Life in a big city is often said to be very tiring. It is because distances are long and those who have to go some other place for the purpose of purchases, seeing some relative or friend or work, have to remain on the road for a long time, sometimes, for hours together.
There is too much traffic on the roads in a big city. There is always the possibility of an accident if we loosen the grip over our vehicle even for a moment. Then there is so much pollution in a big city. So many vehicles which run on petrol or diesel pollute the atmosphere. There is also so much noise on the roads and in markets.
There is also an acute housing problem in a big city. Many people have to live in slums, huts, shanties, and small houses. There are often so many places worth seeing in a big city. One does not generally get bored. There are also great employment avenues in a big city for all kinds of people educated, skilled, semiskilled and even unskilled.
In a big city, there are so many schools, colleges, universities and institutions of all kinds where one can get good education according to one’s taste and aptitude. Then there are so many libraries where one can gain more and more knowledge.
There are so many hospitals and dispensaries in a big city where one can get quick medical aid of all kinds. Then there are also so many nursing homes run by specialists of various diseases.
There are so many museums, exhibitions and magic and other shows where one can get recreation as well as an opportunity to enhance one’s knowledge. So, a big city has some merits as well as demerits. It depends upon our own attitude how we look at a big city.
