Confucius thought that happiness and prosperity would prevail if everyone would behave "correctly" as a family member. The cultural importance of the family is also emphasized in the Old Testament. The earliest codified literature in India, the Rig-Veda, which dates back from about the last half of the second millennium B.C., and the Law of Manu, which dates from about the beginning of Christian era, devote much attention to the family out of all human groups, family is considered the most important basic group. It is a very small social group which basically consists of parents and their children. The family, in turn, can continue to exist only if it is supported by the larger society. Children who are deprived of love and affection from their biological parents, either due to death of their parents or abandonment of children by parents are called Orphan Children. An orphanage is a public institution dedicated for the care of orphans. These orphanages look after the orphans for food, clothes, shelter, education, culture and health.
