A single stick is weaker than a bundle of that. What a person individually cannot do, a group can, what a group cannot doa , a society can. It is assocoation that multiplies the power of single unit manifold. Assocoation may be of different aspects:
a) Association of haman to hman.
b) Association of humans to other things.
Association of haman to hman: Human makes group, society etc. By such association, humans achived a lot to present the future generation a betterworld.
Association of humans to other things: Association of a man or woman to more aspects of knowledge makes him or her more knowlegable. For instance, a person who can understand and speak in many languages bears more importance than a person who can speak only his native language.
A person who can associate himself with ethics, morality, humanity, cherity, politics a admistration obviously bears more strength than a person who can associate himself only with admistration or any other else.
However, to enrich oneself, every one should be assocoiated with persons of similar mentality. The should learn different lanuage to understand persons of other languages,to know life style and living pattern of other community.
