I had a chance of visiting ma grandma’s home which is a typical village where we can find all sorts of old customs. I loved being there though I had some different experiences. I was used to city traditions of doing things from morning till evening. But when you go to such kind of villages you might feel surprised and some kind of nostalgic feeling. It’s because there are lots of things that turns you on from our lifestyle. Let me list it down:
I was used to get up around 7 am in my place. But there people used to get up early morning at 5 am and begin their routine works. Kinda difficult for me coz those people doest stop by themselves getting up, they force us to get up too 😦
I haven’t seen the sky so beautiful and felt the fresh air touch my skin making me feel so energetic in my place. I used to come out of ma home only after 9. Its weird actually but this is what happens to most of the people living in cities.
I saw greeneries wherever I turn around in village. So much pleasing to eyes watching plants and the due drops on the leaves and flowers and the tiny plants that took up its head for a new beginning. Nature is really lovely 🙂 . In ma place greeneries are only seen in televisions rarely 😦
What the hell is this??? I cannot see houses as far as I could see. During night time I was just freaking out by the solitude home stay and the weird sounds of frogs and many other unknown creatures. I was hell-stuck in the night time and for sure I haven’t slept even a single minute. But that was quiet a different experience in daytime as I started enjoying the solitude staying. Coz in cities we could see houses build clustered and roads congested. But it’s totally a different world out here.
The best and final thing is the people out there. Where are they from?? So much of love, care and affection from each and every single people I look at though we are not related to each other. Their innocent and childish hearts attracted me and I felt sad leaving that place.
I had a bit of experience for being in a heaven though it was for just a single day. Am not sure whether I would go to heaven after my death but am sure I had experienced how staying at heaven would feel like.
Below are few shots I took with my mobile…
This was the first shot i took when i got up at 5.30 am…
This is the grass you can see which was around the house…
This was the side view of a beautiful sunrise from the house…
These are the coconut trees that are grown before the house… Cute nah 🙂
Its the Watermelon !!!
Its the watermelon plant grown over the roof of the store room…
This is the picture i took at 6 am… Can you find the difference between half an hour before sunrise and after sunrise? Such a lovely scene 🙂
Finally i have to say you all one simple yet valuable thought… Please do visit your grandparents in villages which might take you to heaven and also make them happy 🙂 🙂 🙂
I happened to visit a relative’s place a few days before for the funeral of my Uncle. I don’t have much attachment towards him or his family which may be of various reasons which will be hard to make it clear in a single post. So lemmie pass on to the post details.
I happened to be there for about two days. Apart from the various rituals and happenings around me i was been fascinated to capture few pictures as the place and the village was good actually. I also took a few pic’s of the pets at the house without anyone’s knowledge 🙂
This pretty lady was afraid of me i guess 😛 She took her babies out of my sight as soon as i neared them for clicking pic's 🙂 So cute 🙂
These lads were playing their interesting ( something of a secret) game unaware of me clicking their pic 🙂
These pets were bought up with one and only intention of killing it for food ( Sad right). Yeah in villages people grow up a number of Hens, Chicks and Goats for making it a food for their special occasions at times. Its sad to see these creatures and i felt pity for their short life 😦 😦 But there’s nothing i could do with these as the people wont ever hear me or stop eating these poor little pets…
The below given is the picture of a plant which produces a seed and people of these area used to add this seed to their gravy and make Sundaikkai Pullikulambu. The taste of the gravy will be actually mouth watering but these seeds will be bitter like Bitter-guard. Have to adjust with it as it has a high healthy aspect 😉
But to my great disappointment i was not allowed by my mother to take pictures as it might create a bad impression on me. So i returned home with disappointment and decided at-least to take few more pic’s the next time i go there 🙂 .
