There are some advantages and disadvantages both in city life and country/village life. In the city, there are more opportunities for people to make progress in their lives. Children living in the city can get a quality education because there are better schools in the city than in the village. When a person falls ill there are good government and private hospitals in the city to get treatment. There are large shopping complexes, banks, offices, cinemas, hostels, clubs, hospitals, etc. in and around the city. There is electricity, highway, communication, telecommunication, plumb facilities in the city. So there are many charms in city life. However, there is another side of the coin. In city life, people do not enjoy a healthy environment. Air is polluted with dust, smoke, garbage and carbon-dioxide gases. Again there is a high rate of crime in the city. Snatching, killing, theft, etc. are a day to day affair in a city.
On the other hand, people’s lives in the village are easier. People in rural areas live in a pollution-free environment. Also, rural life is almost free from crime and violence. People live in peace and amity there. There are not as artificial and selfish as city people. However, despite disadvantages many people today prefer city life to country life.
