The man is a social animal. He who lives without society is either a beast or God remarked the famous Greek Philosopher Aristotle more than two thousand three hundred years before. The man has to live in a society for his existence and welfare. In almost all aspect of his life, he feels the need of society. Biologically and psychologically he is compelled to live in society. Hence every person has responsibilities towards the society which we term as Social Responsibility.
