“When there is no light, the family will guide you home, and when you feel alone, there is a family to call your own.” A family holds an important place in everyone’s life, and in our fast-paced life, we all love and enjoy family time. Every year, International Family Day is celebrated on May 15th as a symbol of bond, love, and strength. On this special day, &TV artists talk about their families and the bond they share. These include Rohitashv Gour (Manmohan Tiwari of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai), Farhana Fatema (Shanti Mishra of Aur Bhai Kya Chal Raha Hai), Ashish Kadian (Indresh of Santoshi Maa SunayeVratKathayein), and Kamna Pathak (Rajesh of Happu Ki Ultan Paltan).
Rohitashv Gour, aka Manmohan Tiwari of Bhabiji Ghar Par Hai, shares, “My Family is everything to me! Everything that I am today, and I have is because of my family. Their love and support have been my biggest strength and courage. I do not think that we need a dedicated day to appreciate our families. Every day with them is special in its unique way! We play, learn, grow together. There is never a dull moment with them. Having someone to love and support you unconditionally despite your shortcoming is what makes a Family. We need our family’s support to face and sail through these difficult times together. On International Day of Families, my only wish for everyone is to stay safe, stay healthy and be together.” Farhana Fatema, aka Shanti Mishra from Aur Bhai Kya Chal Raha Hai, shares, “My family is my rock! And I am blessed to have such a loving family. After a hectic day, we all find comfort in our family. Home is where the heart is! It is the family that loves and support one another in the most testing times. There is no greater happiness than having a family. On International Family Day, I wish lots of love, joy, and good health to everyone. Stay strong and stay healthy!” Ashish Kadian, aka Indresh from Santoshi Maa SunayeVratKathayein, shares, “Currently I am in Silvasa shooting for my show, and I am missing my family a lot. Family always comes first and is everything to me. In these challenging times, we all are constantly worried about our family and their well-being. Family day is a reminder that we should appreciate what we have and always stay connected with them, no matter our busy schedule. I have found an extended family here in the Santoshi Maa SunayeVratKathayein team. We care and always look for each other. It is a home away from home for me.” Kamna Pathak, aka Rajesh of Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, shares, “There is a popular saying, ‘In times of test, family is best.’ It stands true in the current situation. My family is my backbone. Their love, support and encouragement are what keeps me going. I wish everyone a happy family day. Stay safe and stay healthy. Count your blessings and cherish every small moment spent with your family.”
