My Neighbors

In the big scenario of metropolitan advance cities of today we are losing our social contacts/ apsi bhaichara/padoswad. Even many of us not known to the family/person living next door to us or if known then it is totally a formal relation means saying hello when we are leaving for office or meeting once a while when meets by chance. In some posh localities of big metropolitan cities peoples are not aware about the problems of their neighbors. Even if someone is in hospital or some is going out of station neither we care to inform our neighbors nor the neighbors try to inquire. Sometimes in case of deaths neighbors do not think about the arrangement of basic facilities (food, water, activities related to crimination) for the affected family. In case of some functions like marriage peoples do not participate like a neighbors but like a guest who comes at last moment shakes hands, eats dinners and goes back.

In small village peoples lives like a family, every neighbors is like a family member. Peoples works in functions like marriage and stand together in tough times.

Here lines of Ms. Jahnvi (a lead role in movie Lago Raho Munnabhai') comes to mind that we are connected to Internet, knows latest news about the world but do not knows about the neighbour. We get the time to do every work in this world but we forget to call our elder family members in village. It is reality of metropolitan life.

The main reason behind end of social contacts is too much busyness, stress on every individual, and self cornered heart. TV is another big cause behind this problem as all small children, housewives, elders members stick to it instead of meeting to each other.

Please suggest the ideas which could solve this problem.
