The 5 finalists breathe a sigh of relief but it’s now time for the deciding question.

One by one the esteemed judges put forward there tricky questions. From why do you want to win this pageant to who would you like to go on a date with? From choosing between modelling and acting to deciding between success and riches, the finalists were put through all sorts of tests. In between all these questions and answers, there was one that won a thousand hearts that evening.

“If it were the last day of your life, who would you spend it with, and why?” one of the judge posed the question to Contestant No. 4.

Contestant No.4: … a few moments of thought and then came the answer:

‘A Father has a prime role to play in the life of his daughter. He is the  first male that a girl comes across and hence, becomes the role model of  her life. She sees the reflection of men in the rest of the world, through  her dad and often perceives that all men should be like her father. Right  from her childhood to adolescence to adulthood, he plays an influential role in her life.

He is the guide, the saviour, the protector, a friend and most importantly, the ultimate caretaker, who nourishes her in the loving and protective atmosphere set by him. I have seen my daddy assuming multi-faceted role, which keeps changing with the changing phases of my life.

I would like to dedicate the last day of my life to my Father, and those 24 hours I would spend in his company.’

What followed was a thundering applause. The MC was amazed with the  answer and the applause that followed. ‘Is your lucky father around’.  asked the MC. ‘Yes, he is very much there’ Contestant No 4 replied. MC requested the lucky father to please stand up wherever he was. The proud father stood up and waved his hand. Thousands of eyes turned towards him, cameras and flashlights moved towards the proud father. And there was another round of great applause for him. He was touched. He was emotional. He folded his hands and thanked the crowd for the applause. There were tears in his eyes. He had received the greatest gift of his life from his  daughter.

This is a true story of love, affection and dedication of a Daughter towards her Dad demonstrated at MB Club, Lucknow. You may like to convey this message to those who regard the emotional bond of a Daughter and a Dad.
