    In recent times, people are less socializing. Few reasons for this are, having busy schedule or spending more time on gadgets rather with people. Spending some time and making small conversations with people around will help in knowing them better. This essay will describe the reasons and solutions for this situation.

    To meet the required living standards, people are working round the clock, so they are unable to spend few minutes to the people around them. This is the one main reason for not knowing their neighborhood. Also, usage of electronic gadgets has distanced people so much that even in their leisure time, they are prioritizing mobiles and computers over a group chat or an outdoor walk. Not only adults but also children are more interested in playing mobile games than outdoor games which paves way to develop lack of interest in socializing.

    In old times, people used to sit under a tree or in an open place, discuss their thoughts and laugh a bit which helped in knowing people better. But in present, we just forgot spending time with people, helping one another, which distanced each-other in such a way that, even their presence doesn’t matter. This can be avoided by spending less time on gadgets, interacting with people in free times, encouraging the kids to play with the community children rather with devices.

    Thus, I conclude that, talking and mingling in with locality members will not only helps in knowing things but also works as a great stress buster and people are the ones we need in tough times.

    In the past neighbors play a huge role in social life. But in current generations there is a huge gap of communication between the person living next door. It can be due to lack of communication skill, busy life but most gen-Z prefer to spend their time mostly indoors playing video games scrolling through social media.

    There can be numerous reason why current generation don’t know their neighbors, one such example some people are not very good in language command or having poor communication due to their shyness, lack of confidence causing the gap in knowing their neighbors. In some cases people are so busy with their official work they don’t get time for socializing (Example) Doctor who work mostly in odd shifts and overtime often doesn’t have time for greet/meet.

    In my opinion, these problem can be prevented through a proper setting of community association where they can held meet & greet session with all the neighbors. They can also held events like festival celebration for all religion. and also building community park for children to play, elders for walking and gossiping. In these way communication with the neighbors can be build strong.

    Nowadays, people aren’t too familiar with their neighbors, and don’t even bother to socialize with them. This essay, will explain the reasoning behind such behavior amid neighbors, and what can be done to counteract this.

    The main issues in communication between neighbors are, people don’t have enough time for each other these days, and many people find it difficult to engage in new relations. Firstly, in this ever so competitive world, people are too busy chasing their ambitions, and want to do the best for themselves. It is due to this drive amongst people, they have little to no time to socialize with others. While some do have time on their hands, they are anxious to communicate with others, and don’t like to leave their comfort zone.

    However, there are measures that people can take to build a good relationship with their neighbors, such as, socializing via social media, and celebrating festivals together. Social media is a great way to get in touch with each other, and can be used by neighbors to start a conversation between them. Also, this method of communication eases anxiety, and makes it more convenient to open up to others. Also considering, peoples busy schedule, festivals are a good time to meet up with your neighbors, as a public holiday is declared for everyone.

    To conclude, people may be busy in their lives, or are anxious to meet others, but social media and festivals turn out to be a great way to converse with your neighbors, and get to know them.
