Dear Friends & Seniors....
Who is your Role Model ?
It could be from any industry, not necessarily a person whom you have not..... (pls keep Bollywood-Hollywood-and all such kind of woods out of this).
Why do you consider him your role model/mentor, what is so special about him ?
Lets find out what makes "THE PERSON" our Role Model....

Replying to my post, my Role Model is Mr. Narayan Moorthy Sir....
Never met him, just read and read about him.... newspapers, citehr articles, interviews on television.... He is just awesome and fabulous.
His way of thinking, his concept of taking up things, his sacrifices and his attitude "employees first" is just something that makes him so impressive.
The best is his Simplicity. If none of us knew him by face, and only by his name.... Nobody would ever realize looking at him that he is Mr. Narayan Moorthy....
I remember reading this "When he went for an interview, he was wearing a pair of slippers. The attendant asked him why are you wearing this footwear... You are supposed to be formally dressed. Look at the others around you who have come for an interview..... He replied : I know, Sir. But this is what I have. The day you pay me my first salary, I would be in formals....."
He was selected and paid in advance 50% of his salary.
That's Him....!!

The role models are our stars, who guides us to be someone, we would want to be, irrespective of our situation. As we grow, we develop our understanding and tend to find mentors closer to whom, we identify the most. It doesn't plug us from our existing role models, with whom we have been associating ourselves so far. We grow up, to move closer to our own identities.
Here's an article on the same thought. Who is your Hero <link updated to site home> ( Search On Cite | Search On Google ) I look forward to learn on what motivates others and their role models.

My Role model is not any single person. I admire different people in different stages of life.
So I am trying to be a role model for people.
but my all time role models are my parents. My Dad - who does a lot of hard work to build us and help us to reach in the current position where we are.
My mom who feed us to stay healthy & wealthy weather food, emotions, culture, attitude etc etc.

Hi Ashlesha,

First of all, must compliment you for the choice of question you have put forward through this forum. Its commendable :) (at least I felt so).

Given a chance, answer to this question is two folds. First of all if I have to look and think inside me, I feel both my Mom and Dad are my role models as I have learnt to be polite, humble, empathatic, understanding through them only. Had they not taught me the basic principles of life, I would not had been the way I am.

Looking to the external world, I feel I was deeply motivated by Ratanjibhai Tata. I have read the book of Mrs. Sudha Murthy and was deeply impreesed with the way Mr. Tata used to treat his employees and motivate them to face challenges and a Man who is open to listen to any new idea coming from a fresher like Sudha (The letter which Ms. Sudha wrote to Ratan bhai Tata for not selecting her in Tata group of companies just coz she was a female). Even today, people look upto getting associated with any of the Tata group of companies for stability, learning, for feeling of being at home kind of culture and of course its Values :)

My Role Model is anyone who is self motivated, thinks about others and his family, know his dignity and manage his family and team members with wellness and carefullness and most importantly think about those for whom generally no one thinks.

Thank you Ashlesha for initiating such a wonderful topic to be discussed. It's specially important for me as I was always confused about a role model.
What attitudes make a person to be role model for others depend how the person(follower)thinks or takes the issue. I find individuals having some unique great activities and at the same time few bad habits too, which allow me in dilemma to be choose the person as role model.
I hope this discussion will help me know more about it...

Dear Ashlesha and all other Cite HR friends

Replying to your post and sharing a very recent incident.

My daughter studying in 5th std has been given this topic “Role Model” from school. When she asked me what to write, I told her to think about who she is inspired by, just to give her a start. Then she asked her dad about the same. Later when I learnt that my husband made my daughter understand that her mother is the right role model for her. They had written a draft essay saying a lot about my nature of work, how I manage home and office although household responsibilities come first. I was surprised and wondered whether I am worth it. I want her to learn a lot from her dad. He is highly determined, patient and self motivated personality who never believes in short cuts. He has really worked hard to reach a position where he is now. While reading all these posts on Cite HR, I have realized that my parents are my role model who have taught me the best lessons for a true and successful life. They still inspire and encourage me to keep patience and not to give-up in any situation. Similarly it would be true for my children as well. I feel proud to say that we are the role models for our children.

With best regards

Well Said everybody....
As it is said, charity begins at home... we understand the real meaning of Role Model at home itself... Our Parents....
KRITISAMPAT, i know what you mean when you speak of Ratanji Tata.... I have also read the letter. it was posted on facebook.... as i read everybody's answers, it makes me feel that, oh yes, he is also a role model.. n how did i iss this person, he is also a role model..
ABIDUR REHMAN, a person can have multiple role models as different qualities come from different people. if we like a quality very much in a person but there is some area for dislike as well, he can still be a person from whom i can pick up the good quality he has.

MINI NAIR, i can sense the feeling it gives when we become a role model for others... my post specifies who are our role models.. other way round, you can given a good example of how we become a role model for others...
surely, it is like a sense of pride and goodness that feels within us. also, it get a sense of responsibility because considering others as a role model might be easier but being one is difficult. this is becuase we need to live up to being a role model.
all the best to you MINI....

Dear Friends,



I have taken up my present assignment with M/S Sri Chakra Cement Limited, Hyderabad in the year2008. At that time I was introduced to our consultant Sri M Narasimha Rao, aged about 77 years old, but hale, healthy and energetic.

Sri Narasumha Rao started his profession independently at the age of 42, when he had some differences with his the then Management, where he was working. Then decided not to work and started his career. Though the management wanted him to comeback, he simply refused and is now consultant to the same company.

Unfortunately lost his wife about six years ago. He has undergone cardiac bi-pass surgery. His three daughters staying with their husbands else where in India & USA. But he stays alone in his three bed room apartment.

He rarely asks or accepts help from others. He lives independently and does never like to depend on any body. He is always cheerful and asks us to be cheerful. He neither irritates nor be irritated. He is very simple and humble.

He is my role model.

yagniah k.
