Is Village Life Better Than City Life?
One of the debates that folks nowadays have is whether city life is better than village life or not. Well, the answer to this question is absolutely subjective. Each thing has its own perks. The one which seems to an advantage for an individual can be a disadvantage for another person.
Each year, millions of people migrate to urban areas in search of greener pastures and a better life. If you are also someone who is planning to move to a city or someone who is shifting to the village, then there are certain that you need to be aware of. First, let’s understand the advantages and then we will try to come to the conclusion of which one is better.
When talking about the city life, the first thing that may strike your mind is the huge buildings, busy malls, and all hustle and bustle. However, the question is whether is city people are really happy with these hustles and bustles? Well, the answer may depend on each individual’s requirement and the lifestyle they want.
Below, I have jotted down the advantages of both the village and city life. Have a look!!
Better Transport Facility: Cities generally have a well-structured transport that connects many urban areas. Here, people can choose their mode of transport, which includes rail, bus, train, etc.
Better network connection: Most of the communication companies have their equipment installed in various parts of the cities. Because of this, we have may have a better network connection in cities.
Better security: In cities we have 24*7 police patrolling. Other than this, we have CCTV cameras all over the place, which makes cities a safer place to live.
Better education: Education is one of the main reasons why people are moving to cities. People think that teachers are more skilled and educated in cities. However, this is not the case always.
All these are the overview of “things” why folks get attracted to city life. Hold on, but what about the basic things!! Let’s have a look at the other side of the story. When comes to village life, the lifestyle of the people is much better than it is assumed to be.
Better Air Quality: Village people inhale a better quality of air. The environment is less polluted because the people here are more dependent on nature and agriculture. You step into a village and you will find a green pasture everywhere.
Better Water Quality: Village people can taste fresh and clean water in comparison with the city people. In cities, large factories and industries have polluted our water to an extent where it has become dangerous to consume.
High-quality food: After talking about the air, water. Let’s understand the food is. Villagers consume a better quality of food because they grow is pure and free from chemical, whereas the food in the cities are injected and is full of pesticides. In cities, people eat chemicals in the name of food. Even the milk is not pure.
Cost of living: The cost of living in the village is really less. Most of the goods are less expensive here. Almost all items are affordable and fresh, whether it is food, clothes, etc. The house in the city which will cost your arms is half the price in the village.
The things that I have mentioned above are not for a lavish lifestyle, but they are the basic things to live a healthy life. If you are basic things are not fulfilled then what more can you expect.
Now, it is your time to decide whether you want a comfortable life or a healthy life. Like said earlier, each thing has its own perks.
