The competition is being organised at a time when there are divergent
views in society about the concept of joint family system.
While some are of the view that the joint family system is not in tune
with the changing lifestyle in present day society, others feel that
the disappearance of the joint family system is the root cause for
several social problems and stress among the younger generation.
