The objective of this paper is to seek the perception of the villagers on the level of peaceful life as they perceived and to analise the factor that determined their peaceful life in the urban village. 132 questionnaires were filled by the head of households in the villages that were selected and interviews with the selected head of households were also done. The results showed that bonding within the family is not enough to guarantee the harmony in life, however, relationship within the neighbourhood is the indicator to determine the life harmony of the villagers. However the combination of the relation within families and among the neighbourhood can be the best determination of the harmony in the life of villagers in these “urban villages”. It is best to say that bonding between neighbourhood is crutial in “urban village” in determining the level of social tranquility.
