From the time I came to Bangalore my lifestyle changed a lot, Thanks to the fast-paced metropolitan life style :). Every time I go to big malls I feel the difference in living in big city compare to the small one. I thought I will share my thoughts with you all. Let us see how treatment of same issue changes with change in place….
NO 1 #
Small city: Fight with sabji wala bhaiya for 2 Rs/- or for complimentary chilies & coriander leaf, dice all the fresh vegetable yourself.
Big city: Pay 10 Rs/- extra and buy two days old diced vegetable from supermarkets.
NO 2 #
Small city: Car comes out of garage for monthly cleaning or to go for function at some close relative’s place, when invitation is with family.
Big city: Car comes out of garage everyday to go to office or to go for jogging. Only one person sits inside and burns petrol.
NO 3 #
Small city: Cable TV is used to its maximum limit by watching bhakti satsang in morning, daily soaps in afternoon and evening, followed by news at night.
Big city: DTH TV with more than 200 channels, great picture and sound quality is available in every house, but no one has time to watch TV.
NO 4 #
Small city: You know in and out of your neighbor. Even remember their relative’s names.
Big city: Don’t even know the full name of the person living next door.
NO 5 #
Small city: On festivals many dishes are prepared at home, friends & family eats together at home.
Big city: On festivals family goes out to have homemade style traditional food in restaurants.
NO 6 #
Small city: While going out with small babies, bags are used to keep baby food, water, diapers etc.
Big city: While going out with small babies, bags are used to keep the baby (baby sling).
NO 7 #
Small city: Going to cinema or restaurant is luxury. Planning starts weeks before this outing and full family gets in their best attire for this outing.
Big city: Going to cinema or restaurant is a routine. You can easily find people coming to multiplex in their shorts or pajamas.
NO 8 #
Small city: Two hours of travel take you to some relative’s place in neighboring city.
Big city: Two hours of travel take you to your office every day.
PS: If you come across any more differences, feel free to comment :).
