India is located in the south of the Asian. It is the seventh-largest country by geographical area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populousdemocracy in the world. The Indian economy is the world's eleventh-largest by nominal GDP and third-largest by purchasing power parity (PPP). Following market-based economic reforms in 1991, India became one of the fastest-growing major economies; it is considered a newly industrialised country. However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty, illiteracy, corruption, and inadequate public healthcare.

In India, people learn the essential themes of cultural life within the bosom of a family. In most of the country, the basic units of society are the patrilineal family unit and wider kinship groupings. Large families tend to be flexible and well-suited to modern Indian life, especially for the 67 percent of Indians who are farmers or agricultural workers or work in related activities.
As in most primarily agricultural societies, few individuals can hope to achieve economic security without being part of a cooperating group of kinsmen. The joint family is also common in cities, where kinship ties can be crucial to obtaining scarce jobs or financial assistance.
Numerous prominent Indian families, such as the Tatas, Birlas, and Sarabhais, retain joint family arrangements even as they work together to control some of the country's largest financial empires.
Family life has its own advantages and disadvantages. If the parents-in-law don't get along with the daughter-in-law or if the daughter-in-law is not able to get along with her unmarried sisters-in-law, there are lots of emotional tensions and the man has to cope with it skillfully. Also, if there are two brothers, both married and living with their families under the same roof, there is the question of three families getting along - the parents-in-law and the families of the two sons. Usually, in a situation like this, the elder son and his wife are given more respect and importance and have more responsibilities to shoulder.
However, the main advantage of living life in this system is that the children get to learn a lot from their grandparents. Besides, if there are two brothers with their families living together, the cousins i.e. the children of the two brothers grow up together just as real siblings. The children grow up with a strong sense of security and stability.
The family system is given a lot of importance in India and has worked more often than not.
