Father Daughter Dance: Thinking about asking your conservative dad?
When we think about Indian dads, we think about their struggles, their commitment to family, their successes due to hardwork and perseverance. The bonds between a daughter and father is a very special one – you will always be his “princess”. So, at your wedding you want to show how much you value his love and support – and you want to do it in an American way. You want to dance with your father at the reception. But, you’re afraid – first to ask him, and then to get him excited and involved. Some dads are good sports and fun loving – and perhaps they are good at dancing. You’re a lucky girl – this dance is easy for you. But, it’s the protypical indian dad – the workaholic and the serious types that are the problem.
