I don't have what I can call a role model ,but definitely there are people who inspire me.If I start naming them ,then I might be blamed of my response lacking quality,lol.As if that is going to stop me :-P To me ,some of the people who justify being role models are Mother Teresa,Bhagat Singh,S.C.Bose,Amartya Sen,Narayan Murthy,Kiran Bedi,Preity Zintha,Helen Clark(Prime minister of Newzealand).I should stop because the list can run pretty long.Oh Preity because she stands up for social causes without waiting for any support and she is Bold and Helen because she is too brave and adventurous even at 57.She is a perfect example that age can't defeat us if we don't let it.The rest you already know.This post will be haunting me today,lol.Sorry for any typos,because I had a few in your other two discussions :-P.

A.P.J.Abdul Kalam,Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams are the three people whose qualities I would like to have. Nope.No need to get hainted.You are much better than me.Lol :)

Yes,I knew about APJ :) But I didn't want to bank on what I already knew ,lol.Yes, definitely Sunita Williams and Kalpana Chawla will have to go in that list.I actually watched Helen clark on discovery rafting on four 'inch' thin water,mountaineering at night,walking and sliding through very low caves and finishing with skiing ,all to be a nice host to a British journalist and perhaps to promote tourism to her country. lol,yeah I do that too often,especially when I am tired or excited.

Actually, it's kind of sad. I don't think I do anymore. I had role models when I was growing up, and I always ended up becoming disappointed by them. I have mentors, and people I may look up to, but no one I really consider a role model.

Hi friend as promised I am here just steal few minutes of my working to respond to some of my good friends that I missed for couple of weeks now. My role model is my late dad, aside from being a responsible father he had the traits of being a good leader and a magnificient bussinessman that I really adore. I continue what he left for us a family business and if we ever experieced rough roads in the business we just think of how great my dad was during his time to make the business stable.

I don't really think I have a particular person as my role model.every person who is better than me in any way,maybe even the slightest possible way, becomes a person whom I always respect and will always look upto. Though yes I remember,during my school farewell,in the question round I was asked who my role model was,and I had chimed in "Mother Teresa",and my school friends still call me mother teresa to tease me :P
