New Delhi: “Today is a very special day for me because I get to celebrate the people I love more than my life and they’re my beloved parents! Mom and dad, thank you for the greatest gift of all, the gift of unconditional love. Happy Parents’ Day!,” said Dr. Sandeep Marwah Chancellor of AAFT University of Media And Arts while talking to the students on Global Day of Parents.
Global Day of Parents is an annual event that is celebrated on June 1 to honour all the parents around the world for being the anchor of their families and selflessly nurturing and protecting their children.
The day was declared as the Global Day of Parents by the UN General Assembly in 2012. This was done to appreciate all parents for their lifelong sacrifice towards raising their children. Parents play a key role in the health, emotional well-being, and education of a child.
“On the Global Day of Parents, you must thank your parents for shaping your life and protecting you from all kinds of sufferings and difficulties. Now that you have grown up, make sure your parents do not feel lonely as they always stood by your side in every thick and thin,” emphasized Dr. Marwah while answering few questions.
