ACTOR R. MADHAVAN ABOUT HIS SON VEDAANT MADHAVAN (when Vedaant was 3 years 6 moths old)

Bringing up Vedaant - I do not believe there's any formula for parenting. It is mostly by instinct.

Only a family and home can provide a child with a sense of security and constancy in a world where everything else is fluid and dynamic. Unlikely that I will have any say in who Vedaant has as friends in school or the associations he makes in his environment.

Celebrity kid - He will know and perhaps already knows that he's the child of a celebrity parent. But I don't want my celebrity status to affect and influence him. He should develop his individuality sans the attractions and temptations of my profession. Sarita and I want to inculcate in him middle class values and ideals that have stood us in good stead and kept us grounded.

Son goes to school- Much to my wife's disappointment, I certainly am not the kind of father who sets great store by percentages, marks and kids maxing their scores. For that matter, I do not even place too great an emphasis on academics. Our education system should bring out and nurture the creativity that is inherent in every child. Make a man out of him - No growing up the delicate, namby-pamby way for Vedaant. He's got to get out there and learn it the hard way. He was dunked into the swimming pool when he was just two, and now at three-and-a-half, he's a very fine swimmer.

Like father like son - Like grandfather like son is more like it! It's uncanny how much they have in common. But yes, he has my wife's eyes and my smile.

Big Wish - If I could, I would like him to study in Jamshedpur, where I did my schooling. I want him to go to a school where children are not identified on the basis of what their parents do, the cars they own, or the places they holiday at.

Carrot or stick- I am completely against any type of punitive action in the name of disciplining. On occasions that I might need to pull him up, it will be something like facing the wall or time out.

Fatherhood - It has completely changed me. I have become more responsible than ever before. I am very careful with my speech and choice of words. It's also made me this home bird. I wish I could be with him through all his waking hours.

Mother or father - Parenting, I am convinced, is a joint effort where both the mother and father play very crucial, if sometimes, different roles. The father's role must not be downplayed or undermined.

Indulgent - I used to come back laden with gifts for Vedaant from my sojourns abroad. But then I realised I don't want to be this Santa Claus figure bribing him with gifts in an effort to deal with my guilt of long absences. So, now I have cut back on it.

In some time - I can't wait for Vedaant to grow up a little more so that he and I can have a ball. I look forward to flying kites with him, catching tadpoles in the gutter and doing all the fun father-son things. Vedaant shares my passion for animals and he's turning out to be quite the involved animal lover. Now, I am teaching Sarita to play golf, so that she doesn't feel left out when Vedaant and I get into it!

Baby's day out with father - Oh, it will be super fun and madness. I'll have to suspend everything else for the day. No going to the loo or the bath. I will do whatever makes him happy. Are you talking about a whole day???

When father and son gang up - From the look of it, more often than not, it will be the mother and son ganging up against me. I will be the minority who'll have to do their bidding.

Son must have what you didn't - I always wanted to learn a musical instrument and perfect it, but never did get that chance. I most definitely want Vedaant to master at least one musical instrument. Apart from that, I was very good at sports in school and college, but never did get any kind of professional coaching. Where Vedaant is concerned, I'll walk to the end of the earth to ensure that he gets all the expertise that is available.

Friend or father – FRIEND! No question about it. This friend emerges from the father.
