Pakistan is an agricultural country. About 70% of the population depends upon agriculture directly or indirectly. All these people are living in villages. Village life in our country has its own blessings and problems. We can easily compare it with the city life.
Village Life is very simple, sincere and frank. People living there, have no artificiality and no hypocrisy. Their joys and sorrows are very simple and their needs of life are also limited. They have no high ambitions of life and lead a contented life. They enjoy real peace of mind because they are free from the unnecessary worries and responsibilities of life.
Life in a village is also very peaceful. It is free from the dust and noise of traffic as well as the smoke and dust produced by the factories. The villagers can enjoy fresh air, open sunshine and the beautiful scenes of nature like the green fields, tall hills, murmuring streams, chirping birds, etc, there is no fear of adulteration as faced by the people living in cities.
However, village life in Pakistan is not without draw-backs. Most of the villages are far away from the cities and market. They are not linked with the cities by roads and railway lines. There are no facilities of transport, electricity, hospital and telephone. Many of the villages in our country are still without any school for boys and girls. Un-employment is also there in village because uneducated people cannot get any job or chances of progress like the people living in cities.
The government of Pakistan has been ignoring people in village for long time. We cannot become an advanced country by keeping our villagers poor and backward. The banks should also open branches in villages to provide easy loan to the farmers. In this way there will be a revolution in the life of the farming community.
