The Real Family

Strong and effective family systems are essentially based on love and care, But somewhere, just like a stream starts out pure but gathers dirt and muck on its way downhill. Our family system too has gathered some rigid values.

These rigid values confine the human being to nothing more than a ROLE. Occasionally it also appears to be insensitive towards the individual. 
We brand and tag anyone who does not fit in to our desired social structure. Widows, childless couples, homosexuals, mediocre students.. the list is endless.

Most of us have been branded at some point in our lives, I fail to understand any construtive growth in these tagging systems. 

So what happens to our family system, what happens to our relationships in crisis?

When a child is born in a family or when a newly wed girl enters the house, we are enthralled, enthusiastic, positive and happy. 
en we discover something non conforming about the person, some unacceptable behaviour or some disease, where does our love our joy vanish ... ?
Its time that we come out of our roleplay and understand the real values of our beautiful culture which emphasises strong family ties, ensuring that no one feels LEFT OUT... no one sheds tears in loneliness... everyone has some shoulder to cry and lean on... and that too is just round the corner... within our FAMILY. 

Families being the basic unit of our society, healthy families pave the way for healthy society and loving human beings.
