Dear dad,
The time I’ve spent away from you and mom... it made me realize, that dad, what you’ve gone through, to make sure all my dreams came true, I know I can never repay what you’ve done for me. I’ll try dad, I’ll try to be the best. I’ll make you proud of me one day. I’ll make sure you can tell the world with your head up high that yes, she is my daughter.
I know dad, I’ve made a whole lot of mistakes and shattered all your dreams for my selfish reasons. I’m sorry dad. I know I’ll never be able to forgive myself for that. You have always been my inspiration. My light of hope in this eternal world of darkness, Even as the time gets tough I’ll know I have to carry on for it’s you and mom for whom I make this journey.
I know I’ve never showed it out. But dad I do respect you, for whatever decisions you’ve taken. That has made me who I am today. Where ever I am dad and whatever I may be doing , remember one thing, I am doing it all for you.
I promise dad. I’ll be a better daughter, I promise to be what you always wanted me to be. I promise to always make you keep your head up high. And I promise dad, I’m always by your side, no matter what life brings in front of us.
Dad, I Love you and will be there for you no matter what. You’re the strongest person on this earth dad, and however bad I may have behaved all this while, please do forgive me.

With loads of love,
Your loving daughter.

Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad

The game of golf, like every other aspect of life, is often subject to the vagaries of law. As a golfer myself, I decided to make the connection between the game I love and the subject that I am pursuing. Well, I didn’t have to look far. Golf is a game filled with intricate rules and regulations. What is LAW? In general, a rule of being or of conduct, established by an authority able to enforce its will; a controlling regulation; the mode or order according to which an agent or a power acts. So the rules and regulations of the game is nothing but the Law of the game.Violating "the law" of golf can have serious consequences.

The rules are so seriously applied in this game that The United States Golf Association (U.S.G.A) and The Royal and Ancient Golf club of Saint Andrew (yes, it is a name of a club) write, interpret and revise the rules every 4 years!
The game of golf has rules ranging from the minutest detail of the size of the ball till the huge ones which result in disqualifications!.
Here’s an instance, the rule of golf state that, “You must play the ball as it lies” which in simple terms means that you cannot modify, or do something that affects the position of the ball in play except under certain circumstances. The penalty for not complying with this rule is “you’ll lose the hole in the case of match play or incur a two stroke penalty” (Trust me! That’s like the worst thing possible; it ruins your entire game)
The connection to law? In law of torts, there is a breach of a legal right. Let’s say without the breach an individual just like the golf ball remains in the same position. And as a liability a defendant faces a penalty or a suit for damages like a unsuspecting or intentional golfer penalized for negligence and breach of duty
Therefore, each rule of golf will have a way into the law of the land. 

That’s why they say the golfer who follows all the rules of the game must be one hell of a lawyer”
