BAAT KIJIYE SAATH DIJIYE

Unreasonable expectations from our children only result in creating a divide in the relationship and generates emotional distress.

Keeping an open dialogue is essential in understanding their viewpoint . Don’t shut them out. Talk to them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

अपने बच्चों से अनुचित, अत्याधिक और अनावश्यक अपेक्षाएं अक्सर माँ-बाप और बच्चों के रिश्तों में दूरियां पैदा कर देतीं हैं, जो सभी के लिए दुखद और कष्टदायी होता है। 

यह ज़रूरी है की परिवार में सभी अपनी बात खुल कर, बिना किसी डर और झिझक के रख सकें। तभी एक दूसरे की भावनाओं, दृष्टिकोण, और विचारों को समझ पाएंगे और उनका सम्मान कर सकेंगे।

An Interactive Session with visiting German Journalists

The Media Ambassadors India – Germany, is a program funded by the Robert Bosch Foundation and is run in cooperation with the Center for Media Competence at the University of Tübingen.

As part of their fellowship program, German journalists visiting India had an interactive session with the DHANAK team.

The visitors were keen on understanding the delicate societal structure in India, and inter-religious marriages.

They were inquisitive about the different types of marriages, challenges of the Special Marriage Act, Inter-religious marriages, and the role of religion in marriages. They also shared the challenges of Inter-faith marriages in their country.
