Solution

Anish: Hello, Omkar!
Omkar: Hello, Anish! It is so nice to see you after such a long time.
Anish: Yes, many years have passed since we last met. It is good to see you too. How have you been?
Omkar: I've been doing well. After high school, I started assisting my father on the farm. Farming is my occupation now.
Anish: I'm glad to hear that. You know, Omkar, I see a lot of changes in the village. A big concrete building stands in the place of our old school.
Omkar: Yes, a lot of developmental projects have been carried out here.
Anish: I see. That is why the greenery has reduced. I can't spot any of the trees that we used to climb as children.
Omkar: Yes, those trees were cut down to make a place for a few factories.
Anish: I don't think it's right to cut down trees to build factories that would cause pollution.
Omkar: You are right. But a lot of things have changed in the past few years. The muddy and twisted paths have been replaced with roads made of tar, the two huge grounds in the village are now factory sites. The marketplace has also changed. It is now an endless row of shops as opposed to the cluster of carts that it used to be.
Anish: Wow! That is why it seems as if I've come to a completely different place. Do you remember how we used to chase each other all around the village?
Omkar: Hahaha! Yes, but that is history now. The increasing traffic on these new roads does not allow for a person to walk freely anymore. However, I do miss those days. We could roam around freely, without having to be on the lookout for vehicles speeding down the road.
Anish: I agree. Also, is there a college in the village now?
Omkar: Yes, and there is a good primary healthcare centre with qualified doctors and nurses.
Anish: That's very nice.
Omkar: Although a lot of these changes are good for us, I don't like the way they have altered our life.
Anish: I think so too. The village does not look like a village anymore. The extensive fields, the greenery, the humble houses - they are all gone! Everything seems dull and grey now, just like an urban city.
Omkar: Yes, even I miss the lush green fields and the open spaces. It appears as though this development has taken the life out of our village.
Anish: I wish we could go back to the good old days and enjoy them again.
Omkar: Well, that's one dream that will never come true. But at least we had the opportunity to experience the scenic beauties of this place, long before it was modernised.
Anish: I completely agree. We still have memories of those bygone decades. I should get going now. Bye!
Omkar: Bye!
