i see my neighbours on a daily basis and exchange good mornings or just smile if i ahppen to see them while going out, but talking i jsut dont get enough time to do , always everyone is in a hurry doin this and that, but if there is some common problem in our neighbourhood then we all assemble and discuss,

I dont talk to my neighbours that often, because we start off to work at 8 am in the morning and return back only at 8 or 9pm in the night, so we do not get time. And even during holidays and weekends we seldom talk to them as we dont have much things to say or talk about.

as we live in a society it is good to keep in touch with our neighbours atleast as they will be the only persons immexdiately avaialable in an emergency

I lived in a small village at the foot of a hill in my childhood,I remembered that we often talk to each others,of course include our neighbours,we get along very well with each others. now,I live in the centre of city,but we seldom talk to each other anymore.I don't know why,everyone seems so busy everyday,and have nothing to say to each other.but I often recall the past time in the small village,it's more comfortable for me.

Since i am physically incapacitated and wheelchair bound my communication with most of my neighbours has dwindled considerably. However i do sometimes have my immediate neighbours calling on me but mostly i am left to my own devices. There are many people in my own building colony who are totally unaware of my existance which amuses me a lot.Today even persons in the same family don`t find time to talk with each other so how can we expect to find time to talk to our neighbours ?

well i hardly go out, so dont get to see the ones staying next door. but when v bumo into each other v surely do greet. well nothing much is there to talk as v dont knw much abt them . but i think it is always nice to know the neighbours. i always wanted to . but now in this world everyone is bc. no one is at home. so they have no time.

i don't usually talk to my neighbors, because i seldom see them.. i usually go out of the house 4-5am, which i think they're still asleep.. and go home 10-11pm, so there's nothing left to talk to.. all their houses were close and maybe sleeping already when i got home..
