    Some young people are leaving the countryside to live in cities and towns, leaving only old people in the countryside.

    Do you think this is a positive or a negative development?

    Youth population is migrating from rural areas to metropolitan cities, leaving their elderly dependent parents behind. This essay will give the arguments that this movement of teenagers from low developed areas to developed areas is a healthy decision.

    As we know that people in there 20’s are constantly try to learn new skills which could not only be provided by the verity of Universities and vocational collages but also by the manufacturing hubs and industrial parks to facilitate them the knowledge of top notch technology with future working path better than their hometown. They could take full advantage of these conditions to enhance there attitude and skills in the competitive work labor force, with the result that they are capable to earn or there livelihood and support old age parents in their hometown.

    Younger generation always want a standard lifestyle to escape their poverty which could only be found in the downtown between the height rising buildings with wide range of available job and diversified career pathways in suburban they get boost in there early stage of struggle. which not only improves there standard of living but also helps to support there parents economically.

    To conclude with, this migration of youngsters not only provides them the quality education and improves there quality of life by much better job availability but also improves the way of living of there parents financially.

    In recent past, there is a huge spike in count of young people moving from rural areas to cities leaving the elderly behind. I personally think this migration has its own negative effects on rural development and it also leads to wastage of available resources. This essay will explains the downside of this kind of migration.

    There are various reason for youth migrating to cities. Firstly, metro cities have numerous highly established schools, colleges and universities. People who dreams of good education will definitely choose these institutions than the colleges in rural areas. Secondly, most of the multi national companies reside in urban areas , which provides jobs for qualified youth. This will attract the youth who have completed their education and waiting for jobs. Young aged people who prefers modern lifestyle like visiting multiplex, shopping in metro malls prefers living in cities than rural areas

    Migrating to urban areas to have good quality of life has its own drawbacks. With the increase in people moving to cities there is high rise in population which further rises the cost of living. There will be constant spike in air pollution and traffic as there will be more vehicles moving around. Recent study by university of Delhi stated that there will be more climatic disasters coming in next 5 years with this air pollution. Leaving elderly at natives will reduce life at countryside as there will be no help available for them to take care.

    In conclusion, Though, young people are moving to cities for education and better opportunities, this trend still have negative effects on air pollution, rising population and old citizens living in natives.

    A no of young people are migrating to cities and towns leaving the old people behind. I believe this is a negative development that will stall the growth of the countryside.

    One of the problems that occur from the younger generation moving to urban areas is the decrease in productivity in the areas which require physical labour (for example wheat, vegetable, and fruit cultivation). For example, there has been a significant downfall in the agriculture sector in past years, as the youth moved to more developed areas the old generation found themselves incapable of handling all the work alone, eventually leading to no other option other than selling it to big corporations for factory constructions.

    Another demerit is the helplessness the elderly people feel when they require any medical attention or help in any kind of an emergency, which leads to a feeling of loneliness. For example, the flood that occurred in Kerala in 2018 created a shortage of food in many backward areas, leaving the people living there vulnerable with nobody to help them.

    In conclusion, the government should use the funds in a way that would help in the betterment of schools, hospitals, and job opportunities in non-urban areas, which will slow the shifting of generation z to boondocks.

    Now a days, villages and small towns have more aged population as younger generation deciding to settle in metropolitan cities and towns for better job opportunities and lifestyle. In my opinion, it is not a good sign as cities are getting over populated and villages remains to be under developed. In this essay we are going to discuss the negative consequences due to this movement.

    Firstly, people moving to cities, it creates tremendous pressure on the city infrastructure including housing, medical, law and order which means more people to be managed by authorities and ending up inefficient in everything, for instance city like Mumbai often struggle to manage their local people. In addition to that everything gets expensive in cities because of difference in demand and supply. For example, renting or purchasing a house in a city is very expensive compare to the small village with lesser people.

    Secondly, countryside will not attract new businesses or opportunities because it lacks new age people to work for them, this eventually means lesser jobs for the remaining people. Further, government will also not get tax money from the business or people to do a development which will add more misery for the people staying there. To illustrate this, compare any rural areas for any medical facilities, job opportunities, or even the infrastructure with that of city to see the difference.

    In conclusion, I would say that economy should start planning to develop the rural areas so that people should stop migrating to cities, add incentives to the businesses to establish so that better future and life with new opportunities available for everyone.

      Villages and small towns now have an older population as the younger generation chooses to settle in metropolitan cities and towns for better job opportunities and lifestyles.In my opinion, it is not a good sign as cities are getting overpopulated and villages remain underdeveloped.

    Migrating for work purpose or perhaps a better life style has become common in the past and indeed increased over the past few decades. Although, we are used to live in a joint family system due to circumstances , decision to move in big city has widely been accepted by the majority. This essay will speak about its benefits of migrating to a big city which contributes to the development of the family and society in general.

    With the impact of globalisation, the corporate world has increased their boundaries to other states and sometimes other countries as well whereby, increasing the employment opportunities. With this optimisation of work force the working community has been asked to migrate to address the employment demands. Such movement has helped many underdevelopment states and country in their economical growth. It was published in national newspaper of how remote villages in the country have gained tremendous growth with the help of few industrial establishments which lead to development of the village and people living and increase in notable employment rates.

    Furthermore, not only does it contribute to the economical growth but, it also helps in the educational system of a country at large. Children coming from a small village background are exposed to best of educational system with vast knowledge transfer given to each and every child and setting the standards of education to greater heights. Privilege of a better literacy is bestowed upon big cities compared to small towns.

    In conclusion , I would certainly agree that movement of people from countryside to big towns or cities will surely benefit them as an individual and community considering the advantage of having a better living condition and providing better educational opportunities for the young generations.
