    Being a single Parent is not a life full of struggles...rather its a journey for the STRONG. Tried to portray my own life journey through the bond of love between me and my son with this regular routine of our daily life. When I lost my wife in an accident 7 years back, it was almost very difficult and painful to handle his innocence. But gradually with time the understanding between us becomes a real gift for me and its not only boost my energy rather a guiding force for the years ahead...

    Navin, I really like this photograph and caption about being a single parent. It's a candid shot that shows your devotion to your son. The apron you are wearing makes the image for me, it shows a domestic side to fatherhood that is often overlooked I think. I love that you say you it is not full of struggles but rather has made you strong. What a perspective. Thank you for your thoughtful submission. Your son is lucky to have you.
