Honesty, Pragmatism and Deep Understanding of Spirituality

Most of my knowledge of mythology and spirituality comes from my parents and grandparents. My parents played a central role in my life. They taught me that there was no substitute for hard work and honesty.

From my mother, I learnt the value of pragmatism. She also stressed on practising personal honesty in every action. “This,” she said, “is not only about morality, but also in your own selfish interest, in the long run.”
Now, my wife and I try to integrate our learning into our parenting. We ensure that our son is aware of our scriptures, prayers and philosophies. He is just seven years old, but already reads a lot. He finishes at least six to seven books a month, and I am very happy about that.
