Life in a metro cityHow do we describe the life of people living in a metro city? Should we say busy lives? or should we say stressful lives? The Indian metro cities are Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, and now a days Bangalore is also counted under metro cities. Does these cities define popularity, we can say yes.
How do the people here live on a daily basis. The most imaginative thought that comes in my mind when I talk about metro cities is "an intersection of road road being completely jammed by the vehicles blocking each other's path." This is the picture that is immediately formed in my mind. And the thought that I get is the 'fast pace' with which people are running towards their office, children are running towards their school. Nobody has time for even a single second to look from here to there. Is this the way how people live there?
Well exactly, the same happens, its called a 'running life'. People living in either independent flats or societies with a healthy environment. Mostly people going to work look very clean and nicely dressed, if you find them speaking you can hear them talking in an interesting tone, with a complete formal outlook. Nice but life becomes stressful. Stress due to office work and also household work. But people are well mannered in their healthy habits, they do jogging, exercise and walking. Almost everybody owns a car as a sign of luxury. Normally we can find nuclear families here. People turn out to be making each other very good neighbors and forming good relations with each other. Small children starts becoming mature and independent since early age, as parents are both working and they are not able to manage much of the time with their child. Life becomes highly independent here. People take independent decisions. People are majorly working in Multinational companies or private sector. We can see urbanization has a great role in metro cities. Life is like a hustle bustle here, but once people lived a busy life , it is tough for them to live a simple and a life with less work. Mode of communication for people is English at the max.
There are malls and supermarkets everywhere to shop almost anything. And so, the costs are very high. Every small thing is double the rate, either it is an eatable or a personal care product. Due to everything being so expensive, it becomes tough for people from middle class family to survive.
In such families, both husband and wife have to work to earn a living and to survive a happy life, to provide good education to their children. And so the existence of Day care centers start, where small children stay while their parents are busy at work. If you have your own home here, you cannot leave it of course and some people even are burdened with loans and the struggle remains throughout their life.
That is how the life in a metro city is !! What more can you add here?
