plight to deal with, cities have their own deficiencies nonetheless. Most people who live in the cities still struggle with the basic necessities of life like water, shelter, food, and health and sanitation facilities among many other problems. Along with this, the cities are still troubled with infrastructure disorders. No playgrounds for growing children, lack of efficient public transport system, bad traffic, and hopeless roads leading to accidents, overcrowded houses and badly maintained footpaths, public parks are just some of the many issues.
