Agree with you Krishna. Very apt Topic during this time. I am so Thankful to my parents especially my mother making us help in most of the house chores. This helped me to involve my children as well. This helped them to be so independent.

So much there!!! it has been a year now since me and my husband following this as a lifestyle. we carry our water bottles, cloth handkerchief, our own cloth grocery bags, less online shopping so can avoid plastic packaging, reuse of old clothes and unavoidable plastics. I have started using menstrual cup instead of tampons. yet I feel I have not reached a half way, I would like to work upon my clothes buying. I just joined a group on fb shared by Prabha. one question: what do you use for laundry? I couldn't able to grasp the word. thank you!!!

Hi Krishna....I loved the way you narrated the episode in a very simple way. Personally, my take back from the episode is to do these chores in front of the family members so that take part in the planning. 👍
