According to Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, “A smoke in times of rest is a great companion to the solitary soldier.”

Father’s Day is a special day and I feel it is necessary to make certain gestures to make our parents happy specially on such occasions, even though we don’t need a reason or a day to celebrate our bonds and relationships with our loved ones. Last Father’s Day my brother who stays abroad happened to visit India and since he knows our father’s love for cigars, he bought some exquisite Cuban cigars and threw some light on the history of the same.

 

The word cigar originated from the Spanish cigarro, which in turn probably derives from the Mayan sicar (“to smoke rolled tobacco leaves” – from si’c, “tobacco”).
The expression“close but no cigar” comes from the practice of giving cigars as prizes in games involving good aim at fairgrounds.

Sicars cigars were sold at an auction for $507,000. They were discovered by archeologists from Tampa University while excavating sites around Guatemala. Even though these cigars are around 600 years old, they were so well preserved that you can actually smoke them.
Though properly storing is not a bad idea.

The UK magazine The Spectatorinaugurated an international Cigar Smoker of the Year Award.In 2014, Arnold Schwarzeneggerbecame the second winner and Jonathan Ross won in 2015.
Cigars are usually associated with wealth and luxury. Many cigar aficionados are of the opinion that not all cigars are alike. Each and every cigar has its own character. Whatever it is but a gift of love from child to a father is always an expensive one emotionally for both.
