My dad, my hero

June 09, 2010 17:52 IST

Share unforgettable memories of your father with us.

He's been by your side since the day you were born. He taught you how to swim, bought you your first bicycle, kept your secrets from your mom and stood by you when you messed up.

With Father's Day coming up on June 20, it is time to show your dad he has meant to you.

And even if you aren't one of those who likes to show him your love just once a year, you sure can tell us your special story.

Everyone has that one memory of something unforgettable their father has done, something that justifies your hero-worshipping him as a wide-eyed youngster. So tell us of that instance when he came through for you and rose in your estimation beyond Superman!

Share your story with us. Simply write in to (subject line: 'My dad my hero') and we'll publish the best entries right here on

If you can, do send in a photograph of you and your dad too, to publish alongside your story!

What better way of showing your dad how much you love him this Father's Day?
