Working alone is indeed hard. Yet look on the bright side. As a "one-man" team, you practically manage or look after the entire project from start to finish. This enables you to pick up new technical or managerial skills.

The key is the type of projects you WANT TO WORK on. If having done or expose to it you don't like then speak out request the type or industry the projects are in.

Once you do speak, it will be up to the manager or your immediate supervisor to follow through. So the one on top is another key factor.

R&D is part and parcel for all developers who wish to keep abreast of the latest technological trends. Numerous frameworks, libraries, ideas come out everyday which might help you code better. If R&D is a pain point, then programming might not be a good career choice for you.
On the other hand if you feel being lonely (which I take as there is no other developer for me to bounce off my ideas and not as I don't have any friends at the office) is a pain point, then you can always surf/participate on forums. Many a times I have learnt something new by just reading what people ask or answer.

I am not sure what you mean by worried. What is it that worries you? What problems do you anticipate and why? If you can share the details, we can offer better suggestions

No R&D is not a pain point,infact i learn lots of new thing in every projects from RnD. I am worried means recently i given interview with other company, I given technical interview very well but suddenly they asked how much team you have for particular project, so i replied here i work alone as only 2 developer are here (actually i work under my senior developer).Here my senior just gives me project description like what framework needs to be used what functionality needs to be implemented etc thats it... if i stuck somewhere then i ask him about problem .

Some people will judge you by your clothes, english fluency or even your surname. Does that mean that you should fret over them? I don't think so. Even I am working alone (which I prefer) which is not anything to bother/hide from. Also, with excess people, there is a constant fight for who gets the pie(better growth opportunities) as is evident from other posts in this forum.

The interviewer was trying to find out if you can work with a team, as a cohesive unit. The answer you gave was quite correct. You might also wish to expand on the fact that you interface with the people who give you the requirement, who test it etc, depending on your scenario.
