पिता दिवस की शुभकामना – Happy Father’s Day

International Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide to recognize the contribution that fathers  make to the lives of their children and to the society. This day celebrates fatherhood and male parenting. Although it is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide, many countries including India and Greece observe this day on the third Sunday in June.

The  Father’s Day was created by Sonora Smart Dodd in 1910, to honour, among others, her own father, William Jackson Smart, a veteran of the American Civil War, who raised her and her five siblings after their mother died.

Listen to the soulful Hindi song, ‘Mere Papa’ (my father) this Father’s Day, a musical tribute to all the fathers around the world.
