Relations are of many types. Parents children relations, sister brother relations, husband-wife relations, relations with family, relatives, neighbours and with coworkers etc. one can’t live alone as Aristotle said “ Men is a social animal” so man needs relations and most importantly he needs to maintain these relationships to spend a happy and contented life.
