Life in a big city


            Life in a big city is artificial. Man is completely cut off from nature. He has no contact with the sun, the moon and the stars. Life in a city is no doubt comfortable, but the happiness is not found in cities. People in a city are always in a hurry. They do not find joy in living. They work like the slaves according to a fixed routine. They are mere feeling fewer machines. They are mad after the material comforts of life. They have no peace of mind. They have pale faces and sunken eyes. Many of the city people live in crowded areas. They don’t inhale fresh air. Some of the industrial cities are very dirty. Karana, the bigger city of Pakistan, is said to be the dirties city of the world. Even Kolkata is a very dirty city. The city people are selfish, greedy and cunning. They may dress well and have very good manners. But they are selfish creatures. City dwellers live a life of fever and fret.

Life in a Big City

No doubt, life in a big city is very hot and full of glamour but the dark side behind it is far more fearful. The noise and the bustle, the smoke and dust, the  air of haste and unrest bewilder a countryman. A man who lives in the country finds city life most unpleasant. Accustomed to all his days to take life easily he feels himself an alien. He loses his hearings amidst the unceasing noise and feels in a state of high tension.

But a man born and bred in the city has different feelings altogether. He is accustomed to this crowd and “busy hum of men” and he makes quick adjustments with the problems and complications each day brings forth before him. Life to him is an exciting adventure, full of novelty and unexpectedness at every turn.

With the rising unemployment in rural areas and more and more people getting good education, the population in big cities is increasing day by day. More and more people come to cities for opportunities in business, higher education, jobs and specialist medical aids. The growing presence of multinationals in cities like Delhi, Bombay, Kolkata and the like attracts thousands of youth to seek employment in them. The expansion of business opportunities is also  inviting lots of people  to the cities. Thus the hustle and bustle, noise, pollution is increasing day by day in cities. The big cities are expanding day by day on all sides where hundreds of housing colonies are developing along with many business establishments. The older residents of these cities prefer to settle in outside areas to escape noise and pollution of the main city. In spite of all the problems of the cities people continue struggling all their lives to work in this environment of busy hum. Everyone is busy. None has time to even talk to his neighbour or relative. Everyone lives his individual life. The social contacts are absent. The lust for money is increasing day by day. The value of properties has gone sky- up. There is no value of life. Accidents happen everywhere every day. This is a mad- rush. People aspire for a whiff of fresh air. People have no time to take rest. They cannot sleep soundly because of the tension of work and competition. Everyone does his work in the hardest competition truth and  honesty is very rare in big cities. You are liable to be cheated at every stage , so you also prefer to cheat others. This is mad – race for false prestige and power. Everyone wants to reach the top by hook or crook. Delicacies are rampant in big cities. Duplicate of everything is available. Duplicate medicines, clothes, toys, machines, watches, cameras, spare parts, electric and electronic equipment are available everywhere. It is very difficult to find out the genuine and reject the duplicate.

In spite of all this  there is a strange attraction of life in cities which keeps people stick to them. Besides, the opportunities of employment and bread – earning are easily available if you are person to work and show you excellence, the big cities provide big careers for the diligent professionals. They reach the top as the opportunities are many.
