“Tell Dad You Love Him. Tell Him Today.”, Virat Kohli writes an emotional letter to “Chiku”

In an emotional gesture on his birthday, the Indian captain Virat Kohli has written a letter to his 15-year old self explaining how to deal with life.

Kohli is basically talking to himself in that letter and telling himself why he didn’t get certain things when he was a teenager. With the letter, Virat is also trying to send a message to all the teenagers around the country.

Kohli compares “what he didn’t get” to “what he got” as a teenager and comes to the conclusion that the latter was far more precious than the former.

Remembering his dad, Kohli writes to Chiku, “I know you’re thinking (about) those shoe dad did not gift you. They mean nothing when compared to the hug he gave you this morning or the joke he cracked about your height. Cherish this.”

On kids’ relationships with their parents, Kohli writes that sometimes the kids think their parents are not willing to listen to them and get upset about it.

But, the kids should always understand if there is anyone in this world who loves them unconditionally, it’s their parents and nobody else.

Kohli insists that the kids should never shy away from telling their parents how much they love them because time flies.

“Tell Dad you love him. A lot. Tell him today. Tell him tomorrow. Tell him more often.” Kohli writes.

In the end, Kohli touches on the topic of fitness as well and talks about “Parathas”. Kohli writes that the parathas can be enjoyed later in life, but when you are at that stage of life where life demands fitness, parathas should be kept aside.

Virat Kohli was a big fan of parathas himself when he was playing cricket at the junior level, but as he understood the importance of fitness as an athlete, he brought massive changes to his diet.
