Some qualities of a good neighbour
What are the qualities that one would look for in people to consider them as good neighbours? Is it just general friendliness, or something beyond that?
It is said that you are lucky if you have good neighbours as the matter of fact you can choose your friends but you can't choose your neighbours. If our neighbours are not good it becomes very difficult to deal with them but the most important question is if we are also good neighbours? We don't know what our neighbours think about us. It may be possible that we think that our neighbours are not good and they are thinking the same about us. So before complaining about others we have to think over this matter whether or not we are good neighbour .
Now what we have to do is to become a good neighbour. Good neighbours are friendly, helpful, trustworthy, respectful and considerate of noise. A good person doesn't irritate his neighbour by his misbehaviour and any unhealthy activities.
If any neighbour comes into our colony you should go forward to introduce ourselves instead of waiting for his arrival. it creates good feelings in his heart for us. We may invite him to visit our home. Being good neighbours does not mean that we are good friends too, however, there is nothing wrong to befriend with our neighbour. Important thing is that our neighbour should find himself comfortable in our presence and us being his neighbour should be considerate people.
In metro life, it looks strange to see that most of the neighbours don't know who are their neighbours . The reason is their ego. Mostly they are limited to their homes. They have no interest nor have time to know each other.
