From my early childhood days, I have been bombarded with stories about the bravery of Banda, the courage of Nalwa, and the glory of Ranjit Singh. As I grew older, I encountered the strategy of General Arora and the charisma of Jarnail Singh. I wanted to fly like Superman, dunk like Jordan, and kiss the noose like Sarabha.
Growing up, I was so scared of my father. His staunch stature, echoing voice, and busy schedule kept me distant from him. Fearful of his strictness, I never felt comfortable with him. I would rather piss in my pants than ask him permission to use the bathroom. But then 1984 happened.
