Life in a metro looks attractive and alluring because of the facilities available, the higher amount of wages and salary, the sophisticated standard of living and much more. People from small towns, cities and villages are always in awe of visiting the metros and even dream of settling down in one of them someday. However, the actual face of the metro cities in India is quite ugly. Surprised? We give you not one but 14 such reasons on why you should not visit Indian metro cities.
Most metros in India have more number of people than their natural capacity. Everywhere you look and step, you’ll find people all around.
Pollution of all kinds, be it water, noise, air, exist at an increased level. There will be garbage lying on the roadsides, the sewages will be spewing forth dirty water and the air you breathe is likely to make you sick.
Unlike in small towns where one can hear the water flowing, the winds blowing and the birds chirping, there is no such pleasant sounds in the metro cities. There will be loudspeakers blaring out music, vehicles honking and people shouting everywhere.
In small towns and cities, people stand by each other in times of need and even help out strangers. In Indian metro cities, people hardly know who their neighbor is and everyone is only interested in making more money.
The competition is cut-throat and it is very difficult to get a well-paid job. The savings are hardly any as the cost of living is skyrocketing. Under such circumstances the life in Indian metro cities is quite stressful.
People hardly bother talking to their neighbors. Unlike in small towns or even at your home, nobody will ask about your whereabouts or whether you have time or not (in case you are living alone and away from family).
Traveling for work or just about anything takes a toll. You will be exhausted physically as well as mentally.
Whether it’s a weekday or weekend, you step out of the house means you’ll be spending most of your day stuck in traffic.
With nobody to talk to and nobody who cares for you, you are likely to feel lonely most of the times.
Life is an Indian metro city is pretty much mechanical where everyone’s schedules are almost the same: get up, go to work, return home, have dinner and go to bed.
People in the Indian metro cities lead a very western-culture-influenced life. Right from the clothes they wear, to the way they talk and the food they eat, all their choices are influenced by the West.
The people residing in metros are mostly the youth who have left their small towns for making a better career and life. They become so used to living alone and away from the family that they slowly become detached from their families.
All the Indian metro cities have extreme climates whether it be the winters of Delhi, summers of Chennai or the rains of Mumbai. These aren’t suitable to most people and there is a high chance that you might fall sick.
From the house to a hotel room and from food to groceries everything in the Indian metro cities is expensive.
Such is the life in a metro.
