Deepak Neupane, kathmandu : Imagine the scene. You wake up every day to the sound of birdsong. Throwing open your bedroom window, you look out on a vista of green fields and rolling hills. There is nothing but open countryside.
Does this sound idyllic? Well not to me. Of course, living in the middle of nowhere might appeal if you’re elderly, or if you’re winter looking for inspiration. And ‘getting away from it all can be quite relaxing in the short term. But if you think life is for living, the last thing you should do is go and live in the countryside.
So what makes city life any better? Well, let’s start with the people. Where else can you meet such an interesting mix of the job opportunities. Where but in a city will you find such a range of choice? And when you want to relax, just think how much culture and entertainment is waiting for you, often just a short bus ride away.
I’ve spent most of my life in the city and I wouldn’t live anywhere else .I’ve been able to meet an incredible mix of people, see the best shows and entertainers, and keep up with the latest trends and fashion. Life is never dull in fact there’s too much to do. Would I exchange all that for life in the country ? Never in a million years!
