Was doing some self-reflective sessions in my yoga class at a ladies college. We were discussing what does it mean to be 'inspiring' for each one of us and giving examples of the same. Of the girls, 5 said they found their dads to be inspiring. 5 others said some other random person. Only 1 girl found her mom to be inspiring.

The general socio-economic profile is that of girls from upper middle class families were the dad has worked his way up the society. The mom for sure had to ensure lot of things fell in place at home but, as usual, did not get noted. This too when all the respondents were young women!
Poor old Nakulas - the healer amongst the pandavas who takes care of everything but never gets credit!
