Electric shock feeling when touching door handles. Reason?

when i was doing my college, i felt electric shock sometime when open water tap. That time i thought that some electric leakage. But for the 2 years, i am feeling this very often, when i get down from the bus, or when i touch door handle, i am getting small shock with spark sound, If touch the same door handle again, i am not feeling anything, But after 1 or 2 hr interval, i am feeling same shock. One day i touched my friend, both of us reliased small shock. I asked many people, but i could not find any reason. Today i got 2 spark sound in three different door in different floors in 2 hrs interval

The information that you have given suggest that you are getting"Static Shock".This is more common in the winter season.Most of the people in USA,UK and other cold regions feel this statics during winter.This is mainly because the weather is very cold and dry.To understand deeply about static electricity you have to understand the science of atom and energy.I would suggest you hydrate yourself by drinking sufficient water,moisturise your skin adequately and use cotton clothes.This would decrease the statics.I hope this helps.
