There goes a famous saying that “God made the country and man made the town”. Village life here is very different from city life. It is free from the troubles and problems we have in the city. First of all, we find village life to be quiet. No noisy factories run in the village to disturb us. The village is without the endless traffic of cars, buses and motorcycles. That is so confusion in the city. The village is near to nature and thus near to God. We find clean and fresh air around the village free from the smoke of factories, buses and machines. There are open fields all around where we can breath clean air .But the inner part of the village are often not clean. Villagers work hard but only during sowing and harvesting seasons. Men go to the fields early in the morning and women start working in their homes .Women cook food, look after children and wash clothes. They even provide food to the animals in the house or milk them. The health of villagers is generally quite satisfactory. It is so because they eat pure food and take a lot of exercise. Village life is not as pleasant as it should be villagers do not have many of those facilities that we enjoy in the cities .In villages we can not find well-equipped hospitals and good schools. We do not find drainage systems worth the name in most of our villages. Not can we have any multipurpose supermarkets, stores and shops in villages. Still, village life has its own charm and attractions. Though sweet and simple, our village is backward. Villagers do not have many of the facilities that city people enjoy. It is necessary to make the life of our villagers better. More than 80 percent or perhaps more then it, villagers are uneducated. The Schools we find in the rural areas do not provide proper education. Many villages still do not have electricity. So a great number of villagers can not use electric fans or watch TV. The water supply in the most of our village is not up to the mark. Our villagers take water out of the well or get it from canals. Many villagers fall ill when they drink impure canal water. Villagers have to travel on bad and rough roads. They live in very small, dark houses often made of mud. No doubt there are disputes in villages about land, properties and canal water. Villagers get angry very soon. When anyone acts against any tradition they mind it very much. On the whole, village life is close to nature. Government should impose condition on every well educated person to spend some days in a village every year, so that they can understand the difficulties of the villagers and try to solve them.
It is said that an empty mind is devil’s workshop. The moment we sit idle devil starts instilling evil in our minds. So it is always better to do something constructive in our spare time. Anything that we do in our spare time is called our hobby. It does give us pleasure, peace of mind and satisfaction. People adopt different hobbies according to their age, taste and temperament. Stamp or coin collecting, music, movies and hiking are some hobbies that people usually adopt. All these have the own good or bad aspects. But I think that book reading is far better than all these hobbies. It covers all the aspects of man’s life and provides both knowledge and pleasure. One must be careful in selecting books. Some books are more dangerous than scorpions and more poisonous than snakes. Such books pollute our minds and contaminate our souls. We should read only such books as illuminate our minds and purify our souls. I have a small library in my house. I have collected a number of books on different topics, politics, religion, Urdu and English literature, science and general knowledge. All these books have been bought with the pocket money that my parents give me every month. I also buy an English newspaper daily and read it at least for one hour. It helps me to improve my English and my knowledge about national and international affairs. I keep...
