She described him as a “difficult man” who was also very principled and this annoyed everybody. According to her post, he gave his kids “sense by fire by force”.
Her caption reads ;
Today was my Father’s Birthday. He would have been 68. I woke up grouchy and all emotional and stuff. He was a very difficult man or maybe he wasn’t – maybe We didn’t really take the time to get to actually know each other. But one thing I can categorically say was that My father was an extremely principled man. It annoyed everybody. He wouldn’t take no bribes or ever look the other way. He was such a hard worker and had no trouble getting his hands dirty just to get the job done properly. He was strict as heck- too strict I still think but he gave us sense by fire by force. He never compromised with education- he would pay our fees in the best schools over buying anything for himself- EVERRR. I really wanna say he was the Best father but I would be lying and there’s really no point in that. Regardless, He was my father and he tried his best. I think his best could have been better, I wish it was but at least it helps me not to make the same mistakes with my own children and so I suppose it was all part of the grand plan after all. He prayed for his children, he prayed & fought for me till his last breath during my pregnancy and Despite all the fights he threw my way- I’m glad that Nose ring, nipple rings and all- Me becoming a mother truly made him proud. Continue to Rest In Peace Tata- I miss you and I wish you got to see my Daughter cos you would have loved her too much- Don’t ever stop watching over us- I felt you today and I know you had a chat with Starr cos she was definitely speaking to someone and it wasn’t me. We love you???
