Publish the assassin’s books- a shame and treacherous indeed!

Noble bond between families. If they are distant from each other,
Everybody gets together by pushing the pending work on the next day.

By tying a sacred thread- not just a piece of thread,-bond of love!
Every sister ties the sacred thread ‘Rakhi ‘on her brothers’ wrist !

To slow down and unwind! A day to take care of
Ourselves and take a moment to relax- we l need a break
From the fast-paced and hectic lifestyles we live and lead.

Bodies help prevent many health risks! Too much work
Can make us sick, run-down, tired and it is proved that stress
Is harmful to our health, both mentally and physically!
Finding ways to relax and finding ways and means carefully
To reduce stress will improve overall health. Let us relax!!!

Parents are deemed to be Gods in various countries-rightly so
India will say treat Mother, Father, Teacher, guests as Gods in that order
“Maathru Dhevo Bhava, Pithru Dhevo Bhava, Achaarya dhevo bhava
Athithi dhevo bhava”- America observes Parents Day on the
Fourth Sunday of July every year! Mother’s Day in May
Father’s Day in June and PARENTS DAY in July-quite appropriate!
National Parents’ Day honors all parents on the fourth Sunday in July.
We can bring all our parents together and show them all at once.
Parents play a vital role in the lives of children. From the day we are born,
Parents are our protectors, teachers, providers and role models.
As families, they are the core of our communities. On National Parents’ Day,
We honor all parents do every day to raise up their children in a world
that is constantly changing and challenging.
Family is the microcosmic rudimentary element that
Makes up the society structure. For this structure to remain firm,
The family unit needs to create a strong foundation.
This role is shouldered by responsible parents who do understand
Their imperative role in shaping their child’s life to grow up into
A responsible Citizen. At the same time, this day impresses upon
The younger generation that One day, they must also take on the serious
Responsibility of looking after the Needs of parents and older
Family members. No need for old age homes any longer!!!
