Firewood is used for cooking in the village where there is supply of woods. It is economical although it can be smoky at times. The village children learn to collect and chop the woods quite naturally.
However, urbanisation and modernisation have replaced using firewood with other forms of methods for cooking. Today, it becomes very common to use gas cooker or electrical stove for cooking.
Certainly, those living in the modern society do not need to revert back to using firewood. But it would be helpful for the modern people to be aware that the present living is a result of development. They also should respect those who are living in less developed places. Although they are deprived of modern way of cooking, they are equally human beings and our friends.
