Divine Heaven(Village or City)

The inner instinct makes us optimistic, but being realistic helps us to understand more about life. City life, usually considered as a social life is often misconstrued as the real life. In real, it has no depth in it to be rated as real life. The best part of village is that folks are all related to one another in many ways and enjoys a life worth to be called as the supernal life. Anything like mishaps, everybody will be well informed and help comes in within no time.

It is utterly unjustifiable to point out the less than normal progess in nooks and corners of our country as the main reason for the total migration of people into urban areas. Rural life, where people usually spent their entire life in the field is what I like the most. Ofcourse it is tedious, but we lead a life free of tension. At the end of the day, people draws out the satisfaction of the day. The quest and burning desire for a better life by leaving the grins and beautiful place deserted is the greatest mistake people usually do in the mordern world. 

Back in villages, everyone's place is just like your home. Being nurtured in a small village of Tashigang, I am confident enough to say it so. You have to fear about nothing and there is no risk in going out late. People in cities are more into mental pressure because of the challenging and expensive living standards. Not all are destined  to lead a city life and those who mistakes cities as their home are the ones who lead a pathetic life. There will be no cases of robbery, gang fights, vandalism, drug abuse etc if they were little wise enough to take a prudent decision. 

How is city life better than rural life? Everytime we go out late night, we fear of notorious people in every corners of the cities and some are already the victims of their thwarted urban life. The peaceful night, which is everybody's night and needs to be respected is never taken care by the late night nuisance. As for the rural life, I find it peaceful with no disturbances or noise pollutions. Ofcourse, to live the reality of it isn't an easy task with tedious labour year round. Whatsoever, happiness kicks in when we accomplish our work which gives a sense of great jubilation. To take the outcome of hard physical labour and the jubilation both in one stride is the real taste of rural life. 

I cannot be bias and prevent the objective considerations and brighter part of life in the cities. The changing time unfolds the economy as a whole and people do prefer living in the cities. Migration has led to various consequences such as labour shortage in rural areas and soaring up the unemployment rate in urban areas. City life, assumed to be a comfortable life has showered a harsh reality to many migrants which they find it hard to endure and survive. There is no steady state of growth or stature maintined with some sections of people swimwing in wealth while others are drowned in poverty which is the woeful plight seen in reality. 


  1. Jigme sir, feeling is no different with me. Urbanization has nothing to provide as far as happiness is concerned. Someone seeing richer and better off is a source of unhappiness for others. Life is a race, never ending race.Hassle and tussle is a daily rituals of the city. Still rural-urban drift is going to happen. Because seeing greener pasture on other side is a human nature. Can't help here. Thanks.

  2. @Sangay Phuntsho :- I am yet to get my degree and still in the race to complete the so called trifling college life.
