Q1. Where is your hometown?
My hometown, Malout, is located in Punjab, on the northern side of India.
Q2. Is it easy to travel around your hometown?
Yes, though it is a small city, there are different kinds of transportation (bus, train) available.
Q3. What do you like about it?
Malout is a small city with excellent food, different kind of shops and showrooms and entertainment places. It is becoming more economically developed, as well. Most importantly, I brought up in Malout. Therefore, many of my childhood memories were with it.
Q4. What do you not like about it?
Environmental problems such as air pollution, noise pollution are increasing day by day. And I guess another problem is that there is a lack of public transport connections. Bus routes are not available for every place. So. these are the things which I do not like.
Q5. What do people in your town do?
Well, people are indulged in different small as well as in big businesses, but agriculture is common in my hometown.
Q6. How could your hometown be improved?
As I said, my hometown is small, and there are various types of transportation available, but still, people face some problems because bus service is only available between from 5:00 am to 6:00 pm, and it gets increasingly challenging to commute, especially for those people who are working late at night. So, my hometown bus service will be improved if our city authorities increase the service time and routes.
Q7. How often do you visit your hometown?
About four times a year, I visit my hometown. Because I am studying in Chandigarh, it is not possible to visit my hometown regularly. It will be not only costly for me if I visit my hometown every day, but time-wasting also because it is about 5 to 6 hours journey.
Q8. Has your hometown changed much since you were a child?
Yes, It has changed enormously. Now there are many new facilities (tall buildings, shopping mall, theatre) are available. Apart from it, people are changing their simple shops into big showrooms.
Q9. Do you think you will continue living there for a long time?
I wish I would continue living there for a long time, but I am planning to shift abroad for my further studies so, it is difficult to live there.
Q10. Is your hometown the right place to bring up children?
Yes and no. There are various entertainment options such as cinema, parks, playgrounds and swimming pools for children in Malout. The government also provides many free services to children( primary education, health treatment).
