Life In A Big City

Life in a big city is different from life of a village or a small town. The hustle and bustle which is found in the cities is not in the small places. Once I had an experience of a life in a big city. It was a strange experience. I went to Karachi to spend my summer holidays with my uncle. He lives in Sadar Bazar. A very busy and crowded area of Karachi. I was surprised to see such frenzied activities of people throughout the day. As I live in a village near Narowal I had no idea that life would be like this in a crowded city. In my village I was an early riser. Instead of the songs of birds I heard the cries of hawkers and vehicles there. Karachi sleeps at one O' clock after mid night and the new day starts at four O' clock in the morning. Everywhere so much of noise is there and the people have grown insensitive and are not affected by this. I went to the neighbor's house to play with his children. I was informed by the parents that their children would never get time to play. Early morning they go to school and come back tired in the evening. Preparation for next day's school work takes more time and very rarely do they go out in the open air to play. In our village things are quite different. Natural surroundings goods water fresh air and relaxed life style give us energy and make life more enjoyable. There is absolute peace without the noise of motor horns and hawkers. People are simple love each other and share life with each other and live like one big family. Of course there are no modern facilities like transport hospitals school etc. I was thinking to visit a suburb in Karachi. My uncle took me to the station to board an electric train. The trains were moving very fast and people were traveling hanging by the bars on the foot boards. The scene was frightening and I had no courage to get inside the train at all. I felt safe and confident when I went back to my village.
