A mini adventure!

A friend of mine shared the story of Beijing-based photographer, Stefen Chow, who went on a mini adventure with his 2-year old daughter. Stefen’s travelogue & some of the outstanding photographs he took over the course of his journey inspired me to create today’s #myfather #illustration. Tell us how you wanna show your world to your little girl. Share your story at My Father illustrations [source:]


Woman-of-the-match Harmanpreet Kaur!!!

Harmanpreet scored a 31-ball 46 against Australia in January 2016 that brought home a record victory for India. Growing up in a remote village in Punjab, she says, “We (girls) would often have to play on the corner pitches because the boys got the main pitches”. It is not easy to become a cricketer in India if you’re a woman. Many were against her. But one man who stood tall by her side was her father. He continues to be her lifeline.
