There is someone who loves you more than mummy

Monday, May 07, 2012

Dad’s the Word: The Perils and Pleasures of Fatherwood by Soumya Bhattacharya seeks to redress the alleged shortcomings in the many tomes about baby-care and parenting – the failure to see the father’s point of view.
As Bhattacharya himself beautifully says, “Nothing – traveling around the world on my own, having a job, being married, seeing my name on the cover of a book – has made me feel as grown up and responsible as crossing the road with my index finger inside my daughter’s fist.”

“Our girl wants to win every time at every board game she plays with my wife and me. So we manage to lose at every game we play with her. That is easy enough at, say carom or chess. But how does one contrive to lose at snakes and ladders? I push the marker up five paces when the dice says six so that I avoid a ladder and am eaten by a snake.” A lovely memoir.
