This Father’s Day, Team POPxo Talks About The Dad-est Things Their Fathers Have Done!

Our dads are our superheroes. They work hard to give us the best in life and will do whatever it takes to bring a smile to our face. They deserve more credit than what we give them. This Father’s Day, I asked my teammates about the dad-est thing their dad has done for them. If you like all things mushy, I bet that their stories will touch your heart. Let’s roll with daddy cool, shall we?

1. He’s not as chill as he’d like to be.


“I will always be your father, never your best friend” is what my dad has said to me all my life and adhered to it. He is SUCH a dad. Every day without fail at 7:30-8pm I get a message from him that says, ‘Kidher’. When I respond and say I’m going to come back home late, there’s radio silence until 11:30 pm and then I get a ‘Good Night’, but he isn’t actually sleeping that time. It is his way of saying, “where, in the name of God, are you and why aren’t you home yet?” But he’s trying to be macho and nonchalant about it. – Kannagi Desai, Junior Beauty Editor

2. The dad-est of them ALL!


My father is probably the dad-est of them all. He’s such a sweetheart and a pure soul. He never lets anyone, and I mean anyone, say anything to me ever, even if he fights with me all the time. When I was in Bombay for my post-graduation, we would call each other about 7-8 times per day (no kidding!) and tell the other person EVERYTHING about our day. He’s picked up a new habit these days. Every morning, since the past year or so, he goes to every room in the house and puts everyone’s phones on charging so that by the time my mum, my brother and I are up, our phones are fully charged and we don’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day. I mean, who does that? Totes adorbs! – Srishti Gupta, Junior Lifestyle Editor

3. Country music and early morning drives!


When I was in kindergarten, my dad used to drop me to school every day. Nothing has changed till date. Whenever he can, he still wakes up early in the morning and drops me to work or for my Japanese classes. He could let me travel on my own, but he once mentioned to me that he cherishes our quality time we have in the car. Talking to him with country music playing in the background is what good mornings are made of.  – Sharon Alphonso, Beauty Writer

4. A dad who’ll do anything for his li’l princess  


When I was a kid, I was really fond of Barbie. I used to pass by these toy shops and see these fancy dolls and always wanted to own one. My father was in his early years of employment and my parents did not have the heart to tell me that we can’t afford it. One day, I came to know that my father had to travel to the US for 3 months to work on a project. When he was leaving for the airport, he made me sit on his shoulders (yes, that was my favourite and most comforting place) and asked me, “What should I get you from the US?” and obviously my reply was “a Barbie”. Yes, he did fulfil my wish and got me two barbies instead. It was at a later, when I was mature enough to understand the hardships of life, that my mother told me that he skipped his meals and saved up to buy me dolls. I can never forget what he did for me. It is these small sacrifices which dads make, and this is what makes them our hero! – Prachi Bishnoi, Assistant Manager Brand Solutions

5. Because dad knows that pizza is bae


My dad travels a lot, he is usually away for weeks and he definitely misses ghar ka khana. So every time he returns from his trips, he just wants to have the homemade delicacies (fish and rice, staple Bengali khana). Me on the other side, I look forward to bahar ka khana (who wants to eat ghar ka khana every day). A sweet thing my dad does, he always asks “should I order something for you?” and gets me my favourites all the time. So at the dinner table, it’s him feasting on fish-rice and me over stuffing my face with pizza

FYI, he knows my taste buds too well. He will know exactly which pizza to order or which sauce I want in my subway sandwich. He also knows which flavour of Natural’s ice cream I would want to have. My daddy is the best– Papiya Guha, Manager, Sales

6. Do you have my number?!

Saachi Bamba

I suck at calling people up. I am more of a WhatsApp person. My friends and family know that too well by now. So, they are the first ones to call me up whenever they want to talk to me. Since the time I have moved out of my home, I get a call from my father exactly after he finishes his dinner. TYPICAL DAD. And the first thing he says when I pick his call is “Do you know who I am? Oh, I thought you didn’t. Maybe you lost my number then!” – Saachi Bamba, Editorial Coordinator

7. No means no (or yes, maybe?)!


Daddy thinks I am spoilt. But I have a very simple answer to that – he’s the one who spoils me every time. And honestly, I love it. He tells me that I love all things fancy and if I tell him I want something he says no over the phone but always comes back home with it. He is the best daddy in the whole world and I don’t think I would have it any other way! – Krithika Kumar, Senior Features Writer

8.Welcome to adulthood, son!


My father is helping me in adulting the right way. He reminds me to pay my taxes at the right time, helps me with investments and even puts a cap on my spending. He makes sure that I am prepared for my future. In short, he’s making me more responsible and a good citizen. Just like him! – Anurag Sharma, Senior Associate, Brand Solutions
