Modern society has modern problems. The biggest issue society is facing today is ‘Loneliness’. Though the population is increasing, the people are feeling left out. In ancient times, there was a tradition of joint families in India. So, a big amount of mental and emotional support was available. People would easily find compassion and were feeling like they were loved and taken care of.

But, if we talk about recent statistics, nearly 50 lakh people in India live alone. 6 % of students in India thought seriously about committing suicide. 60% of Americans report feeling lonely, poorly understood and lacking companionship. We have never faced any such problem in the history of mankind.

Whenever one feels lonely, he/she gets into some social interaction and relationships. But then, quarrels begin and many times, misunderstanding rises. Then again, a person feels like being alone and stay away from such relationships.

Humans are social animal and we constantly seek someone’s company who understands us and we can have a good time with. But, this is the characteristic of ‘Kaliyug’ that we again get engaged in quarrels and detach ourselves and then we feel lonely.

Is there is any other way to avoid loneliness? ??
