But for most of us, the word ‘family’ carries much deeper significance. The family is where we learn the essential traits of human coexistence – caring, loving, sharing. It is a place where we develop and also open up all the facets of our personality, and share all experiences of our lives, joyful or otherwise. Our families provide us support in most difficult situations of life and joyously celebrate our victories and achievements. Get-togethers of extended families, for picnics or for family functions, are occasions that are loaded with merriment and memories. Isn’t it time that we recognize the significance of our family in our lives especially in this modern age of chaos and strife.
