LAHORE Like many parts of the globe, Fathers Day was observed across the country and the provincial capital as well on Sunday in honour of the fathers role in the lives of the children. On the day, the children shared their love and gifts to their fathers for their care. Different NGOs organiszed walks in connection with Fathers Day while newspapers published special editions and TV channels aired programmes to create awareness about the day. My Foundation for Separated Children and Families, a non-governmental organizstion working for the children who are suffering in guardian courts organised a walk at Liberty Chowk in connection with the day. The participants of the walk including single parents and children shared their feelings on the occasion. They were holding placards and banners, inscribed with quotes about the importance of fathers in ones life. The parents also shared their miseries regarding pending cases in guardian courts. We all wanted to share this day with our children, for which we have filed applications with the guardian court. But honourable courts did not give any consideration to our applications, they said. In commemoration of the day, the children were looked busy in purchasing gifts to present to their fathers especially in posh areas markets including Liberty Market Gulberg, Main Market, Moon market, Defence (Y) Block Market and others. An excited 11-year child, buying gift at Moon Market Iqbal Town said he want to express his love to his father by presenting him a special gift on the day. He said he always felt very happy in the company of his father. Ali Hassain, a student of O-Level said his father was very kind to him and also a teacher who told him about right and wrong. He said he was inspired by his father and wanted to be like him.
