The sociological imagination theory influences individuals to link their life experience with the whole society on such basis as social, political, and economic forces. Mills elaborated the sociological imagination concept and came up with a conclusion that an individual's personal life can be well understood only if it is linked with the record of events as of the society. Sociological imagination has impacted my life since the time I was born in the year 1995. I grew up under the control of my parents, who had a lot of impact on my behavioral characteristics and my perception towards different aspects of life. I was taught several
2virtues, including honesty, respect, fairness, justice, and socialization. My parents were quite educated, and so they valued not only education but quality education. My father being the manager at the bank of Baroda, and my mother, an entrepreneur with an established retail business, I positively diverted my attention towards better living.Coming from a working-class family was assumed that, one had to attend a private school and a university as well, to hold social status in the society. My parents always wanted the best for me, and so they enrolled me in a private school in the county. This made me differentfrom my age mates since I gained quality and standard education. I knew I was able to achieve the best in the academic field since, apart from believing in my capabilities, my parents, too thought I could do excellent and invested in my education. Being in a private school meant paying certain amounted of fees which many people from low class could not afford to sacrifice for knowledge. My success was molded by my family and the community where I was born since they valued much on education.
