Are we strangers in our own Neighbourhood?

Many suggest that we got disconnected from the physical world. In other words we are strangers in our own neighbourhood.

The very recent floods in Chennai, India, natural calamities  bring to the fore the need for getting connected with near by.

Even in normal times we do get benefited if we know our physical world better.  When I say, physical world, it constitutes places and people.

Places: Which are the near by Restaurants, Schools, Hospitals, entertainment places transit/parking facilities etc.
Information: When shopping, knowing which are the offers near my location helps make decisions faster.
People: Find people near by, to ask or seek.

The list is endless.Neighborhood Places from a couch

Finding people and placesSenthil Manoharan, a Bangalore student wrote to us “I have just now started to use the Orbyo. I find it very useful, as my college is present in the outskirts of Bangalore, I was feeling difficult to get some good places around my college to hangout. With the help of Orbyo it is easier for me to get to know around the place and it has even suggested me a good cafe nearby to hangout.”

Senthil is no longer a stranger in his neighbourhood.
