City Life

The tendency of modern civilization is to give prominence to city life. All cities have good schools, colleges, and universities for imparting higher education in all branches and disciplines. The best possible medical aid and hospitals are available in the cities. A city provides for better sanitation and a good supply of pure water to the citizens. All the roads are metalled and furnished with electric light. There are better facilities for transport and communication. There are also provisions for games, sports, amusements of different kinds for the recreation of the people. Good facilities for trade, commerce, and industries are available in a city. In consideration of all these advantages, people prefer to live in a city. Most of the people living in cities are generally educated. A great many of them lead of life of comfort and luxury. But there are still a large number of day labourers and wage earners who are attracted to the cities for their earning facilities. They live mostly in slums and earn their living by the sweat of their brow. In spite of all its advantages, most cities are now in the grip of the traffic jam, air pollution, water pollution, sound pollution and a lot of social evils. Thus, nowadays, city life is an unenviable life.
