8C HISTORY OF FATHER’S DAY : HISTORY OF FATHER’S DAY History of father's day : History of father's day Sonora Dodd, of Washington, first had the idea of a "father's day." She thought of the idea for father's day while listening to a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Slide 4: Sonora wanted a special day to honor her father, William Smart. Smart, who was a Civil War veteran, was widowed when his wife died while giving birth to their sixth child. Mr. Smart was left to raise the newborn and his other five children by himself on a rural farm in eastern Washington state. Slide 5: After Sonora became an adult she realized the selflessness her father had shown in raising his children as a single parent. It was her father that made all the parental sacrifices and was, in the eyes of his daughter, a courageous, selfless, and loving man. Sonora's father was born in June, so she chose to hold the first Father's Day celebration in Spokane, Washington on the 19th of June, 1910. Slide 6: President Calvin Coolidge, in 1924, supported the idea of a national Father's Day. Then in 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day. President Richard Nixon signed the law which finally made it permanent in 1972. FATHER’S DAY MYTHOLOGY : FATHER’S DAY MYTHOLOGY SHORT STORIES FROM RAMAYAN & MAHABHARATHA… : SHORT STORIES FROM RAMAYAN & MAHABHARATHA… HANUMAN : HANUMAN Hanuman learns from a star that he is fighting his own son, as seen on a mural detail at the Emerald Buddha Temple. Slide 10: Hanuman, in his eight-armed form, looks up from battling a fish-tailed enemy to see a small gold twinkling star above him in the dark sky. As he holds up his sword and trident in mid-air, the star reveals that the enemy he is about to harm is his own son by Ravana’s mermaid daughter. Hanuman’s mermaid son crawls near his feet, also looking up at the star.
Once the father and son hear the star’s news, they immediately recognize each other and stop fighting. KRISHNA : KRISHNA Krishna’s father carried him to his foster parents afraid that he will be killed. Slide 12: Afraid of a prophecy that predicted KRISHNA’S death at the hands of Devaki's eighth son, he had locked the couple into a prison cell, planning to kill all of Devaki's children at their birth. After killing the first six children, and Devaki's apparent miscarriage of the seventh, Krishna took birth. Since he believed Krishna's life was in danger, Krishna was secretly taken out of the prison cell, by his father , Vasudeva to be raised by his foster parents, Yasoda and Nanda in Gokul, Mahavana.
