My Neighbors :
Neighbors play an important role in our social life. A good neighbor makes our life sweet where bad neighbor makes a hell of it. One cannot have neighbotus of one’s choice.
Shirr Rasha Krishnan is my next door neighbors. He is a clerk in a private establishment. He has two sons and three daughters. His mother and youngster sister also live with him. Early in the morning there is generally a quarrel between Rasha Krishnan’s wife and his mother. When they are quarrelling, he looks on haplessly. The two ladies abuse each other loudly. Many passersby collect on the roadside to enjoy the fun.
His children are also very naughty. They spoil our garden and pick floors. They also pick up quarrel with my younger brothers and sisters. They are dirty and they misbehave with strangers. They fight among themselves even in the presence of their mother.
Mrs. Rasha Krishnan is a terror to all the ladies of the street. She throws garbage near our gate. She has the habit of backbiting. She borrows sugar, wheat flour and other sundries from all the Neighbours but never returns what she borrows. She is fat and ugly but she considers herself very beautiful.
Good neighbours can make life really pleasant, while bad neighbours can do the opposite. I am lucky to have two good families for neighbours. We all get along quite well and we rarely quarrel over anything. The Reason may be the fact that we all live in a colony provided by a large computer company. Our fathers work in the same office and are thus friends.
The family living on our left is a small one. The husband and wife have just one daughter who is in school with me. The family on the right has two sons, one of whom is studying for his degree in another town and the other one who is a schoolboy like me.
We all share our joys and sorrows like true friends. We children play together in the evening s while our parents discuss the events of the day. Sometimes there are misunderstandings, but we soon sort them out. We are all always ready to help each other.
I feel very lucky to have such good neighbours. It has mad life more peaceful and happier. I wish everyone would be fortunate enough to get good natured neighbours like me.
