Happy Father’s Day – पिता दिवस की शुभकामना

The International Father’s Day is celebrated worldwide as a sign of respect and gratitude for the contribution that fathers make to the lives of their children and to society. This is the day celebrating paternity. Although celebrated on different dates worldwide, many countries, such as India and Greece, have established their celebration on the third Sunday in June.

Inspirer of the Father’s Day is the American Sovora Smart Dodd, who established the celebration in 1910 to commemorate her father William Jackson Smart, a veteran of the American Civil War, who alone nursed the six children of the family.

Listen to the beautiful song “Mere Papa” (my father) in Hindi, a musical tribute to the fathers all over the world.
