In India 60% of the people still live in village because India is primarily an agrarian economy. Some villages are large while others are smaller in size. The lifestyle of people in villages is totally different from those who live in cities. In village people rise early in the morning as the cock crows and see the sun rising in the east. Their lives are healthier and peaceful. As there are no factories or industries, the level of air pollution is significantly less as compared to the cities. In villages, the produce is fresh and the relatively less amount of stress helps in maintaining a better outlook to life.
Most of the villagers engage in agriculture as the source of their livelihood. They rise up early at dawn to plough or till the fields, and according to the seasons plan what crops to sow or harvest. In addition, there are those who have shops or work in industries such as pottery or making furniture. However, agriculture is undoubtedly the main source of their income.
At evening, most of male population gathers in village ‘Chopal’ (a common area) where they play cards, talk, etc. Another noteworthy aspect of the life of people in village is their propensity to be very social and cooperative towards each other. This social structure creates harmony and fosters awareness towards helping and looking after each other’s interests. This is a great difference from the life in city where people hardly even know their neighbours.
Therefore, I think that life in village is simple, peaceful and healthy. You should visit some villages in India.
