A Person In My Life Who Is #madeofgreat

It was then; when I was studying in class one. I was going to Puri in Orisha, for summer holidays with my family. We were waiting for the train at the Howrah station. My father brought some oranges for us, I eat the oranges and threw the pills on the platform; whereas some foreigners eat the same and store the pill on a packet and after eating, they put the packet inside a dustbin. A person watched all these and he said to me, ‘beta, look at them! If you go to their country, you can see cleanliness everywhere; because they each and every people are so much aware of it. We can see ugliness here and there in our country; because we, the people of India are not aware or care of it! Make a habit of cleanliness, not only at your home but also in public place.’ Then the person collected all the pills of oranges from the platform and put them to dustbin. That day and this day; I never forget the lesson and always try to keep clean my nation, my earth! The person is my father – just #madeofgreat! 

“The most important influence in my childhood was my father.” - DeForest Kelley

At the age of eight, one day, I was playing in garden. Suddenly, in the road, I saw a cow and without any reason I ran to beat her with a stick! My father was watching me, he said me, ‘why you want to beat the cow? Is she beat you? She is not able to speak, so can’t say anything; but the sin which you are going to do, beat you all your life!’ The lines shocked me, I went to home and think about it. I came to understand the words of my father and became an animal lover.

“I look at my father. He is one of my heroes. When I see all that he did, I think, 'Wow, that's a really wonderful man.” - Emmanuelle Chriqui

My father was an employee of Indian Railway. He was working in electric department. He was very good in his job; but was famous for his honesty. In his office, there were so many tube-lights, bulbs, wires placed here and there; if anybody want to take one bulb or tube-light to home, it was so easy! In fact, the stuffs of the department never buy any of their electric-needs from market. But, my father never grabbed anything from his workplace; not even a piece of wire! His colleagues were laughing at him; they always called him ‘fool’; but, now, when I’m at the age of them, I can understand that, they were laughing at my father to cover their guilt! Now, my father is retired, but in his office, he is very popular than his colleagues for stories of his honesty!

When I was studying in class VI, I was going with my father to buy a television. The retailer asked my father that how he wants to take bill. A registered stamped bill or local bill? My father asked for a registered bill. Then the retailer said that if my father takes local bill, then the price would be much less; but my father was very streaked in his decision! After returning home, I asked to my father that why he refused the proposal, as we can save some money. My father said, ‘If I took the local bill, it was unfaithful to the government and it was a kind of theft!’  That day, I taught another lesson of honesty from my father and it helps me my all life.

"It was my father who taught me to value myself. He told me that I was uncommonly beautiful and that I was the most precious thing in his life.” - Dawn French

My father never forces me to achieve the top! He always tries to teach ne good habits in simple ways. Since the first day of my education, he has been saying to me – ‘Be a good human being first, and then try to be a successful person’! He always teaches me to be polite and humble to others.  He always makes me feel like princes but never pampers by fulfilling my unethical wishes.  He never punished me in my childhood; but he made me able to point out right or wrong! He always says me to find the beauty in my heart. He says – ‘You are most beautiful and precious to me, because you are my daughter; be the same to others by the beauty in your heart.  Give respect sympathy and love to each and every creature of God, then you will be the most beautiful person in the World!” I always try to follow the words of my father; and when I get love from others; sometime, from an unknown person, in a railway station or in a tea stall; I think that, it’s all for that person, who not only a good human being; but also waved his goodness to his next generations and that’s why, I call him - #madeofgreat!

My Father and Me

“I know that I will never find my father in any other man who comes into my life, because it is a void in my life that can only be filled by him.” - Halle Berry

Question: What do you think of Tata Motors association with  Lionel Messi ?

The last date to comment and win is 24th Nov.2015, 11:59pm.


  1. Fathers are heroes indeed, and no-one can replace them!
    As regards Messi and Tata, I just have one thing to say, when 'Excellence' meets 'Durability', the only way is to go 'forward'!

  2. Absolutely is these small things taught in our childhood that have a lasting impact and your dad has inculcated those very habits!

    When a true 'striker' meets an automobile giant, the result is "firing from all cylinders"!!! That is the essence of Tata and Messi put together!

  3. Answer of the question is
    Tata Motors has earned the goodwill from giving the best and innovative Automobiles and it is also known as one the best Automobile Manufactures. And if you see the Lionel Messi , his throughout dedication, zeal , targeted goal of life and technically soundness make him big, achiever and remarkable position in the world.
    As per me, the association of Tata Motors and Messi is a grand amalgamation of two legendary entities of the world, and their amalgamation will definitely break down the clutters and affect the cut throat competition of Tata Motors. Tata motors will sure get a huge preference by the fans of Messi. This will sure make a record of Tata motors in the world of production or may be the highest selling automobiles.
    Tata motor’s main target is to give an impression on the large amount of crowd and this can be achieved only through the Messi, because the youth generation is crazy for MESSI and this can be smart move and a great achievement for Tata Motors they positioned MESSI as their BRAND AMBASSADOR .
    In the nutshell, Tata Motors , Messi joining hands will definitely give more soundness in technicality of promotional strategies and Messi’s influence will influence the audience for choosing Tata Motors and expand the business drastically.

  4. Very touching post. Our parents are our true guidance for us.

    Coming to your question:

    Hard work, positive attitude and perseverance makes the one to reach high in their life. Without any wealthy family background, only with these best attitude, he raised up in the life. With these same attitude, Tata motors too gained valuable customers and reached the peak. So, collaboration of these 2 makes a successful pair. An youth icon representing a motor Icon. :-)


  5. Tata Motors' association with Lionel Messi spells a significantly notable alliance that will steer the company towards favourable benefits. I always acknowledge Tata Motors as a distinctive name in Auto industry, which will not let the success 'larger-than life' elude from its fate now with a timeless guild with iconic figure Messi. I don't see this union of Tata Motors as an aspirational effort for garnering some quick publicity and evoke specific reaction from myriad crowd with Celeb branding, but is rightly an embellished handshake for keeping up the pace to get to the pinnacle of success graph. To sum things up, I am joyous to see the brand and the star uniting for 'One in a Million' power-packed drive ahead :)

  6. #MadeOfGreat...Messi and Tata Motors both have name on their own and when both legends collaborate with each other, then there shall be mutual learning sharing of thoughts and caring for each other development and growth. Its a good sign that these two highly reputed people join hands with respect to improving the economic growth. Tata Motors stand for National integrity and good image for our nation and when they have brought in Messi to their premises it means the company will raise to international standards indicating what our beloved Prime Minister Modi is insisting upon--The personality growth along with the growth of one's nation! Messie is a sportsman and known for his self disciplined way of playing and and holds a good image as a family man.When the goodwill ambassador is a family man of superb family values then that is the prooff that Tata Motors has made a wonderful choice of their ambassador.With a wonderful man like Messie with the support of a reputed company like Tata Motors, Our nation will surely go a long way in promoting an excellent economic growth.,,( Sheerin.

  7. Nice post , Good to read that Honest people like your father still exist.
    answer to the question
    Tata Motors is a brand which is one of its kind , Trustworthy and innovative .
    Lionel Messi is a Legend and youth icon , a person who is extra ordinary talented ,energetic , confident & dedicated to his profession .
    So association of Tata motors and Lionel Messi is a Great Thing as both of them does not know tiredness and are committed to their brand value .This collaboration would definitely give an edge to Tata Groups over its competitors as the brand ambassador Messi hold the reputation of not letting down his fans as Tata motors has given the best to the world.

  8. This is a really well written post. It's so rare to find out that people like your father continue to make this world a better place. Hope you follow up his footsteps and become a pride to him. Kudos !!!

    My answer to your question: The person you choose to write about for #madeofgreat campaign is the perfect choice in my opinion. So is the association of Messi with Tata Motors, because both of them are committed to deliver 100 percent every single time. These two are behemoth brands which have dedicated themselves to perfection in their respective fields for years and years now.

    It is no coincidence that Messi himself drives a range rover which is a product of Tata Motors now. The brand has been known for its trustworthiness, simplicity, durability and reliability for decades now, A tie-up with legend like Messi whose commitment to his team and ability to deliver whatever is necessary every single time will take the value and goodwill which company has developed since 1945 to a whole new level of awesomeness. The fact that it took 16 months of efforts to get Messi in the driver's seat says a lot about how difficult it is to chase world's most gifted footballer. Hoping to see this association foster into a long term relationship.

    Messi reflects the Trust the soccer fans all around the world put on him while so does Tata Motors for the automobile enthusiasts across the country. Both of them have achieved feats unparalleled and have stood far apart from all their competitors, hope that this association turns out to be a value addition for both the sides. Cheers !!!!
