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.
1. People and people everywhere
Most metros in India have more number of people than their natural capacity. Everywhere you look and step, you’ll find people all around.
2. Pollution level is unthinkable
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.
3. No solitude
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.
4. Almost everyone is money-minded
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.
5. The life is stressful
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.
6. Not many people would be interested in talking to you
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).
7. The traveling is tiring
Traveling for work or just about anything takes a toll. You will be exhausted physically as well as mentally.
8. You’ll spend most of your day stuck in traffic
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.
9. You might feel lonely
With nobody to talk to and nobody who cares for you, you are likely to feel lonely most of the times.
10. The life here is mechanical
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.
11. The people and the lifestyle are too westernized
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.
12. You’ll mostly end up being away from your family
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.
13. The climate is not suitable to most people
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.
14. Everything is expensive
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.
