1. BREATHTAKING BEAUTY
A tiny swirling stream, a dusty path and the rustle of a few leaves. It’s all quite alluring, isn’t it? Take up any Indian village, and it would prove to be a second-to-none candidate for your beautiful stills or hearty candids.
2. PEACEFUL SCENES
Every time you would pay attention, you won’t hear much except the chirping of birds, occasional whispers or laughs, some sounds that dogs and cows make at the most. It’s melodious and liberating.
3. PLAIN EXISTENCE
Within a week at most, you will experienced life being led in the simplest way possible. People waking up at dawn and sleeping by dusk still do exist, and you’ll find them here. For once, you may not see but feel life within the acres and acres of land.
4. RAW DELIGHTS
Come and taste chulhe ki roti, or makkhan, or even unadulterated milk. Come and try unsequined ghagra-choli, or a plain khadi kurta. Then you most probably would understand what I mean by living without embellishments.
5. SOCIAL VOLUNTEERING
Help if you want to, then and there. See a woman nurturing a baby without and constant source of income, or notice an old man sitting by himself the whole day? Contribute that instant if you feel like it, without first signing up at 3-4 NGO’s for it and help as it counts.
6. TINY TALES
The stories you would’ve gathered to tell, in a limited amount of days, can actually surprise you. From a child’s funny laugh to the walk of a certain dame, you will gather more memories than you thought of.
7. SENSATIONAL INSPIRATIONS
A jarred door, a blooming flower, a rustling leaf. Looks like a good enough painting to us. Soft winds, quiet giggles, eager chirps together create the perfect melody. Story of the young couple who just got married? You won’t ever fall short of inspiration here.
8. ENGAGING HISTORY
India has a momentous and interesting history, and it’s villages share the same. Many significant movements have their establishments in villages itself, and if you choose wisely, you may stand upon one of them.
