National Family Day 2023: From date to significance, here is all that you need to know about the special day.

National Family Day 2023: Family is the basic unit of our lives that we base our lives on. We are born to parents, siblings, grandparents and we receive a lot of love, care and affection from them. We are taught the values of life, the skills required to navigate through life and the beliefs that will make us a better version of ourselves, by the family we are born to. But there is a different set of family as well – the chosen family. It is comprised of friends and people whom we choose to consider as our own family. Family and the people we love form the basis of our existence. They are the ones we go to when we need advice, or support. They are also our biggest cheerleader and the ones who wish for our best.
