Doting fathers, wise teachers and cool buddies — men are playing all these roles, when it comes to their children Being a father is a big responsibility. I spend my Sundays teaching my kids the ways of life

Gone are the days when a father was a stern figure in the family. Busy schedules, long working hours and appointments are no excuse, new age fathers ensure that they are much more involved in the process of raising a child.

Dr Muffazal Lakdawala, married to model Aditi Govithrikar, says he loves spending time with his eightyear-old daughter Kiara and threemonth-old son Zhiaan. For this laparoscopic and gastro-intestinal surgeon, fatherhood has changed his life. “We are fooling ourselves when we feel that we are spending quality time with our chil dren. Time is everything when it comes to kids and then they need as much of it as we can give them,” says Dr. Lakdawala.

“In fact, looking after a child is an experience in itself. Being a father is a big responsibility. Apart from ensuring the child’s physical wellness, mental well-being is equally important. I spend my Sundays teaching my kids the ways of life,” adds Dr Lakdawala.

Singer Shaan proudly recollects his nappy-changing days. “I was completely involved in the babyrearing process. I laugh sometimes thinking about how I used to freak out when our first child Soham was born. I was unsure about what to do, whether I will be able to be a good father. But, I was much more experienced when Shubh was born. In fact I took a month off from work to spend time with my sons and wife, Radhika. That really created a special bond,” reveals this doting dad.

Whether it is playing at the park or watching movies together, Shaan takes time out with his sons and arranges a boy’s day out for the three of them regularly. “I ensure that I’m present at all the events that my sons participate in, like the school Annual Day or Sports Day.” Dr Varkha Chulani says, “Spending quality time together and communicating effectively are two of the greatest means of developing a strong relationship between children and their fathers.” Fashion designer Lascylles Simmon says, “I like to pamper my child. I bought my daughter a PSP, PS2 and a Nitendo DS too. I also bought a rare limited-edition doll for her, which soon had only one arm and leg. I started buying books too. I want to ensure she has all the joys in life that I didn’t have when I was young.” Lyricist Javed Akhtar believes that a child’s personality reflects what he sees. “If you want your child to read, read in front of him. If you want him to respect you, ask yourself do you respect your parents? Home is the biggest place to learn lessons for children. And that’s how I brought up Farhan,” he says.
