Advantages and Disadvantages of City Life

A city life has its own glamour which attracts people from underdeveloped areas. Though it always lures the people of all classes for its comforts and for its cultural, economic and commercial facilities, it has some backdrops. A city life has rich amenities which are necessary for the modern way of life. Transport facilities of modern towns and cities are highly developed. We have trams, buses, motorcars for quick and comfortable transport. It supplies potable water through a network of pipelines and electricity to its residents. There is a sewerage system of drainage of waste-water. There is an authority to look at the sanitation. There are hospitals and clinics for proper medical treatment of sick people. There is normally a health centre with qualified doctors to attend to the ailing people. There are good schools and colleges for education. There are educational and possibly vocational institutions with facility for use of library. All kinds of physical comforts are within our easy reach. In the heat of the day, we can use the electric fan, cooler, and air-conditioner. Endowed with a lot of facilities, a city life is not free from disadvantages. Many of the streets are dirty and unpleasant due to noise, smoke and dust. The density of population is quite high in urban areas. A city is normally a commercial centre. Too many people live here and we do not feel easy. The rattling sound of buses, motor cars and other vehicles always disturb us. There are dangers to health in crowded cities. Smoke and dust fill the air. Hence, urban life is unhealthy for want of fresh food and fresh air. In the bigness of the city, we lose the common human touch. Nowadays, rural development programs have been taken up in right earnest, yet the advantages of a modern city are far greater than those of the rural areas.
