This column is glad to welcome you to a wonderful and glorious year. In maintaining family values this year, this column believes quite frantically in imbibing the great art of sincere communication. This of course will steer us back from the dangerous paths we humans have treading since the maddening era began. Communication is the bedrock of a successful family life . These days, we are in too much hurry to achieve our goals and become persons of reckoning in the society; thereby relegating our family lives to the background. It should not be so at all! The family is the first layer of the society. It is the first link in the chains of human- societal engagement. Communication connotes listening, paying attention and considering the other person’s point of view. Modern man somehow believes that money is everything. Money has power of course to uplift and elevate the society . But there is a limit to what money can do. It has been found out in modern time that money does not promote happiness. More money has caused much havoc and problem to the owners and the society in general. We have seen rich individuals, top stars in great dilemma. The basic fabric of the society is woven around a stable home; not through drug abuse nor much money. A stable home is maintained through the mastery of the great art of communication. Communication is give and take. No more no less! See You There.
