Hyperactive Bachelor Dad

Blurbs can be misleading. When I saw the book ‘Bachelor Dad’ by Tusshar Kapoor, one among the unsuccessful sons of Bollywood yesteryear stars, I became curious. Having a child through surrogacy has become prevalent in the Mumbai film world, but Tusshar's case is different. He still remains a bachelor; in fact, not even linked with any female star or person. Though I know he had become a single parent through surrogacy but seeing that he had authored a book on being a Bachelor Dad kindled my interest.

I could understand the problems of being a single parent and bringing up a child. That also, for a bachelor it will be all the more testing. But, alas, after running through this book, I understand only how the rich deal with their kids and that really made me wonder. Sending the kid to ‘some school’ even before one-year-old and the subsequent pampering by several activities for the kid in the name of knowledge/ creativity building sounded incredible to me. Those activities, to be honest, sounded more of a harassment than concern or care. Nothing but crap and once again shows how the rich are hyperactive in contrast to the poor’s gross indifference.

Anyways, I could make out one thing; since Tusshar Kapoor being absolutely jobless
