Each year as Father’s Day draws near, social media platforms flood with posts: some bemoaning how undervalued and thankless a father’s job is, others attempting (though not necessarily in vain) at shedding some much-needed light on a father’s role. These posts hail fathers as bread-winners, confidantes, best-friends, and protectors; yet, they fall short of provoking the emotive response which this topic justifies, for they fail to give this man who personifies many a lofty ideal, a human face. We, at …, aim to rectify precisely this in the present article. This Father’s Day, we interviewed Saurabh Mehrotra London father to an 18-year-old daughter and a 12-year-old son.
