A Chip Off The Old Block!

The theme for Indispire’s edition No. 70 asks “So, what makes a dad great?”

Well, in response I would say if you are a chip off the old block and proud of it, that’s what makes a dad great!

Speaking on the subject of #GreatDads, here’s my lights, camera, action narration on why this chip off the old block thinks her dad was great.

Seen the video? Well, here are some of the promised pictures of my dad or Appa as my sister, Sudha Seshadri, & I used to call him.

To conclude, I would like to thank Indispire for choosing #GreatDads as a theme this week. It prompted me into doing this tribute to my father.
