Rural Life vs. City Life

From the beginning of human civilization, human beings began to form societies and started residing in villages. City life and rural life are quietly different from one another. Rural life is quite peaceful as people here do not lead a hectic lifestyle. Swimming, fishing, playing a game in the field, running through the paddy field, drinking date juice in the winter morning can only enjoy in the village.  They wake up early in the morning and fall asleep timely at night. Here the air is not polluted, as is the case with cities. There is also less pollution and a crowd. The morning environment in the village is enjoyable. There are big playgrounds in the village. Villagers are accustomed to easy-going life in villages as opposed to the hectic life in cities that leads to a great amount of stress for them. These are things are quietly impossible to enjoy in rural life. With the passage of time, a man formed cities.

Village life is natural and people in the village lead a very simple life. But villages mostly lack basic facilities such as electricity, schools, nursing homes and factories to employ people. Villagers have to walk on foot for several miles if they do not have their own transport. Villages only provide seasonal employment and most people there are not gainfully employed. All these factors lead to large-scale migration of people from rural to urban areas in search of a good education, employment and comforts of life. Village life is full of natural light, air, food, and vegetables. On the other hand, most of the things in city life are artificial with red and blue light, the gravity of electricity, tension, loud music, etc.

But life in cities has its own negative side – it’s full of pressure, stress, and anxiety. But city life is very artificial. The children cannot take part well in various outdoor games due to the lack of playgrounds. Grass, grasshoppers, birds, rivers, ponds are part of life. People here have several material comforts and amenities but no mental peace. It is full of din and bustle. They are always busy in executing various tasks related to their personal and professional life so much so that they sometimes do not even know their next-door neighbor. There, people lead a very artificial life. People can enjoy fresh air in the village but it is rare in urban or rural areas. The pressure to constantly perform takes a heavy toll on their health and they become prone to various ailments or lifestyle diseases even at a young age. They wake up from sleep hearing the sound of machines and vehicles. Enjoying the beauty of nature sitting under the big trees at noon is possible in village life but it is not possible at all in city life. Some of them even spend sleepless nights and their mental equilibrium takes a beating. Good schools and colleges, expert doctors and modern hospitals and the capacity of earning are some of the advantages that are obtainable in the cities. In a sentence, manmade recreational facilities are obtainable in the cities but in the villages, people can get pleasure walking in the midst of nature.
