Dad’s outstanding contributions

Eugene Robinson wrote in the Washington Post:

“Earl Woods did much more than raise a supremely talented golfer. In an age when it’s rare to read a sentence with the words ‘African American’ and ‘father’ that doesn’t also include ‘absent’ or some other pejorative, Earl and Tiger Woods were the world’s most visible, and inspiring, counterexample. ‘He was the person I looked up to more than anyone,’ Tiger Woods said following his father’s death, and even the world’s biggest cynic had to know he meant every word.

“To me, the two defining aspects of Tiger Woods’s career have been his supernatural ability to make a golf ball do impossible things and his relationship with his father. Two moments stand out: The Sunday afternoon in 1997 when Tiger became the first black man ever to win the Masters and cried like a little boy in the arms of his father, who was there against doctor’s orders after almost dying in heart surgery. And the Sunday afternoon in 2005 when Tiger won his fourth Masters and cried again, because Earl Woods, for the first time, had been too sick to come to the course and root him on.”

    Hi there,

    My only child was abducted out of UK on pretext of visiting his mother’s family in India. He has not been allowed to see and meet his father. This was 5 years ago. Now he is asking about his father and all his mother and Nani does is keep silent or tell him shut up. I feel great pain of our separation. India does not sign International child abduction due to women like pardesi Sonia Gandhi, Renuka Chowdhery (disgruntled mother-in-law) and Grijia Vyas (Economic Fraud) and Indra Jai Singh (sex deprived femminist).
    Above all, Indian Legal System.
