Here is my translation of the essay:- "I am not an up-to-par father. Ever since my child turned twelve, I have been roaming everywhere in the country. I can only afford to spend a little more than a month in total at home each year. No doubt there is no lack of modern communication tools that I can use. But what we can say to each other over the phone are no more than a few words of greetings. The kid does not have a lot to tell me, and he shows no interest in what I try to say to him. The whole conversation would just turn banal. I cannot but admit that my passion in fatherhood seems to be dwindling fast.
