Like Father, Like Son/daughter

As time goes by, though, your son gets older and your relationship changes. When your son/daughter begins to develop into a young man/woman, both of you face challenges that mean working a little bit harder to maintain your bond. The relationship you develop sets the course for a lifetime bond between you and your son/daughter.
1) Major Dhyan Chand and Ashok Kumar (Hockey)

Dhyan Chand was considered one of the best hockey players not only in India, but in the world. The 1936 Olympics in Berlin also saw Adolf Hitler request him to don the colours of Germany, which he refused.
However, most people forget his son Ashok Kumar’s contribution to the sport in India. Kumar scored the winning goal at the 1975 World Cup final against Pakistan in Kuala Lumpur. It still remains to be the last major tournament won by the Indian hockey national team.
2 ) Lala and Mohinder Amarnath (Cricket)

The father (Lala) is India’s first ever test match centurion and the son (Mohinder) was the man of the match at the 1983 Cricket World Cup final. Lala Amarnath was considered one of the best all-rounders of all time and both his sons Surinder and Mohinder would go on to represent India.
In fact, Surinder like his father scored a century on debut. This also made them the only father-son pair in the cricket history to do so. However, it was Mohinder, who would become India’s go-to man in difficult situations, in terms of both batting and bowling.
3) Vicky and Karun Chandhok (Motorsports)

Motorsports’ first ever Indian father-son duo came from the southern city of Chennai.
Karun is only the second Indian to represent India in Formula 1 during the Hispania Racing in 2010. The only other Indian to achieve that feat was Narain Karthikeyan. Vicky Chandhok is a multiple-time national rallying champions and is also the head of FMSCI (Federation of Motorsports and Council of India).

Phogat was awarded the Dronacharya Award by the Government of India in 2016. He is the father and coach of Geeta Phogat, who won India’s first gold medal in women’s wrestling in the 55 kg freestyle category at the 2010 Commonwealth Games, and the first Indian woman wrestler to have qualified for the Olympics, and Babita Kumari, who won a bronze medal at the 2012 World Wrestling Championships, and won the gold medal in the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
5) Ramanathan and Ramesh Krishnan (Tennis)

Ramanathan Krishnan was India’s first world-class tennis player. The high point of his career came when he reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon twice consecutively (1961 and 1962) and reached as high as world no.6 in Lance Tangay’s amateur rankings.
He was also the first Indian to win the boys singles title in Wimbledon. His son on the other hand, Ramesh Krishnan, won both Wimbledon and the French Open in his junior career. He also defeated world no. 1 Mats Wilander at the 1989 Australian Open.
With eight career titles, Junior Krishnan reached the highest ranking of 23 in January 1985.
Like father, like son/daughter – this is one of the most commonly used phrases when ascertaining the similarity of traits between father and son/daughter. It is only natural that a dad’s son inherits some of his abilities, it’s all in the genes after all.
