Interdependence and Co-existence:
A community is a place where people live together with a common interest or heritage. Our community comprises peasants, labourers, artisans, parents, teachers, students and many others. For a comfortable livelihood, communities depend on each other.
Family and Society:
The fundamental unit of society is families. Families can be classified as joint families and nuclear families.
The needs of people such as water, food, electricity, education, housing and so on bring us together to live in harmony. Even though we are diverse in our cultural practices, we are united and interdependent socially.
Families form Neighbourhood - Hundreds of neighbourhood form a Village - Thousands of villages form a City.
