Wow appreciate the personal input. Also thanks every1 for your comments.
I have observed from my western friends (i am western too, but we mainly hold indian traditions in regard to life style)..My western friends treat dinner time extremely well, some of them eat at a certain time and together. We hardly do that but i thought it was nice.
I think family time is important and over dinner is a good way to connect.
