Hi friends.. Since I live in a city I feel village life is more healthy and stressless when compared to our life in city.. because we can have good climate.. fresh fruits and vegetables.. Fresh Air.. Free from most of the pollutions.. and more time to spend with family and friends in the village.. where as in city we need to race with time.. lots of stress in work.. every where pollution.. Most of the time unhealthy food.. Lack of time to spend with family.. What do you feel friends? Are you leaving in city or village? How is your life? please share with me..

I live in the city and you are correct that village life is less polluted and stressfree. However, I don’t think I can live in the villages…most villages don’t have basic infrastructure like proper roads, transportation, online water, electricity etc…after being born and bred in the city, I don’t think I can adjust to life without power (and with mosquitoes) or bathing in ponds or rudimentary toilet, no roads or bullock carts or cycle vans…I am not even thinking of TV and computers and internet…those are luxury but I would need at least the basic necessities which are not there in most villages

Hi Sudipta.. you are right dear.. its difficult to live in a place where there is no basic necessities.. but if you have all basic necessities in a village then it will be very nice to live there.. its my experience in my husband's village.. I love to go and stay there.. but due to career me and my husband are staying in city..

Sudipta! Your points are equally valid, perhaps for those of us who were born and brought up in big cities, it would be very difficult to stay in villages, where basic amenities are not enough.

Hi dear Chaitra! You are very right city life is really very problematic. It is full of everyday hassles and one needs to run around everyday to cope with pressure of fast and happening life in a big city or a Metro. I have never stayed in a village. However, I feel life would be better and peaceful over there. I was born and brought up in Delhi, so I cannot compare the two lives. One thing I am sure that in villages or small cities, people just take the things coolly and don’t run around and they keep social contacts too and everyone knows each other. However, in big cities, even neighbors do not each other and they do not remain aware about other’s profession and family. Life is getting confined to big apartments and people are getting centralized, which is not good for longevity of the society at large. Deepak

Hi Deepak I too was born and brought up in a city.. But I got to see village life whenever I visit my father's native.. but after marraige I got chance to stay in my husband's native which is a village for one month.. After that I got a clear picture of life in village.. I love village life.. whenever I get a long live me and my husband go to his native and stay there till we finish our holidays.. It is really wonderful there.. yes you are right.. as the city grows broadly.. people's mind become narrow.. Thanks for sharing your experience.. Happy myloting..

Yes Chaitra, sometimes change from urban village to rural village brings a kind of freshness in our lives and change should be there to rejuvenate ourselves. You must enjoy your holidays over there.

Hi Chaitra, I live in a city as well and sometime I am sick of the hasty pace of the city life. But we have no option for the living life. There is no developed industry in the village, surely not so many pollution there. People are always not satisfied with their life. Some of my friends lived in the village always complainted that life is bored there, no passion, no excitement and no earning inspiration. Everything is bored without the vivid scene and active people. I prefer to work in the city and commune to the countryside staying the night, then I can forget the stress, the botherings from work when I leave the office. Have a nice day.

I am living in a city. I am accustomed to city living although it may be stressful at times. But for me the pros in living in a city outweighs the cons. I like it that in a city, I can always find what I want and I don't have to travel far just to get the things that I want. Also I like the comfort that even if I don't cook I won't go hungry (I am a lazy cook) just as long as I have money to buy food. Occasionally I spend my time in a village. I go home to our house to rest to relax but I couldn't stand being idle and soon boredom will get the better of me and I would wish that .I am back in the city. Although I love the fresh air and the easy climate a village has but I still am a city girl at heart

Hi Chaitra, I born and brought up in a village and I know the beauty of the village and advantages of a village life. People are happy to help each other in village. But in city all are busy with their own life and no time for others or didn’t even know about the next door people. If you go and search for some people or address many people does not about the same even if they are neighbors. But in village we know our neighbors well and always participating the happiness and sadness of their neighbours. I really miss the cooperation in city life. Presently I am living in a city and life is going on like a machine.

hello chaitra! i have experienced living in the city as well as in the village... both do have their advantages & disadvantages. when i am still living in the village, i enjoy the freshness of the environment, the close relation between neighbors, the simple life, nice quiet environment free from any pollution... i really love it, what i just don't like is that its very stressful for my husband coz he needs to report on his office once a week and travel is a burden for him during that time, coz from where we live, its 3-4 hours travel from the city... now, we are already living in the city, and i am missing my life in the village... coz here, everything is expensive!and here, we need to buy everything...unlike in the village where we can get some for free by planting our own veggies & raising some animals like chicken... haha lots of pollution around, and life is so fast and kinda stressful as well, but good thing about the city is the accessibility of things and its near to my husband's work...

Hi there Chaitra. Hope you are doing fine. For me, life here in Singapore is pretty busy. People bustling about doing their work and rushing to and fro. But I am pretty much already used to this kind of life. If one day, I go for a vacation, I would wanna go to a suburban area. That would be so cooling and relaxing, for sure. And then, coming back to city life to soak back all the stresses. LOL. But one good thing out of this is my brain is constantly working full swing. Trying to focus, get things done and I don't need much sleep. Sometimes, I find it difficult to sleep because my brain is pretty much fried up with impending things and upcoming ones too. But it all works out pretty much quite alright in the end.

hi chaitra well unfortunately i don't live in my own city, dad has an occupation at some other place and so we had to stay away from our city, although i have to say i had lots of fun growing up at this place where my dad works, i don't really miss living in my own city but yeah i do miss many of my relatives and all, i know i could have been more in contact with them if i were living there but well that is fate and i had a different place chosen for me, but each year we do visit our home city and visit our relatives during Christmas, it is so fun to see them at such a beautiful occasion, i don't except a year or two there has been any year when we hadn't been to our home city on december... i just love the cold weather there and the beautiful atmosphere during the Christmas time, it just brings me to joy, it is one the best time to meet your close and dear ones. The place where i grew up is a lot more bigger and more business based and so i like this place as well...

oh dear i am sorry i got the discussion wrong, well but to level the matter i would say that my home city is more of a rural type yeah you can say a village, but i am living in a city... well no wonder village has more cleaner air but during december it gets really really cold out there, whereas i don't feel that cold in the city where i live... some of the fields i like to visit when i go to my village, to see the wonderful fields in the dawn with some farmers already at work, it feels so see the nature in one of the most natural forms... the glare of the morning sun in the city can never be as beautiful as it gets in a village, simply beautiful and also with clean air to breath, it feels so wonderful and yeah the noise of traffic is all lost, you don't get to hear anything of that sort in the village, the folk stories some are so funny to hear, some talk about ghosts and tried to scare me when i used to visit as a child still there are some minor silly things people like to talk about, sounds interesting sometimes but are superstitious...

Hi lenny: thanks for your answer, i totally agree with you: there's nothing better than the place you can call home. You can feel stress wherever you are if you don't love what you're watching and obviously if you can deal with your neighbours. Hope you can adapt yourself to this new situation, after all everything has a solution. Thanks for your answer. Hope you have a nice day.

Hi chaitra I do agree that city life though, is comfortable and we get all our facilities,and luxuries, nothing can beat a village life. In cities, lots of pollution will be there and adulterated food and the people are also very selfish and they do not have any true affection and love. Everything is compared with money and material and everything is very expensive. But in village, we get fresh air, unadulterated food at cheaper cost and people show their love from the bottom of their heart and are not showy

Hi Vathsala you are right.. In city life everything is materialistic and every thing is valued for money.. But the life in a village is a real one that is what I feel.. after staying for a month in a village..

I grew up in a village, but I've been living most of my last 10 years (since I went to the high school and then college) in a city. It's true that life in a village is more peaceful and healthier, but in a poor country such as mine, you can barely survive just by working the fields. That's why you need to get a job, and jobs are rare in the villages...

Dear Chaitra, I myself live in the city but i have seen many villages as i am working in a institute where we have lots of field work in villages. I also like village life. So much peace of mind, healthy atmosphere and above all attitude of village people. Village people can give u lot of time which is not possible in city life. People are always ready to help each other.

currently, i am working in the city so i have to live also in the city. we have a house in the province and there is really a big difference living in there than here in the city. besides the better climate and fresher air, the food is a bit cheaper than here. but i can't live in the province because of my job so i have my family too, living with me here.

HI neildc.. Good that you have got a house in the province.. whenever you are free from job you can enjoy your holidays there.. you are right cost of living is less in villages when compared to city.. in the same way potential earning is also lesser than city.. so we need to choose city life for better career and earning purpose.. Thanks for sharing dear.. happy myloting..

I have always lived in the city and I an used to the rat race in the city but on few occassions, I have visited the village and living in the village is not bad but you know as they say the grass is greener on the other side so if I were leaving in the village, i would wish i were leaving in the city so I am satisfied with my life.

Hi, chaitra. I was born in countryside and lived there for 15 years, which left me deep a memory. As you said, the air in countryside is fresher and people suffer less stress than people living in cities. The life pace is not fast which enables people to enjoy their daily life fully without worrying about being fire. Besides, I always believe that people living in countryside tend to live longer than those in cities. They are mostly farmers who can plant crops and vegetables in fields, so they are able to eat fresh food everyday. But city people have to buy everything they need, from rice to vegetables. I don't mean that living in countryside is all advantages. It certainly does have its negative aspect. For example, people can't keep up with the latest news and fasions, and they are more out of date and out of fashion that city people. It can't offer more job opportunities than a city does. So everything is two-sided. What we have to do with it is to choose one that best applies us.
