Thoughts- Rural or Urban stories

I asked a writer,'Are there any books written in a rural context? for the children.' 'Most of the books,' I mentioned 'are written in an urban context.'

Spending a year in rural schools, I discovered that only a few publications like Pratham, Tulika, and a few other houses come out with books with a rural context.

'If you write for rural context, you miss out on urban people.' If you write for urban people, you miss out on rural people. Anyway, everyone needs to progress to the urban scenario' she mentioned.  Do we all need to progress to the urban scenario? Does knowledge of rural stories are not worth to read?
