Tired of the variety of honks that wake you up in the morning? The pollution that suffocates you on your way to work? Or the lapses in water and electricity supply due to some easily preventable problems?
This is just a glimpse of the issues that trouble us on a day-to-day basis in today’s urban life, and they are only stated to get worse in the coming future. The deterioration of quality of life continues, and it’s time to reduce our role in this process.
Here are five reasons why you should quit modern city life and opt for a self-sustained city:
To Live a Life of Leisure
From travelling to work and toiling at work, we barely give ourselves enough time to focus on our personal lives and the things that allow us to rejuvenate. A self-sustained city is built with an infrastructure that not only eases your commute to work but also provides easy access to all household necessities. Moreover, there are tons of amenities that can keep you engaged or let you relax depending on your preferred leisure activity.
To Provide A New Life For Our Children
As a generation, we have seen our play areas become buildings and our childhood days of cycling replaced with traffic-filled streets. Our children, however, are stuck on their Playstations and iPhones as they lack these same avenues that allow them to express their playfulness. With amenities like a play area, swimming pools and many other sporting facilities, a self-sustaining city lets your kids run around acres of space, play without many restrictions, and even have the convenience of having a good school nearby.
To Live a Safe Life
Crime rates have shot up in cities all across India and it’s getting harder to curb them as newer masses keep flowing into the city day by day. A self-sustained city takes care of safety with the help of precautions like a strongly manned security system, electronic surveillance with night vision cameras, and safety features such as bus bays, crosswalks and safety railings to prevent all kinds of mishaps. The greatest assurance, however, comes from the fact that every person that you see around you isn’t a stranger but a neighbour and a part of the same community.
To Have a Lifetime Supply Of Good Resources
One of the most striking things about cities is the lack of quality in all of its resources - be it air, water, electricity or space - whereas a self-sustaining city lets people experience the shade of trees, breathe cleaner air, and even have a well-planned water and electricity supply system that serves only the population of that city. This helps you lead a lifestyle that doesn’t involve breathing polluted air, or bathing in hard, untreated water.
To Have A New Societal Life
“I’m stuck in my neighbourhood”, simply isn’t a phrase you’ll be using in a self-sustaining city, as the whole city is your neighbourhood. Meet like-minded people, pursue your interests and interact with people of all ages while having many amenities that can shape how you spend your evenings with the people around you. The people living in self-sustaining cities thus form a community that has a strong sense of belonging, a common sense of responsibility and a whole new culture altogether.
Embassy Springs, Bangalore’s biggest and best planned city is one such self-sustained township that offers all of this and more. So look no further, it is the perfect choice for your future lifestyle.
