People usually shift from their parents house to other locations in search of jobs or to pursue studies. Sometimes, they move abroad for the same. No matter how much people boast of having privacy and living independently, it requires effort to manage everything on your own while achieving your goals. And it is not as easy as it seems. On top of that, no ghar ka khaana. But when your parents visit your place, naturally, you feel comforted by their presence.
