Jannatun Lucky  :
In the present world, more and more people are moving to cities in search of a better life. This leads to the question of comparison of city life and village life; there is a clear difference between these two lifestyles.
City is often described as a large and a highly populated area. Therefore, city life is living in a large populated, technologically advanced area. According to World Health Organization, 54% of the world's population lived in urban areas by 2014. A city is technologially more advanced and complex than the countryside.
Therefore, there are many advantages in living in a city. Technology makes our lives easy in a city. Cities have many facilities like high-quality hospitals, educational institutes, banks, shops and other business institutes.
This makes our life easy as we can access the facilities provided by these institutes and organizations without delay. Moreover many employment opportunities are available in the city as many major business institutes, factories are located here. City life also gives us access to developed infrastructure facilities like water, electricity, telecommunication and transportation facilities.
However, we can also notice a difference in the behavior of the people living in the city. City dwellers tend to be busier, ambitious and distant compared to the village folk.
A village is defined as a small community or a group of houses in a rural area. Thus, village life can be defined as living in a small community or a group of houses in a rural area. A village is calm and quiet, and you can spend a close to nature lifestyle in the village.
The abundance of natural beauty and resources is one benefit of village life. A village is not as technologically developed as a city, and people who live in the village do not get the opportunity to obtain many facilities.
They face difficulties in obtaining even basic facilities such as medication and education. However, people living in villages are comparatively kind and friendly. They are warmhearted and ready to help each other.
The major difference between village life and city life is the facilities; many modern facilities available in the city, make our lives easier and efficient. However, it is often difficult for villagers to get even the most basic facilities.
Moreover, there is variety of employment opportunities in a city. Another significant difference between village life and city life is the environment; living in a village facilitates a closer to nature lifestyle while living in the city further distance people from nature. In fact, a city life is characterized by various types of pollution such as noise pollution, sound pollution, air pollution, etc.
A village is calm and quiet, and villagers can enjoy the natural beauty. Another noteworthy feature in village life is that villagers are more kind, friendly and warm-hearted than city dwellers. People living in cities are relatively busy, selfish and solitary compared to villagers.
In addition, another advantage of village life is that cost of living is relatively lower than in the city.
Which is better, city life or rural life?
 Khademul Islam, Headmaster of Ghatbour Primary school, Panchagarh answered, "Rural life, definitely. You can live more closely to nature. The air is probably cleaner and fresher too. Less light and less sound pollution, thereby the nights would be full of stars. Less people to bother you".
