Village Tour India

So you think you've seen everything? 

In our opinion, one has not seen real India until they have not seen an Indian village & lived with the local folks. As more and more youth start looking for job, they start moving towards cities. However, still a large number of population live in villages. The villages of India are its soul. Discover how off the record village life is unlike anything you've ever seen. Breathe fresh air and live in local home. Watch women doing their daily chores in a manner you've never seen.

The villages are socially knit together. Every evening the villagers assemble in the village "Chopal" with their 'hukkas' and chatting and talking goes on till late the night. Most of the people who live in villages are farmers, other works as potters, carpenters, blacksmith. Bull's are used for farming and other activity in field. Women work planting the rice paddy, while the men work pulling bullock carts, tilling new soil etc.

Shimla – The Mother Nature

My journey to Shimla started 3 years back, when I rejected an offer letter from a reputed software company in Hyderabad & got admission in masters in Himachal Pradesh University, nestled among the lush green deodar & pine forests of Shimla.
Although I got fascinated by the beauty of the place at the first sight but the city also looked alien to me as I belong to a Punjabi family & people there seemed very calm & culture too is bit different. Ohh… how can I forget to mention that Shimla is also home to some very beautiful girls and that gave me another reason to stay at this beautiful place. ;)

After six months I had many friends, as Himachalis are very friendly, polite & down to earth people. We spent almost every day on the shadowed roads, eating butter bun & tea, watching white mist rising up from the pine forest & toy train passing through it. I used to get up early to the chirping of birds & whispering of wind through the deodar trees and evenings were spent in the small wooden shops which serve hot pakoras with chai. A sheer pleasure was watching sunset from the hill top & listening to my favorite classical music.

After 2 years, when we passed out from the university, the city didn't let me leave her. I can never forget this beautiful land, the love of people & colorful culture. I owe something to this land & will try to pay it by helping in sustainable tourism activities.

I advice all the travelers to Shimla, that don’t abuse my beautiful land like “there is nothing in Shimla” or something like that. Don’t visit it like a traveler who just litters here & there and destroy the beauty of a place. But visit like a son visiting his Mother Nature. It will ponder you with all her love & blessings. Try to reach the heart of this place; it has lot more to offer.

Hope you all will help me in caring our Mother Nature. :)
