  • When my sister and I were little, our dad would announce his arrival every evening by whistling outside the window. It was a ritual; we would hear his Rajdoot motorcycle rumble to a stop, and then the familiar whistle would follow. My sister and would leave everything we were doing and rush out to greet him.

    My dad recently celebrated his 60th birthday. "I have finally become a senior citizen," he exclaimed to me. We have both seen each other grow older, through my teen tantrums, leaving home for studies, and marriage, and through his innumerable official trips, transfers and his illnesses. But every now and then, when I watch a video such as this one, I cannot help but be transported to the beautiful days of old; a simple time when my father would come home from work, much to the glee of my sister and I.

    Whether you have a dad or you are a dad, this video is sure to bring back some memories. Share them with us. Leave your comments in the space below.

"You may be better at the playing the stereotypical 'dad' role…and you may be the tough disciplinarian," write the AstroTwins. "Even if you still play the stereotypical 'mom' role, your strength and boundless energy still permeate your every move."

    You're old-fashioned and rigid
