Urban life or commonly called as a city life is what every rural resident dream of, a life that faces all the changes in the world, a life that is a stepping stone for many to fulfil their dreams, a life that its own residents may or may not enjoy.
Yes, its own residents, the city people themselves may or may not take a likelihood for the urban life. Some people enjoy the city life because it has more exposure to the outer world. They get all the resources that are required to live a normal as well as a luxurious life. They get more opportunities to explore themselves.
All the branded shops, malls, clubs, hangout junctions etc. can be easily found in urban areas. Here, people can find better job opportunities and children can get better education both in public and private schools. Children get better place to explore their talents. Apart from playgrounds, they can even opt for various types of trainings like that of sports, culture activities and literary class etc., ladies can go to various clubs for their kitty-parties and get together. In cities only, we can find 5 star or 7 star hotels where we can enjoy a luxurious stay. Families can plan out a dinner together and they would have a variety of restaurants to dine in.
People here can get better medication and hospital facilities. Here, in every corner of the city, we can find emergency clinics for immediate treatments. Urban areas also have a lot of libraries where people can come and either sit there and explore the world of books or can even carry back home the books as per their convenience.
Some of the urban residents, as already stated, prefer rural life over urban life as due to increasing development, the peace and serenity of a place no longer exists. In order to be in awe of nature, they often travel to rural places and prefer to live a healthy life over there because air of the city is much polluted as compared to that of the villages where people focus more on to be in the lap of nature.
On the other hand, people residing in the rural areas prefer city life because they view it as a world of dreams where they can live their dreams and will have better life and future because of the resources and opportunities that the city life offers.
Most of our Bollywood actors/actresses had come from small towns or villages in order to fulfil their dreams and to live a star-studded life. They believe that city offers more pathways to their dreams.
Urban life is not only studded with gold but also with rust. Here, families have reduced from joint to nuclear with time. More and more senior citizens are seen in the old age homes rather than in their own houses. Population of city is increasing day by day. In order to show off, people owe so many cars which ultimately results in huge traffic jam as single person drives a single car in order to show their status in the society and thus avoid taking public transports or car pools.
More and more people are migrating to urban areas so as to improve their lifestyle and living. Whereas, more people from urban areas are trying to find a place in the awe of Mother Nature. Both have their own advantages as well as disadvantages. It depends on us as to what kind of life we want to choose and live in. And we cannot force others to live by our choice.
