Migration not the Sign of Modernization and Development

In developing countries, people flock to capital cities for better opportunities. India is no exception to it. These migrations, sometimes willingly and sometimes unwillingly, have obvious but very simple reasons. There are hardly a few cities that have basic amenities and can offer opportunities that can satisfy the needs and expectation of people. Globalization and flow of information has increased this flow and government has coupled this trend. Also for many consider that migration from villages to cities is the sign of modernization and development both. Though, I am hardly convinced. The reasons I find is the failure of governments to respond to the needs of the people and it is the only government who is to blame. And yes migration to cities is not sign of modernization and development but an escape route.
