Why don't cousins not even talk freely to each other?Not so long ago, I would witness huge fun, jokes and what have you, in weddings and other social functions between cousins and their children who would jell well with children of more or less their age,
Are we now seeing an end of this era? At weddings, social functions, and even temple functions, one gets to see not much of all that I used to see. The times are tough and people are in different places. Yet, can't even what's up messages be exchanged and a lot more of bonding put in place? One does not see it happen.
What is really going on? Is money is the only thing that we all run after? And if yes, is that the cause for all that is not well in our families? How do we reverse the unhealthy trend, seen in many families?
Of course, in certain pockets like the town called Pollachi near Coimbatore, I have seen the bonding superbly intact and even growing. I have even mentioned about this in one of my articles in ISC.
But the worry remains. What can be done, really?
