Difference Between Village Life and City Life

Village Life vs City Life
 

There exists a clear difference between village life and city life. This is mainly because the ambiance created in the city is completely different from that of a village. This clearly impacts the way of life of the people in these two contexts. The experience of a villager is different to that of someone who lives in a city. The social relationships, work, bonds, opportunities, social mechanisms all are rather contrasting. Through this article let us examine the differences between village life and city life.

What is Village Life?

In a village, life is calm and quiet. People in the village know each other very well and have developed close bonds with others. Villagers are very friendly, warm-hearted and are ready to help others at all times. In a village during special occasions, all the villagers get together and help each other in preparations. Unlike in the cities where people keep to themselves in a village, there is a greater bond among villagers.

However in a village, there are fewer facilities in comparison to the city. Villagers usually have difficulty in transportation, education, and even medication. Most villages do not have fully equipped and modernized medical facilities. In some cases, the villagers have to travel long distances to reach the hospital or the medical center. Schools are also underdeveloped. Parents would be happy to send their children to cities for higher studies rather than to villages. Seeking employment can also be difficult in the village, because there are fewer opportunities.

What is City Life?

Unlike the village life, city life is endowed with a lot of advantages. This is because of the fact that there are a number of opportunities open to you in a city. City life is provided with a lot of facilities too. Cities are endowed with quality higher education institutions whereas villages are not endowed with high-quality colleges and universities.

In addition to schools and colleges, city life is preferred for improved medical facilities. If someone falls ill in the family, you tend to take him or her to a popular hospital in a city since villages are not equipped with the best of medical attention. The number of hospitals in a city and the facilities are far more when compared to that in a village. A city has banks, cinema theaters, parks, golf courses, sports stadiums, clubs, hotels and shopping malls.

The behavior of people in a city is different from that of the people in a village. People in a city are unfriendly, and they maintain distance from others. On the contrary, the people in villages are warm-hearted and friendly. Villagers receive you well whereas city-dwellers tend to be within doors. People in villages are very helpful in nature, but people living in cities tend to be more selfish in their attitude.

A city is characterized by various kinds of pollution such as noise pollution, visual pollution, and air pollution. This is due to that fact that there are a number of factories, industries and mills in a city than in villages. Hence, villages are endowed with pure air devoid of pollution. Also, visual and noise pollution are less in villages. These are the main differences between village life and city life.
