Father's Day 2022: Fathers always play a special role in the life of a child. Superhero, guide, friend or role model, a father stands by their kids through all difficulties and helps them sail through. To recognise the special role of the male parent in a child’s life and acknowledge fatherhood and male parenting, Father’s Day is celebrated every year on the third week of June. This year, it falls on June 19 It is believed that the day was started by an American woman Sonora Smart Dodd was born in Sebastian County, Arkansas in 1882, and her mother died when she was only 16. It was Dodd’s father, William Smart, who raised her and five brothers after their mother died.
Dodd was bothered that there was no day to honour her civil war veteran father who raised her and five younger brothers alone. Dodd wanted the celebration to be held on June 5, her father’s birthday, but the celebration was later pushed to Sunday, June 19, 1910.
