India through my eyes - rustic life


While returning from Daroji, we stopped by at a small village near Hampi to have tea. The locals gathered around us and the mothers asked us to take photographs of their kids. They were extremely happy to see the photographs and within minutes, the entire village, which probably consists of a few houses had gathered around us. As I left the hamlet , I saw the happy faces of these people and told myself that happiness is not that elusive after all.

one thing I have learnt from my first trip(on work but had to travel a bit) alone is that we make someone smile even without putting any sort of specific effort. :)

whenever i visit rural/remote areas and meet & interact with the people...im convinced that there is so much goodness still in this world and innocence.....
have just returned from a trip to orissa, travelling through villages and forests and it was refreshing to interact with the people there!!

Life has its real meaning there without being polluted by inevitable requirements of fast moving external world. Yes! It seems Rustic but Realistic which rests lost!!
