Father’s Day is celebrated in India, the United States of America and several other parts of the world on the third Sunday of June. This day was commemorated to complement Mother’s Day celebrations. On this day the bonds of fatherhood, the role of fathers in families and society, and paternal bonds are celebrated. The day was first proposed in 1909, and the first time it was celebrated was on June 19, 1910. Unlike India and the United States of America, European countries like Portugal, Spain, Croatia and Italy, among others, celebrate Father’s Day on March 19. And for those boys and men who are yet to turn fathers, or don’t wish to at all, worry not, International Men’s Day is the annual international event which is celebrated on 19 November, and is a celebration of all boys and men alike.

In India, we may be not as friendly with our fathers as we are with our mothers, especially since most Indian fathers assume a rather strict role. However, Father’s day is the perfect occasion to break the ice and to get a little more pally and familiar with your father, if not now, then when? Here are some great quotes and sayings that will help you convey your appreciation for your father to him in not so many words, and make your father feel appreciated. Read on:
