Everyone wants to share his/ her happiness with near and dear ones. That’s why people rush for their homes despite serious hazards. This is called the pull of roots. Do human beings have roots like the trees? The answer is ‘yes’ though invisible, they lie in our minds. It’s the roots that make a bond between us and family members, in-laws, friends, neighbors or even between us and the land where we were born and grew up. Wherever we stay, we have a continuous pull of our roots. It’s our roots that develop our identity, making us what we are. When we lose our bond, we become rootless. Without roots we are non-entity. Such persons are devoid of values, humanity and social responsibilities. They don’t know where they are from and where they are heading towards. This often makes them feel empty and lost.
