Formation of a City

Let us see how a city is formed.Government takes an initiative to form a city.It starts with developing Special Economic Zone (SEZ) .Where a land is leased out to interested companies at an economical rate.Industries flourish in these areas and government takes care of basic amenities like water and electricity.As more industries start working in these SEZ's need for man power rises.Companies go on hiring spree.People from villages and small town come to city for better opportunities.This is their chance to be a part of growing economy.City is a place where they see their dreams come true.It provides them with not only job assurance but also steady income to sustain their families.
Eventually more people come to grab piece of a pie.As number of new people starts pouring in other things also start developing.New buildings,shops,malls,hospitals,schools come up.To sustain these proliferation government provides with better infrastructure like roads and transport improves.
Purchasing power of people rises and so does their daily needs.
People coming from different places folk together and it becomes a cosmopolitan place.Thus city is formed.I am part of such a formation called "Bangalore".


  1. I wish the cities were a bit more planned.

    Like each company having a colony (company quarters/flats) adjacent to its office building.

    The list can go on.

  2. Btw, now I am a part of "Bangalore" too. :D

  3. Short n Sweet. But a lot of such planned cities probably never came into existence im sure. :)
