  • This is very good for human as a social animal. whatever it is parents still continue to be most important influencers and they have to spare their time and energy for the kids they get. Has anybody studied what one feels when he or she is totally alone. Sense of not closely belonging to someody cann be totally removed through collective efforts. Otherwise the so called collectives would not have failed. Your efforts make person externally happy but internally unbelonged. Thinks over this , these are my views. if you have something more to add I am keen to understand. You see your show is thought provoking.
