Losing someone close to our heart is the one thing we wish we never have to face. The pain and agony that the family goes through are indescribable. It wasn’t easy for actor Bhumi Pednekar to lose her father to cancer when she was just 18. Remembering her father Satish Motiram Pednekar on his birth anniversary, the ‘Bala’ actor took to social media and shared an emotional poem, reports Hindustan Times.
In the lengthy poem, she wrote how her sister’s smile reminds her of him and how her mom still blushes like a teenager when she speaks about her father.

Happy birthday Papa ♥️ I miss you everyday,every minute and every second… But then,I see you everywhere … When I look at myself,my eyes just like yours… When samu smiles,her smile is full of that same mischief … When we trouble mom and she says – you both are just like Satish. When we do some good,she says – you both are just like Satish. When mom speaks about you she blushes like a teenager, that small little tear lights up her eye,with happiness and undying longing and love for the love of her life . When Subhash kaka tell us about your epic escapades and courage .Your kindness and generosity – ‘Arre our Satish was a king with a heart of gold ‘ – he says . Every Ganesh Chaturthi when Pinky Bua misses her brother and baddi her son – ‘aarti toh Satish karta tha ‘ ‘Satish ke pasand ke aloo puri’ were made every time with so much love . Every Eid at Rashid kaka’s and the fun we had, I’m sure he misses his friend and all your pranks. I remember each morning that you woke me up with that bitter karela juice,all the sour world news and your sweet sweet smile. I remember each night that you stayed up with me during my exams… I remember every-time you fed me with yours hands… Every-time you prepared that hot water bottle for my cramps… Every-time i manipulated you for the things I want … Every-time you pretended like,nothing I said was false … Every time you picked me up from school and we listened to Madonna on our way back… Every-time you picked me up in life and taught me a new hack… Every-time I pretended to sleep post our bedtime… Every-time I sneaked out of the house which was a crime , And now I know you knew it all,you let me make my mistakes cause you knew life was short. Every cricket and football match that we watched… Every birthday of ours,where you made us feel like we were gods … Every failure of ours was celebrated and every success learnt from. You taught us to love all and made us strong. Every time they say,you both are just like Him.I miss you even more cause I wish you could have seen the ‘You’, that we have become. #SatishMotiramPednekar #HappyBirthdayPapa #MissYou
She went on to write how her other family members often reminisce about him. “When Subhash kaka tells us about your epic escapades and courage. Your kindness and generosity – ‘Arre our Satish was a king with a heart of gold,’ he says. Every Ganesh Chaturthi when Pinky Bua misses her brother and baddi her son, ‘aarti toh Satish karta tha’, ‘Satish ke pasand ke aloo puri’ were made every time with so much love. Every Eid at Rashid kaka’s and the fun we had, I’m sure he misses his friend and all your pranks,” she wrote.
She ended the poem by writing, “Every time they say, you both are just like him, I miss you even more cause I wish you could have seen the ‘You’, that we have become.”
Bhumi, who rose to fame with her debut movie, ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ in 2015 also shared multiple throwback pictures of her father.
It is true that when someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes the greatest treasure. More power to you, Bhumi. Your father must be proud of you.
