I recently had the opportunity to spend a few days in a small town in India… A good break from the monotony and drudgery of city life left me energized and revitalized.
My random notes below:
Quality of Air
Highly polluted and Impure
Clean and fresh
Cost of Living
High. E.g.: On an average weekly vegetables cost Rs. 1000
Remarkably Low. E.g.: On an average weekly vegetables cost Rs. 120
Low – Medium
Mode of Payment for any purchase
Primarily Cards – Credit cards, Debit cards [Electronic payments]….
General Happiness Quotient
Low… Most of the times, people are cribbing about a zillion things which they don’t have or which they desire
High… Most of the times, people appeared to be happy and content, inspite of not really having even 30% of the things which people in the metros have access to
How people live?
In the e-world [electronic world]. Everything is almost virtual apart from the basics of life
In the real world! And that makes an ocean of difference in one’s view of themselves and their life
