New Delhi :  

What is the most precious thing in one's life? It may vary from person to person but for parents, it's their children. Their unconditional love for children can make them do wonders. One such story shared by multimedia journalist GMB Akash is trending on social media now-a-days. Here's a father, who bought a new dress for his daughter after 2 years will bring tears in your eyes.

MD Kawsar Hossain lost his arm in a tragic accident 10 years ago. This incident forced him to beg (as he had no other option) to feed his family. Mr. Hossain shared his heart-wrenching story by saying "Ten years ago I had never thought in my nightmares that I have to live by begging from people," adding that his daughter Sumaiya feeds him every day “by saying she knows how difficult it is to do all work with one hand.” He further said that he feels ashamed when his daughter looks at him lending one hand to beg. "But she never leaves me alone," he added.

Mr. Hossain also shared the incident when he went to buy a dress for Sumaiya. "While I handed sixty pieces of five taka note to the seller, he yelled at me by asking if I am a beggar. My daughter held my hand and cried to leave the shop by saying that she did not want to buy any dress. I wept (sic) off her tears with one hand. Yes, I am a beggar," he said in the post. That's the day when he decided to buy a dress for his daughter.

After 2 years when he finally bought a new dress, he said, "After two years my daughter is wearing a new dress, that's why today I brought her with me to play for some time". But the thing that will melt your heart is his next statement. "Today this father is not a beggar. Today this father is a king and here is his princess," he said.

The father then borrowed a mobile phone from his neighbour to click some pictures of his princess. "When one day I will have a phone I will take a lot of pictures of my children,” he said. Shared on April 5, the post got over 45,000 reactions and has been shared by more than 11,000 Facebook users.
