Being social is one integral part of our lives these days. Imagine a world where you are far far from the town, from the constant noise of traffic and devoid of any kind of interaction with people. There are chances that some might even go insane. Then again there are some who’d would want nothing more than isolation and for them solitude could mean the world.
