The peace and progress of a family depend upon its members. If the members are good, the family gets prestige. Our family is a joint family. My father has two more brothers. He is the eldest. Both of his brothers are service holders. They are married. But they do not live in our village. One of them lives in Uttar Pradesh whiles the other in Calcutta with their respective family members. Thus my father stays in the native village and looks after the entire paternal property. Though theoretically a joint family, practically my father alone lives with us in our village. My grandmother is alive.
My father is a farmer. He is also an educated person. He was a village school master. But he gave up that job and adopted farming. He is respected by all. Our both the uncles send money every month to my father. We are five members such as father, mother, grandmother, me and my sister. I am the youngest member of our family. I am loved by all. My mother is a pious woman. She does all the domestic works in our family. As my grandmother is old, she is properly nursed by my parents. I am the most favorite of my grandmother.
My sister, who is two years senior to me, is a post graduate. After her post graduation, she is looking for a job. She is at present working as a teacher in the local high school. If she is selected, she may permanently work there. She is a good teacher. She is appreciated by all. My mother is worried about my sister’s marriage. But my father says that she will marry only after getting a permanent job. My sister also wants a regular job first.
I am reading in City College. I shall complete my graduation this year. I want to prepare for the civil service. My uncles, who are Central Government Officers, are inspiring me for this administrative line.
Our family is a happy family. My father is respected by all in our village as an ideal and truthful person. In case of any dispute in our village, my father is invited to solve it.
