An individual is a unit of a family and a group of families is made up of society. The society will be the same as the foundation of the families. This is why it is said that the happiness of society comes through the way of families. Today is World Family Day. This day makes us aware of the importance of family. Today, families are disintegrating. People are starting to give more importance to themselves rather than being united, but living jointly as a family gives a different strength. Let’s know what is the story of the joint family of Nandini Sahu, a resident of Kalibadi.

The Sahu family, resident of Kalibari in the capital had broken a mountain of sorrow on the day when the father died. Aanchal of mother Nandini Sahu tied the family in such a way that the family of three brothers is living together with love and harmony. And is determined to live together for a lifetime.

Family member Pankaj Sahu said that we are a joint family of three brothers. There was a time when the family was torn down after the death of the father, but his values and love of the mother did not let the family disintegrate. After the father left, we saw many struggles of life. To improve the economic condition and to meet the needs of the family, the three brothers started the business of cotton and worked hard throughout the day to move forward.

Any problem or decision has to be taken. Together they all decide. Pankaj said that the words of everyone, big and small, are heard equal in the family. Family member Ashwini-Uma Sahu, Abhishek-Leena Sahu said that mutual harmony and love is the foundation of our unbreakable family, which will never break. Everyone who understands the importance of family in a separating society, with family becomes easier in their life. Our family is also happy and happy because we are together.

If we talk about the old era or on the basis of religious beliefs, then like before, families were disbanded like before. But the dissolution of the family has become common in modern society. In such a situation, International Family Day is celebrated due to the family not being broken. Staying in the middle of the family keeps you relaxed and happy.  Also, you are not a victim of loneliness or depression. Not only this, by staying with family, you are also untouched by many social evils. The main objective of International Family Day is to make the youth aware of the family so that the youth does not get away from their family.
