Father's Day Special
Glimpse|June 2018

It’s remarkable how fatherhood can profoundly change a man. From taking the first steps, trying to peddle the cycle for the first time till finding a shoulder to cry on when the world falls apart – fathers are the one person whose sight comes with the surety of safety. This time Glimpse has brought forth ‘Super Dads’, who are not only heading high professionally but also personally by managing time and keeping the family intact.

ANUP KUMAR

It is truly said that any man can be a father but it takes someone special to be a ‘dad’! This is the case with Anup Kumar - the handsome and stylish CEO of Acme (Music Company and Artist Management Company). He is also the owner of a Production house -Ullumanati.

A nup has mastered the art of balancing the work and family. Probably this is the reason that inspite of being ultra-busy, he is still being able to share a strong bond with his angelic son, Angad.

What kind of bond do you share with your kid?

I share a very intimate bond with my son. I am a kind of friend to him with whom he can share everything. We two love spending time together and I enjoy his company more than anything in this world.

What do you think is the right way of inculcating good habits in your kid?

For inculcating good values in kids, you have to start from the very day he or she is born. The root of good values is respect for another person and that he learns from parents. So, I and my wife always make sure that we are respectful towards each other. Also, we do not believe in forcing manners on the kid, rather let him learn naturally and for that the solution is to have a conductive environment at home. Another thing, which I always take care of, is not to retort to ranting or raving while correcting him. Be polite and calmly talk to your child, this is the best way to make him understand.

With most of your time dedicated to work and kid, how do you unwind and enjoy “me time”?

I wake up early in the morning and go for exercising or jogging. This is what keeps my body and mind charged for the day. The other thing I do is keep certain weeknights reserved for myself and cancel plans on that day if any. To be more sure of the same, I just buy tickets or pay in advance for things I like doing so that I get to spend my time there.

How did you train him to be disciplined?

Your discipline tactics shouldn't be about controlling your child. Instead, discipline should be about teaching your child how to control himself. For that, let him decide the time table and manage things but make sure he sticks to it. In case, of derailment be ready with punishment and similarly reward him too.

What is a typical day with your kid really like?

We spend it playing video games, cooking his favourite dish, playing football in the lawn, bowling, and taking him out for a movie or dinner.

What do you think in what aspect is father –child bond is different than a mother child bond?

Every bond is different; with me my son can have more fun and do more activities like playing video games, basketball or go for a soccer match. In fact, he has a special comfort zone with me and I really enjoy this bond.

How has your life changed after becoming father?

Well, my life took an altogether different shape after I became a father. Initially, the only thing I could think of was spending time with my child, I could find no time for anything else but then gradually learnt to manage things. I felt responsible in a totally different way which made me curtail on my unnecessary expenses. Family now comes at the top of my priority list and whatever little time I get, I spend it with my kid and wife.

Share some of the memorable moments spent with your kid?

Every moment which I get to spend with Angad out of my busy schedule is well spent.

SUNNY DHIMAN

It is said that a boy’s father is one the most influential people in his life-from infant to toddler to tween to teen –Dads are such a big impact on his little one’s development into a strong and obedient young man.

Taking a sneak peek into the life of Sunny Dhiman who is a father of a 3 year old boy- Aadil, Sunny is an ace photographer and also a film maker, he puts in all his heart and soul to his work but he makes sure that whatever time he gets he spends it with his pretty wife and lovely son.

With most of your time dedicated to work and kids, how do you unwind and enjoy "me time"?

Everyday day at the gym is my favourite me time but otherwise my kind of a day includes- me on my couch while watching some good movie and having a fine drink.

What kind of a bond do you share with your kid?
