We'd asked you, dear readers, to tell us about your father's best advice to you.
Rediff reader Prashant Panwalkar from Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh shares his story.
I used to be an academically bright student.
But after every exam, my father would ask me, 'pass ho jayega na?' (You will clear this exam, won't you?).
As a child, I could never understand why he said that.
Later on, when I grew up, I realised how important it is to clear every exam in life.
I have a son and daughter.
I teach my children the same lesson my father taught me.
What is the best piece of advice your father ever gave you?
It could be an inspiring quote, a life lesson or an incident from his own life.
Share your father's best advice with us.
Write to email@example.com (subject: Dad's Best Advice) along with your NAME, AGE, LOCATION and a photograph of your father and you.
We'll publish the best responses right here on Rediff.com.
