How People Are Affected By Where They Live
Nov 3, 2010

Hi everyone,

I would like to know what you think people who live in rural areas miss out on or benefit from by living there compared to people who live in the town and also how it influences decisons and their economic ways in later life.

Thanks,

Courtney Halder,
New Zealand

Hello!

I'm from Romania and in my childhood I lived in the countryside. Now, I'm living in a town. For me, the choice of living in a village or in a town depends on what you want, on your personal needs, on your way of perceiving life. So, I don't know if I could say that those who live in rural areas miss out on or benefit from by living there in comparison with those who live in the town. I think that it's very important to be aware of your needs, to know what you really want and like and this way, you will never feel that the place where you are living in brings you some losses.

Life in the contryside, at least in Romania, is a simple life. You live in harmony with nature and with animals and you have a very close relation with your neighbours and the others. You can admire there the magnificence of nature, breath fresh air, drink clean water, listen the birds chirpping or simply enjoy the quietness.

In town, life is more agitated. You have so many possibilities of spending your time because there are many cultural events.

It depends on how you want to live your life.

Though I live in a city, I have experience working with rural communities where I do field work.

In my area, rural people miss out basic social amenities and services like electricity, potable water, quality health service, quality education, motor-able roads, means of transport, toilet facilities, among several others.

On the other hand, they benefit from communal labour and vast farmlands. Their common source of entertainment is sex, and as a result, there is high birth rates in these areas.

Most of the rural people who are able to complete their tertiary education seek jobs in the cities, reluctant to go back home. Others send their girl-children to towns & cities to seek greener pastures who return with fatherless children (teenage pregnancies) and deadly diseases.

I live in Indonesia and there's a lot of culture here.

Many traditions and ancient seremonial implementated in, so this affected people who live in Indonesia.

Dear Courtney Halder ,

I think that , in rural areas also gets its benefit such breathing fresh air , eating fresh vegatables which we grow , drinking clean water , not similar to tap water uses chemical to clear water affecting our health . Beside , in rural areas or remote areas also develop family economy to enrich , not just in city gets ability to do . on the other hand , expression of neighbour in rural areas often attach together more than city , life in here is not constant hurrying , we will spend so much time talking ralatives , friends . but life in rural areas is the same meaning with miss out on benefit such as quality education , health service , means of transport . It depends on each person 's personal needs . In anywhere , it also gets its advantages and disadvantages

From a village in a valley ...
Jun 4, 2012

Watching the jackdaws is an inevitable pastime - they live out their lives all around me. In the trees to the north and west, and on chimneystacks in the east and south. Nesting in the air vents and spare chimneys of our house, they confirm the fact that any building becomes part of the landscape. No escape.
Congregating and dispersing to some subtle and complex tune I can't hear, sailing effortless or battling the wind, I often wonder what logic determines their flights, and whether when huddled behind the shelter of a chimneypot, they feel as disgruntled as they look.


It could be the mild autumn giving rise to a plague of parasites, and as yet there are few active chimneys for smoking out the fleas, but certainly the choreography has undergone an eerie change of late. Roosting in pairs, they usually perch a couple of feet apart so that wings can be stretched without acrimony, but recently a new togetherness has become the rule, and much mutual preening goes on as they now perch shoulder to shoulder.
This outbreakof avian solidarity has me wondering if they know something about 2012 that I don't, -- a question which is answered in the mere act of phrasing it, since I know nothing, and they know everything they need.

This colony is by no means isolated, but part of a larger cohesive society. Not for jackdaws our clinging to tribal insularity - though territorial, they are connected and interconnected, and a great deal of visiting is the norm.
Some days other colonies come winging through the mist, and set up several temporary headquarters in adjacent woodlands. Then the emissaries begin, singly and in groups, to move between the various focal points, the air not only sustaining their wings, but serving as the vehicle for their calls which continue throughout the day. These occasions have an air of purpose, an atmosphere of conference and resolve for the Corvid cause. To call it a parliament would give the idea, but these aerial activities reveal a beauty and dignity which differentiate them from the actions of our politicians.

Not that they need to voice their thoughts, for this is no disorganised rabble but a composite being, able to operate on both the individual and the collective level, a group able to take flight as one without discernible cause. Viewing them as mere individuals only indicates my own frequent lack of awareness and the continuing legacy of my hubristic humanity. We are all connected, -- ask the Jackdaws.
Surely there is something for me to learn from their perfect synchrony of the collective and the individual, using the benefits of each while I often suffer the worst of both worlds? Wouldn't it be easier to love my neighbour, if my life were truly illuminated by the awareness that we are all made of the same stuff, and part of the same thing ?



Although they feel an enmity borne of old, I still try to gain their favour, and convince them of my inhuman kindness, my willingness to share the world gladly with them. My offerings however, cut no ice with the corvid. Brief eye-contact tells me they are all too aware of the activities of my species, and as one of that group, I am still feared and avoided with the rest.
But what they give me, is so much more valuable than the bread I give them.
We are all connected.
Ask the jackdaws.

I think there is a distinction between people that live in rural areas and those that live in cities. Citites are filled with people that are stressed out about what surrounds them, those that live in the country live a more laidback and peaceful life. (This is just my opinion and what I have noticed). I would think that those that live in cities are a lot more focused on heavy consumption.

Each area has its pros and cons. Coming from the city myself, I find that I really appreciate the stillness and quite when I spend time away in more rural areas.

And while I appreciate and enjoy rural spaces, I feel as though city life has played a larger impact in the person I am today.

There is the notion that architecture speaks and that the billings and environments that surround you promote certain activities and it is a notion i ascribe to. While in the city, I am more productive and general live life at an accelerated pace. This pace doesn't bother me mostly because it has been ingrained, while the slowness and calm of rural surroundings leaves me lagging. As a friend from a rural town told me, just being in Toronto stresses him out, probably because the pace was to ingrained.

To close, there is no one better scenario, they're just different, but i do believe your surroundings profoundly shape you.

People are affected by where they live. Sometimes dedcrimination do set in from the people that live in the urban region towards the people living in a rural areas, this lead to low self exteem and self discrimination on the part of those living in rural areas. Also those living in rural areas are not exposed to social-economic standards, dey lack good Job opportunities and sound education.i think youth in the rural areas should be reached out to, they need to be aware of some health issues.some times if u look at the percentage of Youth dat get affected each day due to health issues like HIV/AID and also Hepatitis and older health problems its really high among them cos dey are affected by lack of good communication from the urban people on the preventive measures, ways of taking care of one's self when u find yourself in such situations. So i believe where u live has a great influence in our life.

Living environment has big effects on a person life. In Vietnam, we has an idiom like this " Gần mực thì đen, gần đèn thì rạng". this means when you live in a good environment, you will have good behaviors, good thinking, and people around you affect u as well. But, in contrast, if the place you live is not good, you also be "roll with the wind" and somehow have not very good sense on your mind.

I would say people form rural areas are more down-to-earth and have fewer but better social contacts. I guess they're more like easy-going than the city's people.
