A mentor is someone who mentored you the finer aspect of life, someone who encourages you to share your skills & talents wisely & motivate you to value truth above approval. Mentorship is a bond between an experienced & knowledgeable person and a less experienced or less knowledgeable person. A mentor may be an older or younger then the person being mentored but must have a good command on the subject knowledge. Mentorship should be a unwritten deed between two who wants to guide & someone who wants to learn. A mentor can be a support psychologically; can give good carrier guidance if he becomes a idol for a person who is receiving mentorship.
A person who is receiving mentorship known as apprentice or trainee & a mentor referred as a godfather or a godmother. A teacher, father, mother any one can be a good mentor for you because as they always try to guide you in your whole life.
