I am sharing my answer here and would love to hear it from all too (if you are comfortable)Honestly speaking I am not influenced by one single or 1-2 individuals. It has been collective. I have been influenced to certain extent by my parents, friends, cousins, teachers, bosses...people we meet...I am not in a position to sieve out one person who changed my life or my way of thinking...to a certain extent both my grandmothers played big role forming my initial ideas though...Perhaps when I visit this page next year - who knows I may have a person who might have influenced me then? :)
Good ans Madhavi, This makes us think that its true.. our admiration goes on changing or you can say increasing for different people and so life is a learning process , you admire and also learn.
Yes I agree with you Reshma Bhabhi.....it is all about Perceptions!
OMG, to name two persons is difficult - during your journey you meet so many persons - or read about them that you end up admiring a lot of people. Many a times you don't admire the person in totality but you admire a few qualities about him.I admire one lady Mrs. Chawathe who lived in our society - have been watching her since childhood - highly educated - was a professor in Maths - teaching the Phd students at Kalina University - managed her house, job and family very well. Bought up her both children perfectly well - The climax was when her son married his boyfriend she faced the situation very optimistically. (it must have been actually so shocking to any mom!)There are so many more - strong women - but why do I have to look outside - I admire all I mean absolutely all of you.
Just a point worth mentioning in the earlier note - Mrs. Chawathes son was very brilliant - rather extra ordinarily brilliant in academics as well as circular activities. And was so humble - younger to me may be by 8-9 yrs. (Just wondering - did the US spoil him?)
This is a difficult question to answer. Maybe its best to skip this time....as said my Madhavi....might find a answer in few years.
