In fact, if the author 's suggestion can be implemented, we will see a big revolution. For example, at Nanganallur, a posh area of Chennai, two ladies, that is a daughter aged 73 and her mother who is 99 still survive by running a small catering establishment. The story was on YouTube. A Good Samaritan from the USA gave them an amount of two lakh rupees and requested the contact person to not let his name be mentioned in any way. Small contributions started pouring in.
Today, the two ladies have rented a small shop where their previous mobile catering shop has moved into. The taste of the food is so good that people come back in hundreds. Yes. The author' s suggestion can and should work, even in the society.
The extended family concept is very good. If we read the Stroy of Rama, we will understand the importance of family values. Rama has to go to the forest. But why Lakshman also accompanied him? Bharata got a kingdom. But he kept the chappals of Rama on the king's seat. Why? The wife of Lakshmana, Urmila had no complaints against her husband. If we can really understand the value they have given for an extended family concept, we all will definitely appreciate the same and try to follow I think.
It is not that such a culture is not existing in our country. If we are genuinely interested to know how their own relatives and brothers are coming forward to extend their help to their less privileged brothers especially in Punjab and Rajsthan. This enhances the mutual trust and confidence of the deprived section. If such a culture is followed within the different regions in our country, we would progress rapidly in terms of financial prosperity.
