Hi readers! We are here again with another episode on different types of the family system in India. In this series, we are going to cover different family systems in India i.e., small family, big family, nuclear family, joint family etc. We have already covered two topics among the topics mentioned above and it has been seen by more than 1 lakh+ viewers. If you are interested to read those blogs, here I am sharing the links of those two blogs as well.

In this blog, we are going to discuss, what is a nuclear family? its advantages & disadvantages and what is our thought on the concept of the nuclear family.

These days, the concept of the nuclear family is more prevalent in society and now the families prefer the nuclear family over the joint family. The next question is “what is the meaning of nuclear family”, so according to sociology & anthropology, the simplest meaning of the nuclear family is the parents’ child relationship consists of an adult couple and their children. Through these couples are usually male & female but now the definition of the nuclear family further expanded and added same-sex marriage as well. The child of the nuclear family not only includes their socially recognized children but also via biological offspring or adopted by a couple.

Benefits of Nuclear Family

Here are the benefits of the nuclear family. 

> Financial Stability

Having a nuclear family reduces the family expenditure substantially giving more financial stability which further creates more opportunities. Such families can afford more expenses on child education, healthy food & lifestyle, etc. According to the survey conducted, 57% of nuclear families are above the poverty line, and in that case, they can enjoy much more in their life and can opt for a good lifestyle too. In addition to this, children can uprise in their career if they get quality education & required resources that help them to crack better opportunities.

> Harmony & peace

Keeping harmony & peace in the family or within the house is very essential. It helps in promoting the optimum environment for human potential to flourish in all situations be it personal, social & economic. Conflict can arise in any family at any time, but it is necessary to be solved at the earliest to maintain the healthiest atmosphere in the family. Fewer members in the family mean fewer chances of conflict, thereby fewer chances of disturbance.

> Is it give better opportunity for them to have a good lifestyle?

The obvious answer to this question is yes. The possibility to achieve financial freedom is more in the nuclear family in comparison to joint family thereby enabling them to expense more on their lifestyle, food, child education, extracurricular activities, vacation, health, etc.

> More time & space for Women

In nuclear families, females have more time & space to enjoy their life. They can enjoy their spare time post performing their household duties. As the number of members in the nuclear family is fewer requiring fewer tasks to do, means more free time.

Small Family Happy family

The concept of a small family works well in nuclear families. As the parents have to bear all the responsibilities & expenses of raising children enabling them to have one or two children maximum.

Disadvantages of Nuclear Family

Here are the disadvantages of the nuclear family. 

> No Helping Hands

As we discussed earlier a nuclear family means adults & their children only, so the adults have to take care of everything. They are responsible for the nurturing of the child plus jobs, and household work too. They do not have much personal time and sometimes, they also become annoyed and irritate with their daily life routine.

> Hire Maid to take care their child

The next disadvantage of having a nuclear family is when to hire a maid for taking care of the children or leave them in the church if both parents work. In such situations, parents cannot be sure whether the nurturing of their kids happening properly or not.

> Insecurity at the Old Age

There is always insecurity in the nuclear family. As the parents grow older, and as they have followed the nuclear family concept indirectly teaching their children to opt for a nuclear family as well. If the parents do not have a retirement amount, they have to face problems in their 2nd innings (old age).   

> Child Insecurity in the nuclear family

As in nuclear families, parents have to take care of everything, so in such cases, they both work to uplift the living standards and in doing so, they are unable to give attention to their children. Owing to this, a child starts feeling abandon, socially isolated & alone and unknowingly sometimes they also join the company of wrong people that leads them to the wrong path.  

> Economical Losses

If you are part of a joint family, then there are several breadwinners or helping hands in the family that support each other and by their collective efforts, the family income rises upwards. Division of joint family into the nuclear family leads to the property division followed by the increase in the expenditure such as they have to buy all the resources individually for their livelihood be it the fridge, washing machine, TV, and many more.

> Conflict Resolution Skills

Conflicts are the part of parcel of each family, and it is inevitable. You cannot stop them completely whether you stay in the joint family or the nuclear family. There is an advantage of having a nuclear family as the fewer members in the family leads to fewer chances of misunderstanding but at the same time, there is a disadvantage too. When you have a joint family, then different persons bring different opinions & ideas that help in solving conflicts which is not possible in the nuclear family.

> No Support in the emergency time

Life is full of ups & downs, and we cannot predict “what is going to happen next”? It seems perfect in the nuclear family if everything goes in the right direction but sometimes one obstacle breaks the foundation of the nuclear family and put them into crisis.  

> Nuclear Family Crisis

Another disadvantage of nuclear families is the increasing number of divorces which is less likely to happen in a joint family. The future of a child is in a great dilemma if divorce occurs in the nuclear family.

We have covered some stories on covid 19 and its impacts. The whole world has been severely hit by this pandemic & it is not ended yet. Check out the stories we have covered so far on this pandemic.

Here in this blog, we are going to see the role of Digital education in rural India.

Since 2020, the world has been suffering from covid-19 and yet we are not sure when it will be ended. Post 2nd wave, the 3rd wave is expected, and research is underway to understand what will happen post 3rd wave. The lifestyle of human beings has changed, and it has been impacted by covid adversely. The GDP of the whole world has shrunk, millions of job loss and death. Hardly is there any industry or individual which is not being impacted by this and the education industry among them.

Since last year, all the schools have been closed impacting child education. Thanks to digital education which helps in the continuation of education up to a certain extent but that is successful in the urban & metro cities. Can we think of the same success rate in rural area? There is hardly any reason to believe so. Imagine in an area where there is no ensured electricity supply, there are little or less modern mediums of communication, even families so financially distressed that they lack accessibility of food, Is digital education really a feasible option? Let us not forget that digital education needs decent internet coverage, a smartphone, and obviously enough electrical supply to operate these devices.


There have been signs of progress in some villages, but the data is not sufficient enough to say whether India can actually go ‘completely digital’ in order to provide education to the impoverished and underprivileged children in India.

A maximum of the financially distressed families is going to be further entrapped in the vicious poverty cycle, merely because in these critical times, the policymakers have failed to actually deliver education to their children. Read about KNOW ABOUT CORONAVIRUS AND ITS EFFECTS IN DETAIL


Effects during the pandemic

Rural education had been drastically affected due to the coronavirus outbreak in both waves. There are numerous children who stand devoid of education during these harsh times. The famous mid-day meal scheme also acted as a huge boost to admission rates in rural schools and children received meals along with education. This ensured that rural children won battles against two fronts- Hunger and Illiteracy. The pandemic, however, has reduced the delivery rate of mid-day meals as well. Another issue is the lack of digital education of teachers. Teachers, especially in rural and semi-urban areas, face difficulties in instructing and teaching through the online medium. They also face technical issues, which would rather have never subsisted, if not for the online mode of education. These little interruptions accumulate to ultimately become enormous hindrances, which further the accessibility divide between the urban and rural children. Read about WHY DID CHILD MARRIAGE INCREASE IN COVID-19?

Oxfam India, a non-governmental organization, surveyed 1158 parents and 488 teachers across five states- Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Odisha, and Uttar Pradesh. The survey findings yield the following facts.

✅ The survey displays 35% of children did not receive mid-day meals.

✅ 53% of children received dry rations and only 8% of children received cooked meals.

✅ 84% of teachers reported facing problems while teaching through digital mediums.

✅ Only 20% of teachers were given orientation and minimal training for delivering online lectures.

✅ 80% of teachers in Uttar Pradesh and 67% of teachers in Chhattisgarh lacked adequate devices for online classes.

✅ 75% of parents faced problems like costly data, unstable internet, and lack of wi-fi services in order to accommodate online classes.

Clearly, these statistics show us how digital education in rural India is far away from a mission accomplished.


Examining the roots

It is true that crises like Coronavirus are unpredictable. However, it is also true that such crises put any nation’s existing infrastructure to test, be it healthcare, education, distribution systems, communications, etc.

India performed decently well in the healthcare sector during the first wave, considering demographics like population density, but the performance of the education sector in rural areas has been a drastic failure. This is because adequate steps had not been taken earlier to digitalize villages and towns, perhaps digital education was not ever considered in villages. The crises exposed this vulnerability of rural areas in reference to access to internet resources, specifically educational resources. The numerous planned policies without proper implementation on the ground level are as useless as a glass hammer. Like many websites, portals, digital libraries may be developed, but without a stable and speedy internet connection, and other basic requisites like digital knowledge and electricity, they are useless.

This further showcases the importance of efficient and effective infrastructure, or at least an improved infrastructure for rural areas, and certain towns and semi-urban areas. Read about HOW TO TRAIN YOUR INDUSTRY TO FIGHT CORONAVIRUS


Proposed Solutions

The aforementioned facts and arguments clearly indicate the slow and ineffective growth of digital education in rural India. It has to be acknowledged that certain parents and students even in the urban areas face difficulties with online classes. There are numerous problems that have been exposed during this time of the pandemic. The infrastructural growth is never going to occur overnight, but there are immediate measures that can be done to solve problems till the time the pandemic exists.

For instance, in areas where there are low infection rates, physical schooling shall start adhering to proper covid-prevention protocols. The students who are privileged enough shall be encouraged to donate their old books, and the government shall play a part as an intermediary to ensure these books reach the needy and underprivileged. These would ensure that the immediate problem of lack of Digital resources is solved. The mid-day meal scheme shall be revised and restarted as effectively and immediately as possible. Schools, when reopened, shall be thoroughly disinfected, and sanitized in order to create a safe environment. Washing sinks shall also be built at every place possible in schools so that children develop the important habit of washing hands during the pandemic.

In the long run, the government has to focus on providing digital education in rural India. They have to take initiatives to improve infrastructure, which helps the country in every time of crisis. Teachers shall be given special workshops for several methods of digital teaching. The government may even provide internet in villages at subsidized rates, and further, develop adequate infrastructure to support the same. Infrastructure in any country will always remain to be the mainspring of growth and development of its people. Hence, developing rural infrastructure along with effective policies shall pave the way for digital rural schools to become an actual reality.
