My Village (Somewhere In India)

Life in a village in India

Hi… I live in a small village in India. The population of my village is around 300.

How’s the day starts? People wake up early in the morning and start roaming in the streets. My day starts with a cup of tea and with the songs of the chirping of birds. I love to watch the sunrise and doing worship in the morning. People are already doing their works in the fields. Some people in my village are farmers and some are part-time farmers(with another job). But they all do farming. They just love their fields and their crops and their pets. Every house has a water connection but still, people prefer to drink water from the village well. Life in a village is simple. Sometimes I feel it’s boring doing the same stuff every day like take care of pets and farming. But looking at people doing their works with love and with the same energy, I can say LIFE in a village is simple and beautiful. It’s free from pollution. Breathing in fresh air is a blessing that people in cities missed from their runaway life.

The weather is pleasant in the villages. It’s hot and cold according to the seasons but still, there is no need to use ac and cooler. In summers the air in the big cities is also hot. But in villages the air is cool. It gives you a lively feeling in the summer. I love butterflies flying here and there around me, mostly in the spring. When we do breakfast and lunch, sparrows come to join. It just made my day when I’m at home.

If we compare then villages and cities are different. Cities have their advantages and villages are different from cities. For example, in my village, we don’t have many shops. We can’t buy all the things whenever we want.

What do I love about my village? Every home in the village has its own courtyard. In villages, children can play with the mud and leaves of trees. People are connected with nature. I found people in the village are more honest and more hardworking. They help each other when needed.

What’s funny? If you are doing something, for example, if you are sweeping in the courtyard then people crossing from there asks you “Are you sweeping (jhaadu laga rahe ho)?” and you reply “yes, I’m sweeping( haanji, laga rahe)”. I found this funny but it’s the way to make a connection always when people met.

There are not as many facilities in the villages as in the cities. But villages are developing.

I love to go to cities for some time but for me, home a permanent.

Look at these pictures and that’s the life in a village. All photos are of somewhere around my village.
