Ans: We are social being and always depend on each others in everyday life. People communicate to build and maintain relationships - family, parenting, community. Communication is necessary for emotional intimacy. People communicate to conduct business/commerce, to help/support each other, to learn/educate, for pleasure - story telling, film, music, art, theatre, etc.
