I think it's kind of a disease that they stay away from people. This is common in highly educated professionals and elite class who don't know who is living abutt to their flat or bungalow. They are limited to their own world. They don't know what is happening around them. Some of them even don't what is happening in their country. During campaign of Delhi elections when whole of the media was giving coverage of elections, Shaheen bagh protest was going on, opposition parties were creating high voltage drama and all that was occurring. Media was loitering from street to street or market to market or a locality to another locality. During this period, when one media reporter was in Khan Market (New Delhi) and asked the normal question to young guys and girls like which party was going to win elections etc most of them questioned back to reporter "where elections are going on?"
However, one or two of them said, "We do have heard about elections in Delhi" but when they were asked about the date of elections, they could not reply, when they were asked if they would cast their vote, they replied in negative.
