The development of cities and increasing urbanisation in India has transformed the Indian society and culture. A change in terms of occupation, living standards, thinking, education, culinary preferences etc is apparent.
Cities, which are the hub of trade and commerce, attract everyone as growth rate here is higher as compared to small towns and villages. The wish to live a better life results in internal migration. People migrate from town and villages to cities and even from one city to another. But all the cities in India do not enjoy equal growth and you may find it difficult to adjust. All you have to do is to prioritise the reason to migrate and then choose the best option.
