It cause people in village like to eat natural meal more than fast food with much of chemist ingredients inside like urban people. In addition, parent more care to their children, so they will get a good behavior, humble and respectful person.

Nonetheless, there were a number of disadvantages. They could not get good formal education because almost people had to work in farm or field. Sometimes, young people are ambitious, they had to move to the city. Also, when someone got ill, it would be a long way to reach the hospital.
