Who influenced you best in your character formation.Each one of us has grown watching others and knowingly or unknowingly our character has been developed through this process. Naturally, our father and mother are the two persons with whom we grow. Hence their contributions to our character formation must be more. In certain cases it would be father and in others mother. It will be interesting to look back and find out what are the characters we copied from our mothers and those from our fathers. Naturally we would have copied something from some others.
In my case father has contributed to a large extent. He was a person who could change the whole village where he was living. A completely undeveloped village where he started living with his family is now a developed area with road connectivity to other areas, a post office, a Higher Secondary School, a health centre, library, etc. are there. Father never tried to boost himself and did not like publicity. He seldom appeared in public. As a father he never tried to interfere in our daily routines. It was mother who looked into our routine things. At the same time father knew our needs and helped us through mother. Everybody respected him. His knowledge spread into different subjects. Literature, Ayurveda, astrology, mathematics, architecture, Homeopathy, politics, economics, etc. Basically he was educated up to the intermediate level. All these attracted me and copied several things from him. Because of that most of the assignments came to me without running after that. Even the present position I am holding came to me even without my knowledge.
