No, I am not an activist.
I am the father to a 2.5-year-old child.
My love for my child is in no way lesser to that of his Mother.
Yes, I do not have a womb. But, I have a heart that lactates.
The Embrace of - My Son
I took my lil Chimp in my arms, held him close to my heart, he brushed his face along my chest. All of a sudden, I had a lil lump in my heart at that very moment. My eyes went moist. A stream of joy trickled down freely down my cheek.
Being a father is an emotion which cannot be put in words and explained.
It was a similar night,
when crescent moon
kindled the skies,
a tiny Lil star twinkled,
my lil child was born.
I bore him in my heart,
The heart which lactates.
You measure it not!
