Deeply ingrained in Hindu families and Indian mythological stories the word Ayush. The elder members of our family bless us with long life and encourage bonding with each other. The Hindu families are still guided by the strong bonding and love just as the Pancha Pandavas in the great epic Mahabharata, and their mother Kunti blessing her five sons with long life, vitality, and power. With Kunti’s blessing and the other elder members like Pitamaha Bhisma, Shri Krishna, Dronacharya, and Vidur, the Pandavas fought the Kauravas and stayed together through thick and thin. 

In the Ramayana as well, the love, bonding, and blessings of elders did help Rama, Laxman, Shatrughna, and Bharat keep alive the sense of unity and accord in Hindu families for years.
