Well-known actor Rahul Dev has shared his thoughts on how he feels to raise a child alone after his wife Rina’s death. Actually, the actor’s wife passed away in 2009 after battling cancer. Sharing about his difficulties since then, the actor disclosed that parenting is not an easy task.
In a media chat, the actor emphasized that he tried to be both a mother and father to his son, but there used to be times when he would lose his temper. Rahul also went ahead to share about his son's parent-teacher meetings in schools and specifically stated that he used to feel insecure seeing other children's mothers attending the meeting. Being an actor professionally, Rahul pointed out that being widowed is not as easy as it's shown in the movies.
Furthermore, Rahul Dev revealed, "Parenting is not easy at all. Women have a big hand in raising children, the way they understand children, probably because it comes out of them. The kind of patience they have for children, I tried a lot, but there were times when I would lose my cool, my frame of mind. I had to try to be both mom and dad. When I would go to parent-teacher meetings at school, I would see mostly mothers. Rarely I would meet one guy but his wife would be there. At that time, I would feel a sense of deep insecurity. I would feel where are the men."
Film Champion's actor further revealed, "It's very painful. A lot of it I don't want to remember. A lot of it I would not wish on anyone, that kind of situation. It looks easy in films, so many times films show that someone became a widower. But starting again is not easy at all."
