Living in a joint family surely is a lesson in harmonious
living. You have a strong support system and help is
close at hand; it’s all about tolerating each other’s
differences and living with them in an amicable
manner; whether it’s giving up your own personal
wishes in the larger interest of your family or compromising
on issues that matter, living in a joint family is an incredible
learning experience. Children grow up to become a lot more
mature and understanding adults. The advantages of living
in a joint family more than off-sets the inconveniences, if any.
Life is about relationships-matrimonial, parental, sibling,
fraternal, friendly and even the one with strangers. It is faith
that sustains relationship and makes our life comfortable.

waiting you.” So he reluctantly got up to join them, carrying
on his shoulder a broken jug filled with water. The others
came out to meet him and seeing the dripping water, asked,
”What is this father?” The old man answered,”My sins run out
behind me and I do not see them. Yet today I come to judge the
errors of another.” Hearing this, they said no more to the brother
and forgave him.

your fitness and freedom, undergo health check-up without any delay.
