Actor, Director and Screenwriter Rahul Bose wrote a heartwarming note to his father’s birthday. On Friday he wrote in his Instagram a warm note for his father late Rupen Bose.
He wrote on Instagram along with a photo with his father, “I was 8. He would take the morning off work and we’d go to watch test cricket at Wankhede. We used to enter from Marine Drive near Zaver Mahal. Park the car across the road and queue up to get into the stadium. The rule was simple: I had to always hold his index finger during the walk-in. It used to be crowded but never suffocating. He had prepared my lunch box, water bottle and given me a cap for when the sun hit the west stand in the evening. My steps would quicken when I’d hear a roar from the crowds inside. The finger would restrain my speed. Up the stairs, into daylight and the thrill, the splendour of cricket bathed in sunshine with 20,000 people watching. It was only when we’d reached our seats that I was allowed to release the finger. I can never forget the sense of safety that finger gave me. It was as if once I held it I was cloaked in intergalactic protective armour. That’s the wonder of being the right kind of father. It makes your son Superman.”
He further wrote,”This image was taken 22 years after those test match days. 22 years after a boy had experienced boundless love and kindness. Thank you, Baba. You were everything a little boy could ever want in a dad. Happy birthday. #RupenBose (1930-2007)”
