In The Family…

Atharva Veda 3.30.02

The son follows

In his father’s steps

And is of a mind

His mother shares.

 

No idea how many arguments and controversies would be bounced off this Vedic advice. Or, is it just a statement of fact as it prevailed then ? I do not know. All I see is a cleverly stated cultural practice that keeps the father proud, mother happy, and the home in peace.
