Would we benefit from living a simple Indian lifestyle?

Tilly Letch, 17

In a world where society is becoming increasingly reliant on complex technology a trip to India can put your very existence into a new perspective. Seeing the simplicity of their lifestyle initially I pitied the lack of mobile phones and fancy toys in the rural villages but by the time we returned to the cities I was sad to see the westernisation of the Indian cities. In those simple towns the people seemed truly happy and yet people in Britain who appear to have much more cannot find joy in their possessions. As our society grows increasingly spoilt the simple Indian lifestyle grows evermore appealing and yet I wonder would anyone actually give up their western lifestyle, despite how miserable it appears to make them?
