It is very unfortunate but true that,People in US & Europe are in search of Peace of Mind, while people of underdeveloped Nations are in search of Piece of Bread...hence there is mind set difference....After all everybody will follow " Geeta."

I hate cities. Too constipated for my liking. I dunno, I have no qualms about cities such as Shanghai, Vang Vieng, Hanoi etc., but Indian cities are simply way too feudal on entertainment for my liking. And too many bans on entertainment in cities. Rural India offers a much more lax environment for a man to unwind himself w/o facing any social or legal moral guardian induced BS. I have multiple offers to resettle in Mumbai which will see me make at least Rs. 15 lakh per annum in trades, but oh well, I still love Palakkad n' Kalikkavalai :) Urban India was awesome & THE place to be in 60s and 70s (provided you hanged out w/ loafers lol) but modern urban India has way too many bans on rest & recreation, sort of like Feudalistic Europe.

People with money move out of rotting old housing around city centres to the newly-developed suburbs with brand new schools, shopping malls, etc. When the city housing is redeveloped with luxurious modern construction, those who can afford it move back into the city. The areas with old run-down housing stock are also rife with criminals and in European cities are often ghettoes inhabited by recent immigrants. (Many inner-city schools have 100% migrant students. Hence white-flight!)

Yes it indicates that there has been no all round development and hence can be termed as underdeveloped nations
