    • Human Relationships: Nature and ChallengesSummary: In the entire biosphere mankind observes most diverse range ofrelationships. Relationships are intrinsic to human needs. Relationships aregoverned by specific rules underlying particular relationships. On one handrelationships are a human need and on the other hand relationships are liable toabuse. Therefore for our emotional and physical well-being we need to wiselymanage our relationships.We humans live through a variety of relationships. Vast range of relationships welive through is unique to mankind. No other species needs or observes so manydifferent relationships and in such diverse ways. Diversity of relationships isintrinsic to human nature. There are many other species known to live in groupsbut do not have relationships differentiated into mother, father, daughter, sister,brother, spouse, grandparents etc. For example lions are known to live in groupsbut the only relationship lions recognize is male female relationship with thedominant male lion having mating rights over females of the group irrespective ofhistorical considerations.Diversity of relationships is intrinsic to human nature, as can be seen in the mostprimitive tribal societies as well as the most advanced human societies.Relationships can be broadly divided into two groups i.e. congenital and acquired.Congenital relationships may also be designated as inherited or historicalrelationships being determined by birth. Acquired relationships can be furtherdivided into social relationships and friendships. Social relationships may bedetermined by matrimonial relationship or place of residence, education andwork. Friendships are the relationships of our own choice generally determinedby companionship and mutual commitment. Friendship is more than meeting ofinterest or acquaintance. It implies emotional bonding and mutual concern.All relationships are dynamic in character. Dynamism is more in the case of socialrelations and friendships. Scope and limits or nature and depth can profoundlyvary from time to time. Relationships may also be viewed as non-negotiatedunwritten contracts among people resting upon assurance of mutual help andconcern in case of some need. But relationships are neither a trade nor barter.
    • However all relationships are governed by some rules of relationship some ofwhich may even be recognized by law. Relationships of the kind recognized by lawmay be called as legally determined relationships. If there is a mandatory legalprocedure prescribed for constitution of a legally determined relationship, thenthe procedure must be complied with to constitute a legal and valid relationship. What is common to all relationships is the rule that in any relationship, rules ofrelationship prevail over individual interest. One such rule is that in a partnershipmutual interest prevails over individual interest. Companionship, love, respectetc. help sustain a relationship. But what really matters is compliance with rule ofrelationship whether by the sheer force of commitment or love or respect etc.All relationships are liable to turn sour due to various reasons. One reason beingthat people tend to comply with relationships because of emotional reasons andones emotional compulsions vanish or better sentimental alternatives becomeavailable, the existing relationship turns sour. Other important reasons arevagueness of assurance, promise or rule underlying any relationship; relationshipbeing an undefined contract. So parties to any relationship are uncertain as towhat to expect and what to deliver. Generally people don’t deal with theirrelationships prudently and pragmatically.Therefore, either people are exploited in the name of relationship or lose faith inrelationships. The end result is the psychological inability to establish appropriaterelationship or fear of relationships. Even this is not an acceptable situationbecause need for relationships is an intrinsic need and one finds it difficult to leadlife all alone.Solution to the situation lies in understanding role of our relations in ouremotional and physical existence, clearly understanding rules underlying differentrelationships and honest compliance with the rules. We should live ourrelationships prudently and pragmatically. Let our egocentricity or selfishness notspoil our relationships. At the same time if somebody is abusing a relationship, anexhaustive attempt should be made to make the abuser mend his ways but if theabuser is found to be incorrigible after exhaustive efforts, then a decision to endthe particular relationship should be considered. Relationships should not be
    • victims of our temper tantrums or whims and fancies. We need our relations asmuch as we need food, clothing and shelter, if not for material reasons, at leastfor our emotional wellbeing.Author: Dr Mahesh C.
