what is family ?

Filed under: Social issue — ratnakarmishra @ 4:11 am

Families in Ramayana and Mahabharata , significently , are not defined by blood .Ram and Laxman are half-brother ,with a common father but different mothers . Of the five Pandava brothers,three have a common mother , and non have a common father .Krishna is raised by foster parents, and even his brother Balabhadra’s is actually his half brother .What defines a family then is not blood or low or custom ,but trust .In a family governed by trust ,there are no rules;only love defines all actions, as in the Bhagavata .In a family with no trust ,rule have no role;only power defines all actions,as in Mahabharata.In between ,stands and Ramayana ,where there is love but also rules.
