Every proud parent says this about their son (very rarely – daughters!). And it gets my head reeling. Who is a self-made man?
You spend your life slogging hard so that your child goes to a good school, gets into a famous coaching class, and then gets into college of his/her/your choice. The child’s entire life is supported by his parents. And I am not talking about only moral support here. The tuition fees, books, clothes, hobby classes, coaching classes,trips, tours, recommendations, referrals – everything planned out and taken care of. Of course, it is the child who actually studies and crosses all the milestones – but assisted by his/her parents.
How is he/she a self-made person?
