Lockdown has ended Family Distancing in India & we should be grateful

International Family Day:Nothing can beat the warmth of #FamJam 

May 15 marks the International Family Day. It was first celebrated in the year 1993. It is celebrated to understand the importance of loving & supporting family. Nothing can replace the joy of having a loving family in this world. Mother, Father, and Siblings, they make our world complete. It is a single word with different meanings and it holds special place in everyone’s heart. From standing together in difficult times to celebrating every small achievement, family remains constant, right?

Earlier, in India, we used have joint families. Today, the concept of joint family is a passe. More nuclear families and more distance between members. Luckily, the new decade has started off with the concept of lockdown and social distancing. Resulting that we all are locked in our homes with our near and dear ones.

Every coin has two sides so does COVID. The lockdown has ended the family distancing in India and we should be thankful.

We are together and it’s good old days 

We are having food together, doing dishes together, playing games, and striking meaningful conversations. Isn’t a good feeling? We are able to spend time with our parents, kids, and partner that we rarely used to get. After so long people are actually not on Phone, they are actually making effort to be more and more with their family. The lockdown period has given us a chance of coming closer.
