Talking about the mindset of people in India, we Indians always love to stay close to our people, our families with people we love. Also, India is a country of people belonging to various ethnic bonds. According to these bonds, people follow their religions. People in India are Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Jains, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, and other uncountable numbers of religions. People in India also celebrate more than 50 festivals a year depending on their beliefs. India has more than 12 famous styles of traditional clothing. There are 28 states and 8 union territories in India and almost every state has its traditional dances.
Having so many differences, there is one thing that proves all the people equal. Indian families always have a tradition to live in joint families. Joint families usually mean A family when lives together with all family members up to 2nd generation like grandparents, parents, uncle, aunts, and their children are called a joint family.
Well, it might look tricky but, many households in India still have more than about 30 people living under one roof. It might look funny but surely it is the best way of living.
In today’s generation where people are suffering separation anxieties and breakup pains and loneliness and less of love, and people are moving ahead to take the wrong steps, this kind of family is truly helpful.
Joint families have a great love with one another. They help each other and become the best part of the day in each other’s life.
Well basically they do all these activities which nuclear families usually miss out on:
1. They pray together.
2. They have breakfast together and decide on morning activities and also do a discussion on what’s going around the country and the world.
3. Children usually take a walk to school together. Children usually do their homework together and help each other with the same.
4. The mothers and the other adult women in the house divide the daily chores among each other and help each other with the work.
5. They help each other grow and flourish in the businesses also.
6. Children usually play together and share their secrets.
7. Children also get to a great love and ethics of life from their grandparents.
8. At nights, the whole family sit in the backyard and share all the old day memories, recite poems, play, sing, and have the happiest part of their day.
In short, they share so much time that they get to know each other a lot. Because of all these activities, the importance of sharing and caring is inculcated in children from the very beginning.
But, where the countries are developing, India is also getting urbanized. But people are surely getting desegregated from their big and loving joint families to small families. This might become a huge disadvantage in the future. We all must understand the importance of joint families above nuclear ones. Let’s get rejoined not only by roofs but also with heart.
