While all these aspirations were reasonable, some of them contradicted the lifestyle they currently enjoy the most, that is, community living. Moving to separate flats with bigger living spaces and walled territories and decreased shared spaces, might lead to living in isolation. As said by Jane Jacobs, “Dull, inert cities do contain the seeds of their own destruction.” Those might be people of the same economic or geographic group that might not know each other at all, leading to little activity on the outside, dull spaces, and a constant feeling unsafe environment. How do they build communities that are trusting and supportive, that can reflect and embrace the diversity of backgrounds and cultures that took them years to build in this chawl? A psychology theory says, the richer the person becomes, the more isolated he/she becomes. Hence in order for strangers to form communities, they need to be provided with shared spaces and economic opportunities that can allow them to mix naturally with increased chances of accidental encounters and chances of interaction. Jane Jacob in her book explains that “It is possible in a city street neighbourhood to know all kinds of people without unwelcome entanglements, fears of giving offence, embarrassments respecting impositions or commitments due to the presence of the sidewalk”, a shared public space, which allows people who are very different from oneself, to engage with each other. “Such relationships can, and do, endure for many years, for decades,” she said. It is absolutely essential to form authentic relationships around you and preserve them, to thrive in the sociocultural context of life.
