Patient was born in Bombay, educated in a vernacular medium school. Patient
wanted to go in for Engineering (Aeronautics) but his father forced him to
take up Commerce. Patient appeared for 2-3 exams and then left college.
He was forced to join his father's business though he had made his
opposition to it very clear.
Father was a self-made man, but very weak emotionally. Mother was suffering
from paralysis since 14 years. She expired few years ago which was a great
loss to the patient.
Elder brother was stupid and childish in behaviour.
He was treated badly by his in-laws and patient regards his brother
lucky to have expired.
Due to some disputes patient separated from his sister. His sister's
behaviour shocked him. He had to give his house and offices to them and was
in great tension. Now patient has no emotions left for his relatives to the
extent that even if one of them dies before him he would not care.
Relations with wife (love marriage) and his in-laws are good.
