Describe a city that you are familiar with.
I have been living in (..say your city name…) for the last 15 years and know almost every street of this city. The city I knew the first time I came here is far more different than the city has evolved now. The north part of the city has changed more than any part of the city and still changing.
When I first visited this part of the city, it was mostly an open space that had lots of fields, trees and very minimum number of dwellers. There were hardly any high rising building and mostly farmers and fishers lived there. The fields, lakes and people’s way of living used to give an impression which resembled to the urban area life. But this is no longer applicable for this part of the city. I went to that part of the city few days back after a long time and was very surprised to notice the changes which occurred there and still happening.
The need for industrialization, to accommodate the increasing population and for the business expansion the part has changed dramatically. The open spaces, fields, and lakes have reduced significantly and one can notice the overwhelming number of factories, industries and offices there. This place no longer gives the urban area impression rather it gives a neo industrial area. The numbers of roads and cars have increased, the farmers and fishers have moved to farther north side of the city and 2 new colleges and universities have been built there.
I feel the necessity of the new industries and offices and their importance for a country, but the way this part of the city has been transformed is really shocking. There could have been an alternative place for industries and the city administrators and authorities could have saved the natural part of the city. Already the city is over populated and because of that we are facing lots of problems, the changes of this part of the city has caused to accommodate more people and has destroyed the natural habitat of wild lives. I feel sad to notice the changes happening of this part of the city.
