Joint Family System.

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.

Divine corner:

Story of the holy desert fathers(Abba Moses) of 4th century

Egypt, Syria and Asia Minor.

Once, a brother committed a fault. A council was called

to which the old and respected Abba Moses refused to go.

A priest sent someone to him, saying, ”Come, everyone is

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.

Diary:It is not enough if one becomes a learned person.

S/he  should be intelligent also.In a movie, named ”Anaadi”

(=ignorant) the hero enters a restaurant and orders for a meal.

When he started eating, he found a dead cockroach in his plate

and began to scream, ”cockroach! cockroach!”  On seeing

him holdig the cockroach in his hand, all those assembled

there, started vomiting.The manager of the restaurant became

angry and scolded him saying that because of his bad manners

he suffered losses in business.He drives him out of the restaurant.

The hero realised his mistake and expresses his feelings in this

song, ”I learnt everything except intelligence. People are justified

in calling me Anaadi/ignorant.” And in another movie, named

”Sangam”(union) the wife of the hero makes fun of her ignorant

husband in this song, ”When all the men carry home flowers to please

their wives, my old man brings for me cauliflower.” We should be

intelligent enough to understand the ocassion and act with

intelligence.

Diary:Many of my relatives took advantage of  Preventive

Health  Check-up Programmes and some of them  detected

symptoms of diseases and health disorders early and got

timely  treatment before matters get out of hand. Old age

gives rise to health complaints, fear of neglect and feelings

of insecurity. To avoid lifelong dependency on others, to protect

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

—-Vani Hegde.

Angels in Disguise.

Doctors diagnose  and cure the diseases but in fact,

it is the nurses who help the patients to recover from

illness by administering the prescribed  drugs at proper

time accurately. They are affectionate like mothers and

caring as children towards their parents. Their smiling faces

with kind words, work wonder  like smearing of  balm on pains

of suffering patients.Mother Theresa, Florence Nightingale are

the personification of affection, who served  the sick and the helpless.

Nursing is really a noble profession. Nurses are  devoted to the service

of humanity. And I prefer to call them ”Angels in Disguise”.

Vani Hegde.
