Life is never the same when you lose one of the important relationships of your life, especially your father. After all, a father is the one, who himself might be in immense pain yet he will be worried whether we are 'ok' or not. We might be miles away but our fathers' first question always is 'beta khaana khaya' and he will end his every sentence with 'Chal ab kuch kha le'. That's the kind of love a father holds for his children. Recently, Indian cricketer, Hardik Pandya's entire world was turned upside-down with the demise of his loving father, Himanshu Pandya.
