I am a learner and just want to know the basic concept of super().
Here in the given code I want to know the difference between the two child classes:
class Base(object): def __init__(self): print "Base created" class ChildOne(Base): def __init__(self): Base.__init__(self) class ChildTwo(Base): def __init__(self): super(ChildTwo, self).__init__() ChildOne() ChildTwo()
@Shubham, You can avoid referring to base class explicitly using super(). Multiple-inheritance is not possible without using super().
Python also changed its syntax in version 3.0 , super()._init_() and super(ChildTwo, self)._init_() both perform the same function but the later is a bit nicer.

In Python 3, we can call it like this:
class ChildB(Base): def __init__(self): super().__init__()
