'... his enthusiasm and optimism in life is contagious.'
A "chettai" chooses his family as his career, with the goals of getting his sisters married, brothers educated and parents recuperated. With so much going on, he may not even have had the time to finish his basic education. He is the epitome of selfless love that keeps people in his family coming back to him and thereby making him the chettai of the family.
The chettai theme attracts people since he understands their feelings, their goals and their fears. He nurtures them by making them confident about themselves, mentors them by influencing them with his experience & knowledge and helps them grow and flourish using their own talent and skill. The family keeps coming back to chettai because their worlds look better, as his enthusiasm and optimism in life is contagious. He would lighten your damp spirit, celebrate every achievement and try to make things more interesting.
Stretch the circle wider is a philosophy around which a chettai orients his life. He is an instinctively accepting person who accommodates people, their needs, gives them a patient hearing and then tries to take the best decisions possible for them.
He defies challenges with his head held high, treads paths that are usually not taken and makes his own way. His unflinching and never-say-die attitude is what sees him through diverse challenges.
