अगर हम भारत की संस्कृति को देखें तो पूरा विश्व को भारत एक परिवार मानता आ रहा है। 

वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम्: भारत का मूल संस्कार तथा विचारधारा है जो महा उपनिषद सहित कई ग्रन्थों में लिपिबद्ध है। 

इसका अर्थ है- धरती ही परिवार है (वसुधा एव कुटुम्बकम्)। यह वाक्य भारतीय संसद के प्रवेश कक्ष में भी अंकित है।

अयं निजः परो वेति गणना लघुचेतसाम् | 

उदारचरितानां तु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम् || ॥ (महोपनिषद्, अध्याय ४, श्‍लोक ७१)

उदारचरितानांतु वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम्। ।

अर्थ - यह अपना बन्धु है और यह अपना बन्धु नहीं है, इस तरह की गणना छोटे चित्त वाले लोग करते हैं। उदार हृदय वाले लोगों की तो (सम्पूर्ण) धरती ही परिवार है।

इन महान विचार धाराओं के साथ हमारी संस्कृति को किसी भी अंतरराष्ट्रीय परिवार दिवस मनाने की आवश्यकता नहीं है क्योंकि हर दिन खुशियों बांटने का संदेश देने वाला भारत पूरे विश्व को अपना परिवार मानता आ रहा है इसी के अनुसार हमें विश्व में सबसे अलग बनाता है ।
