My Complicated Father

Would-be engineer, commercial artist, heart breaker

(L. to R.) Younger brother H.J. almost 5 Years old with my father August 1962. Photograph by Aikya Param

With his six-foot-three-inch height, gentlemanlike
Manner and nearly perfect crewcut, he was
A ladies’ man, never at a loss
For romance, and my mom’s rant and rage.
He saw himself a perfect look-alike
For Gregory Peck and minus his receding
Dimpled chin, he almost fit the bill.
