Why people migrate to big cities?

This is second article in this series, people can read first article in this series by visiting Cost of living life in Big Cities. In last articles, I discussed about why people from villages migrate to big towns and what they miss after settling in these towns. In this article, I will further discuses this topic and why people basically migrate to cities.

The main reason of millions of people migrating to big towns is lack of good earning and educational opportunities in villages. These two basic requirements of life force large numbers of people to leave their villages and migrate to big cities which can fulfil these needs. At the time of independence, India was a village nation with 80% of its population living in villages; however, soon after independence India saw wide spread migratory phenomenon from villages to big cities. Therefore, Indian cities started becoming bigger and bigger mainly because of these migrations and some of these big cities of India like Delhi, Mumbai etc have more numbers of people living in them as compared to many small states of India.

Today, roughly half population of India lives in villages and remaining half lives in cities; so, India is no more a village nation. Further this migratory phenomenon is shrinking Indian villages and increasing size of big cities. Initial governments played very negative role in developing Indian villages and providing all basic facilities to village people. Today, we can see some growth in some Indian villages; however, still this growth in not enough and not spread equally across all villages. Therefore, it is very hard to see any change in this trend and in coming few years; India will become a nation of cities.

There are also other needs which force people from villages to migrate to cities and some of these needs are need of healthcare facilities, need of technology, need of modern facilities etc. Though, Internet has emerged as good solutions for bridging this gap between villages and cities because it is making important things accessible to villages also. Schemes from government like The National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) have provided some positive results and we need more similar schemes from government to solve basic problems of rural people. At the end, I can only say that this trend is likely to continue for some more time till government provides all basic things to people in villages.

Around 15K deaths because of potholes in last five years

Some data are very shocking and unbelievable. One similar data is about around 15K deaths in India because of potholes. These numbers are so alarming that even the Supreme Court of India raised a question on this issue. It is bad for any country to have so bad roads that they start killing more numbers of people than the actual numbers of people killed by any kind of war in country. This clearly states that we don't need wars to kill people because our roads are already doing this job. The condition of Indian roads has always remained a matter of debate. Despite so many efforts, the condition of Indian roads is not good.

Even in big cities, it is very common to find potholes and bad roads then who cares about the small cities and villages. The main reason behind such problems is that there is no system to make concerned authorities accountable. The officials involved in road construction don't do their jobs properly and high corruption is another reason which fuels such probl…

Thoughts on Women's Day

Today, we are celebrating International women day to show our tribute to the contributions made by women in this world. In recent times, women around the world have seen a lot of improvement in their living standards, especially in countries like India and this improvement is significant. Therefore, this day is also celebrated in India with full respect to women, who have made significant contributions in business, politics, career, general life etc.

A lot of people in India celebrate this day by sending flowers, cards or SMS to their mothers, sisters, wives or other female friends. However, still, there is a lot more required to be done to provide more help to women of India because even today, millions of women in India are not able to use all of their basic rights; and are living under the influence of others. Second big issue which is required to be addressed is the thinking of a large number of people about women who still believe that women are either second-class citizens or a b…

Is it right to use Movies to score Politics? #AccidentalPrimeMinister

India is a country of controversies and we keep on seeing newer and newer controversies emerging daily. Some controversies die fast while others continue for years. The recent controversy is about the Anupam Kher's latest movie "Accidental Prime Minister" in which he is playing the role of formal Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh. 

This controversy emerged with the release of the trailer of movie Accidental Prime Minister. The Congress party blames that this movie is made to spoil the image of Gandhi family while Anupam Kher claims that his movie is based on the book written by Baru Sanjaya whose role is played by Akshay Khanna in the movie. 

Mostly in India, we see politics on the single line that "I am right and you are wrong". The focus of all political parties is more on proving others wrong than proving themselves right. They want your votes not because they are right but because others are wrong. In such kind of politics, we hardly see right things pro…
