daughters' dreams, more than the ideals of the society. For him, to take up this stance in a Haryanvi community is a great move forward. 6. Kamal Mehra - 'Dil Dhadakne Do' © Excel Entertainment Another character who begins as an absolute opposite of what feminism stands for - he forces his son to join the family business against his son's wishes and is against his daughter's divorce, is almost a little insensitive towards his wife but by the end of the story, we see a changed father who fights for his daughter's happiness and safety and acknowledges his skewed ways as a husband to his wife. If that isn't a start, then what is? 7. Narottam Mishra - 'Bareilly Ki Barfi' © Junglee Pictures We admired how this character was created. Narottam is unapologetic and also happens to be his daughter's biggest champion. His daughter is opinionated, independent and knows what she wants from life and in her life partner, and Narottom supports her every step of the way. He has raised a daughter who will go on to create a life based on her own rules. 8. Amarjeet Kapoor - 'Kapoor & Sons' © Dharma Productions Amarjeet aka Dadu in 'Kapoor & Sons' does what is expected of a woman of the house - to bring the family close and keep it together. His family had grown apart due to numerous personal tragedies and Amarjeet took it upon himself to try one last time to bring the family together, so everybody could give life another a second chance, in the guise of his last wish. He doesn't succeed completely but the misunderstandings do get erased. What do you think about these dads? They're awesome right?
  24. Childcare leave is usually associated with mothers in the workforce but in a profound step taken by Deutsche bank, even Dads now have the option to take childcare leave. After January 1st, the bank will offer a maternity leave of the same time period i.e. 6 months if in case they are the primary caretakers of the house. © Pixabay The internal note circulated among the Deutsche Bank employees stated- "The new parental leave policy centers on the caregiver's responsibility, rather than tie parental leave to gender, and replaces what was previously called maternity/paternity leave. It also covers surrogacy and adoption and aligns it with parental leave entitlements. Deutsche Bank employees who are new parents can choose to either be the primary caregiver or the non-primary caregiver within the duration of the parental leave." © Pixabay It is assumed by default that woman are always the primary caretakers of the house and so most work places ignore the fact that we live in a progressive society and now even men are partaking in childcare responsibilities. © Pixabay Madhavi Lall, head, human resources, Deutsche Bank India, said: "The new policy will fight several unconscious biases that are prevalent in society. If a male employee happens to be the primary caregiver, he can now give a self-declaration and avail up to six months of parental leave. If an employee's wife is required to return to work in three months after childbirth and the husband (a DB employee) becomes the primary caregiver for the child, he can avail of the new parental leave benefits." Looks like we’re truly moving forward as a society.
