Dad

Return of the Maggi and why every great dad (and husband), needs to master the art of making Maggi!

Its been 35 years since the greatest meal every produced in a packet got introduced in India. Maggi Maggi Maggi! No kid born in the 80’s can ever forget…

Sleeping on his own

This question gets asked, discussed, debated between parents all the time a little after the kiddo turns 3-4. It has nothing to do with craving intimacy, privacy and wanting your own space. Well, we pretty much signed it off the day our bundle of joy arrived, but has got everything to do with their growing bodies and their insane ability to turn a full 360 on the bed kicking off both parents in different bite sized corners of the bed.

About Me

Son. Husband. Brother. Best Friend. Writer. Traveler. Cricket. Boxer. Someday, a filmmaker. Struggling with my fitness. A big foodie. A media professional. I worship many gods… Amitabh Bachchan, Sachin Tendulkar & Roger Federer are a few of them and I simply love Shah Rukh Khan. I play many roles. But I enjoy being a “Dad” to my 6 year old, the most. And yes, whilst I have named this blog “SoccerDad” I must admit that I hate soccer and have hardly played the game in my life. But there’s a reason why I have decided to call it that. “Soccer Mom” was a label put on married middle class women who were homemakers with a key role of managing the home, kids and taking the kids to their soccer games and other activities. Today’s moms are anything but that. So “Soccerdad” stands for the same label albeit with a twist and an intent to break the prevailing stereotypes attached to men. Today married men and dads, at least most of the ones I know, are very involved fathers and husbands and are absolutely hand-on when it comes to their kids. This blog is about the modern dad. Managing the home & kids and still juggling professional careers is no longer a thing for only women and men today do a spectacular job of the same. In fact, I know many dads who are more hands-on than the moms when it comes to their kids. Through this blog I intend to bring out the adventures of a dad, that’s me, who is trying to make sense of all the madness going on around him and who still tried to stay cool whilst juggling all of the roles above.

I also write. A lot.

And the most important thing, according to my 6 year old son Vivaan, I am the best “BUM CLEANER “in the world!
