1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below: 

In India, the joint family system has been in existence since ancient times. However, with the passage of time, the joint family system has disin-tegrated, giving rise to the nuclear family system. A joint family is considered bigger compared to a nuclear family because a joint amily includes grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, and in-laws, aside from the typical mother, father, and children. Nuclear families normally con- sist of two parents and the number of children. When you ask older people, many prefer the joint family, as grandparents help the parents take care of the children. The need to employ a babysitter or nanny to look after the little ories when the parents are working is not necessary in joint families. On the other hand, there are many who prefer a nuclear family. One of the reasons that a nuclear family is ideal to them is because there are less issues happening within the household compared to a joint one which has many personalities that one would need to get along with. A nuclear family has many advantages. In a nuclear family, the mother is able to look after the needs of her children well. She can take care of their personal needs in a much better way than she could in a joint family. The family ears, spends and saves money for itself. Parents can invest money for the education of their children. They can put them into good schools and provide them with better career opportunities. They can understand one an- other well. Joint family systems cannot ensure that children would get indi- vidual attention. The womenfolk never find time to look after their children for they remain busy in the household work. Children are not educated much as they usually join the family occupation. The womenfolk face many restric- tions and the chances of disharmony are higher because of the size of the family.A nuclear family has its disadvantages too. Due to the high cost of living in cities, both the parents pursue a career of their own. This may leave the children unguided. They find no one for advice or discussion. They spend their childhood without the much needed love and company of their parents Infants spend their time in crèches. Overcrowded, poorly ventilated build- ings and apathetic staff of the crèches have a negative influence on the well- being of children.

The media is somewhat responsible for the disintegration of the joint family system. It often portrays the mother-in-law as a threat to the well- being of the young bride. In some movies, she is shown to influence her son against the young bride. Many of the serials in television portray the nega tive aspect of elders. Newspapers also report about gruesome acts commit- led in some families. The foreign media has instilled western liberal views in the youth. All these factors curb the development of the family as a close

knit unit. 

However, the advantages of the joint family system outweigh the disad- vantages. In the cycle of life, one will certainly reach old age and one will face the same problems as one’s parents or grandparents. So, the elders should not be deprived of the love and care of their near and dear ones. But again, it is upto the younger generation to decide.
