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.
