Papa is an amazing man.
He had no education, other than his High School Certificate. Arm with determination and grit, he embarked on a journey of epic proportions, given his limited resources.
Now that he's gone, coming back to his house is always very nostalgic for me. Inspiring too.
How this amazing giant of a father and man, could build two homes, brought up a family consisting of a wife and four children, all by himself on his meagre salary.
Could put all four of us through life and school, and through education. The same man, who didn't have any education, who quietly and patiently, worked his way up the ladder.
The houses that papa built are proof of his determination and grit.
Papa, you're amazing.
