A father and daughter walking on the foot path would have normally escaped my attention. But somehow the sight of this struck me as very special and rare sight.
How many grown up daughters hold the hands of their fathers and walk happily, chatting, laughing on the road oblivious of the public stare?

How many grown up children walk with their father holding hands?

How many grown up children ignore their fathers?

How many grown up children refuse to go with their fathers anywhere?

What do you think?

what you found out is very different.
may be that is a part of our culture.
but my mom is opposite to this. i always tend to catch her hands but she always make fun of me .
good luck

Hi sir,

Nice photos, as usual :) I like to hold the hands of my parents, sometimes even like to put hands on their shoulders while walking :)

And your photos remind me of a good tamil movie, ABHIYUM NAANUM. It's about father-daughter relationship...If you get a chance watch it.You'll love it.

It is quite uncommon in Australia. That is why I make the most of Hannah's cuddles! :-)

Perfect love drives fear away!

And Happy New Year Joseph! :-D

Hi Joseph!

I've been "grounded" from blogging for 30 days, starting December 26th. I just wanted to let you know I'm okay, and that you're in my prayers. :)

Hi Joseph,

I don't see many grown–up daughters holding their father's hands in this part of the world. I guess it depends on one's upbringing.

Have a nice day!

Hi Joseph,
It is also rare in the U.S., I can't remember seeing it in years. It is such a tender and loving way to express affection, so respectful. My son's wife holds hands with her sister, and this is also unusual here. There is such power in the touch.
God bless,
