Farmers were watering their fields and the women were providing the cattle with chaff. Near the village tank, the women were washing clothes and many clothes were hung to dry. I was asked to visit the village again to which I readily agreed.
It was a joyful sight to see the village-urchins bathing near the tank while splashing water at each other. I stayed in the countryside village for almost a week and returned home with many joyful memories of the country life. It was a wonderful journey and visit to the countryside.
After having food, I went to sleep on the cot which was prepared for me.
I woke up very early in the morning to witness the sun rise. After having a breakfast of milk and toast, we headed out to visit the village.
The sugarcane fields encompassed quite many a miles as we walked.
I saw a group of people preparing ‘gur’, a delicacy.
They had a joint family and lived in a huge ancestral house.
As I was tired from my journey, my friend’s mother offered me food. It was a welcome change to see that there was no kind of formality of any kind.
In a free space, whenever we feel like, we can easily go for a walk outside our house.
The dense urban landscape is populated only by people, and there is a scarcity, and even non-existence of vegetation and animal life.
