"If you had all the money in the world and the freedom to do whatever you want, what would you do?" we asked her "I would be right here doing whatever I am doing" she said. - A woman named Kunzang Dolma from a village called Stakmo, Ladakh

The Ladakhis were a different kind. Their villages talk a different language when compared to the city that is slowly giving in to the promises of progress and change. Their mountains - beautiful and sad at the same time. It seems in the beginning as if they had no sense of time, letting it drift at its own pace; living life as it comes.
Maybe there are a few things we fail to learn as mere tourists in a space that is entirely foreign to us. This trip was more about observing, digging deeper and understanding a land that is so strange and beautiful in its own way.

It was an amazing ten days filled with immense learning. Blogs and photographs on this experience of a lifetime are on their way. I thank everyone who supported and contributed to the campaign from the bottom of my heart. This would not have been possible without your help.

@wandering_dreamcatcher throwing some on culture...😊 If you have something to share with the world, DM us 😊 😊

@Regrann from @wandering_dreamcatcher - During the Panchbootha Aradhana at the Isha Ashram, Vellangiri, Tamil Nadu. The Vellangiri mountains are called the Kailash of the South. This whole place reverberates with the chants of Om Namah Shivaya as the monks sit in prayer in the huge meditation halls there. It is a place of magic. It is a place my heart finds solace and peace.This is a place where the Wandering Dreamcatcher wanders no more. She becomes still in contemplative contentment.

Resuming Instagrameen weekly feature and hope it continues for a few years if not forever.

A few guidelines to get featured:

1. Hashtag your rural India pictures with #Instagrameen. Feel free to tag me in the post so that I don't miss it.
2. Before tagging, please understand that tier 2 or tier 3 towns aren't considered rural. It has to be a village and it would be great if you know the name of the village.
3. It should be a good quality picture. If you don't want to post on your Instagram handle or if it's a private account, you can e-mail it to me on swsaxena26@gmail.com
4. There should be at least a 100 word story with the pic.

I'll select a few and post one each week here on my account.
This one is from Dubauliya in Basti, Uttar Pradesh.
River - Saryu.

PRADAN was felicitated at the #InclusiveFinanceIndiaSummit, organised by the ACCESS Development Services, for its leadership role in stewarding the SHG movement for the past 30 years. Thanks a lot, ADS and all stakeholders for the enabling environment created for a robust SHG movement in the country. We receive this citation in the name of the countless frontline workers and their organisations who have believed in #ruralwomen and have nurtured the millions of groups that dot the countryside today. We also celebrate the enormous zeal and wisdom of the crores of women who have with the help of their groups charted out a new pathway to progress.

An evening scene from one of the #villages I was crossing recently.

There are very less sources of #transportation facilities here. They depend mostly on bullock carts and cycles. Mainly you will find them #walking for miles and sometimes with heavy loads on their heads, be it men or women.

They walk each day for collecting fuels for cooking, bathing in ponds, working on fields, grazing their cattles. And that equals to a lot of #hardwork in a day. ..

They asked us to paint our stories of love; not romantic but well. The romance one seeks in work because do we live outside of our work? Do we not live while we work? Is life one silo and work another? I've never quite romanticised the idea of work-life balance/duality. :=) I bet none of these people at goStops do either looking at how they work. They ideated this beautiful theme of love for their new hostel at Agra and handed over to us 5 rooms knowing that we have probably never done anything apart from scribbling cuss words on them. Nonetheless, I'm glad I could paint some stories; mine but more importantly, those of people I work with. Stories that define who I am today.
I hope the Hidden Orchestra in this room plays different tunes(conversations) for all the listeners(residents) of this dormitory and reminds us all of where our food comes from as well as of the injustice meted out to farmers across the country and globally.
Thank you for having us over @smilesnashish & @gostops. And, thank you for letting us talk through these walls.

@_thevedi_, thank you for helping me paint.

In my previous post I forgot to mention about these kids when I was mentioning about the mid day meal program.

The kids were very surprised to see the camera and a thrill of excitement ran through them when we clicked their photos.

The smiles and rejoice on their faces were impeccable. And, Seeing them I felt so contented but the meals on their plates ceased me to smile.

The Mid day meal scheme of the government schools aims to improve the nutritional status of school age children in the country.

But still, there are few places where lack of infrastructure and poor maintainance of hygiene leads to more severe problems.

Along with this, we also need strict inspection in terms of hygiene, nutritional standards and most importantly the manners while eating which the little kids will learn and follow afterwards.

Paddy is the single annual crop in the drought prone, semi arid land of Purulia. You can see the standing dried stubble of paddy, fields after fields.

Everyone is happy with the harvest but soon the fields and the ponds will dry in next three-four months. Grazing green fields will turn barren.

Purulia has always remained in the scarcity of basic needs. These few months of happineess and festivals is all which will keep the villagers motivated.

An evening scene from TATARI village.

Women arranging fodder for their cattle.The smell of cow dung, chirping of birds and the cock-a-doodle-doo of roosters. Let me tell you the scene was one of the breathtaking beauties I experienced.

Sharing a picture from one of the villages HATHIMARA, where I visited recently.

The village is famous for its tribal wall paintings. I was totally dumbstrucked to see the huts with variety of amazing artworks. One such example is before you.

Lakhara Art Gallery at Adivasi Academy, Tejgadh, Gujarat.

Lakhara in Rathwi language (local language) means artist. An artist belonging to an uncorrupted society that reveres ecology; the politicisation & polarisation of whose Gods has been dividing & ruling them long after the colonisers left.
Politics; where the love for power has far exceeded the power of love.

More to follow in an article soon.

And the attitudinal changes thus desired are misplaced if directed at the other before the self.

Trace your own historic contribution to that anger, first. Then-you'll learn to be compassionate where it is needed & call out ignorance (that reeks of massive social privilege) where it is much more needed.

Delhi pollution is as much a result of our own doing if not more than that of the farmers who were(1)never provided even the bare minimum infrastructure to manage the crop waste(2)denied education that would assist them in devising new solutions for themselves[which is the ideal solution but ever thought where our high-end jobs would go if they learnt to do this themselves.The falling of these historical structures would be the doom of capitalism,which is not the aspiration of any capitalist, just saying]. We are hiding behind our poor in terms of per-capita carbon footprint.Our convenience is causing a deeper hole in the layers of the atmosphere than the lifestyles of farmers who actually work hard to tend plants that supply us oxygen, food & sundry other survival things.

This equation never was balanced,never will be if we keep denying the gravity of history & continue on this linear path of development charted out for us by people who lived farther from the limitations of earth. Moving to Blore coz Delhi is too polluted will turn all these cities into uninhabitable ghost cities 1 at a time. It is our lifestyles conditioned deeply into us that stand for trial today. Ofcourse, radical changes are difficult. But- I'm sick of these collective accusations against people who certainly harmed the environment less than all of us and yet suffer denigration and ridicule in peri-uban/urban; upper class; upper caste humor/media/others.

While the farmers learn to articulate their suffering over the next few decades, I'd rather not engage with the well-educated;self-consumed folk coz they demand the same emotional & mental labor from me that a sexual abuser would if I were to engage with him/her 1-1.

Abuse of all kinds thrives in silence and callous humor, or so I've learnt.

Our ignorance is our biggest privilege *ends rant as you would call it*

#instagrameen

The most striking feature of the Santal dance is that they never get tired doing this form of dance. It can go for hours and hours.

Sometimes they get so engrossed, they start it at night and it ends the next morning.

The theory behind this dance is that it relaxes the muscles, joints and thighs after the prolonged labour in the fields.

I can't resist myself from dancing on the DHAMSA beats. Each time I hear it, i get goosebumps on me.

DHAMSA is a Santhali drum like instrument which is made by the community only and played in every occasion along with MADOL, TUMDA and FLUTE.

Usually, men play the instrument and women dance on it. The beats are so powerful that they dance on it the whole night.

This is a common gathering place in the village where people come & sit together. They have discussions and meetings overhere.

In the picture, people are resting and playing LUDO after the rigorous work in their fields.

I wondered, how connected they are with limited sources of entertainment and how separated we are with infinite entertainment sources .

Hey, fellow conscious consumers! @defindia is here at India International Trade Fair, IITF 2017 with all their varied range of weaves handmade with love from @baank_e_loom @chanderiyaan @digikaladef and @musiridef

Meet us here and treat yourself to our collection from the 14th to 27th November 2017.

Children always have a special place in my heart. Whenever I visit any community, it is the children who attract me first. Their innocence and cuteness enchants me each time.

Though the language barrier is making it difficult for me to communicate but with this I have acquired the language of smiles and gestures to communicate.

Sharing a picture of Santali little boy on Children's day.

A traditional 'chulha' or cooking stove. Most of the villages where we work are immensely dependent on wood and dung based fuel. You can find their huts covered with black soot and their eyes stinging with smoke when they cook.

The women invest most of their time & labour in collecting fuel instead of relaxing or taking care of their children.
As the cooking happens everyday there are higher degree of damage on health of rural women and children.

Most of us start our day with coffee/tea or sweating in a gym or sleeping till the time we want to wake up.

When I visited a village early in the morning their day started with feeding their cattles, working on fields, brooming their huts, making dung cakes and collecting firewoods for cooking. The scene was totally different. .

I thought this to share with you all. As I keep visiting the communities to meet people everyday. The place which made me stand and stare in awe earlier has again dumbstrucked me when i saw the painting got completed.
And here is the piece, the painter finally completed it.

Every artist takes inspiration from something or someone. Similarly, the weavers of Barabanki are encouraged to take inspiration from their surroundings for designs mainly because they have a history rich in arts and culture. We call this practice 'Digital Design Archiving'.

Here's our influential cluster manager Utkarsh with our Digital Design Trainer Ibraheem, mobilising the community by providing a dozen analogies to the people. And there's no doubt in saying that analogies do wonders in community engagement.This woman in yellow dupatta named Kesar Jahan has agreed to send her daughter-in-law and grandchildren to our training centre everyday for their growth and development.

'coz why should boys have all the fun? You'll hear the voice of Noori, our very own Digital Literacy trainer, giving the commentary here. Also, Gulapsh, the shortest girl in green dress, kicks the hardest. Everyone is scared of her already.

MAJHIHARAM- the village headman is chosen by the villagers to settle disputes and transgressions of social norms. The decisions for the village and villagers are taken collectively in Santal community.
Here, they are discussing when to set dates for their coming major festival SOHRAI.

(2) #LostInVillages
Each household had cattle. My colleagues used to discuss how they bought a Buffalo or sold a Goat 🐮
.
They would boast of their negotiation skills that got them the best deal. They would also look at me expecting a similar story or at least a nod of acknowledgement while I'd be thinking how in my last job, the closest topic I'd have discussed with my colleagues was probably Beef ban 🙊
.
I'd repeatedly tell them we don't have a Cow at home and they would look at me in amazement, wondering hundreds of things about me before asking some, one of which was, "Oh, then you've to go to someone else's place to get milk?"
.
I'm sharing some of the pictures from the time I spent working in the villages of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh last year. Please see last post for more detail 👈

SOHRAI- The harvesting festival of Santals. A unique and wonderful festival where the whole village dance and sing together. A festival of integration, joy and entertainment. A festival of keeping their traditional art form intact.
Seeing the coordination, colourful attires and hearing the powerful beat of instruments was truly a breathtaking moment.

(1) I spent some time in the villages of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh last year and I'm not the same person anymore 🙎
.
While this setting may look colorful, how many of us would be comfortable with owning just what's visible here. Plus, a cycle, and a non-smart phone, between 2 adults and 3 kids. I'm definitely not up for it.
.
No, please don't feel pity. That's the worst thing you can do. The information you have is too less to form any opinion about the family or their life. My idea is not to tell you any more, or to make you feel anything for them. It is to show a major side of our country that we often don't see because we don't need to. The fact that we can do well without knowing how more than half of our population lives, is unsettling 😲
.
Starting a new series from today and calling it #LostInVillages because I couldn't think of a better name. Let me know if you have a suggestion.
Will be posting pictures of rural areas where I've worked because they will always remain important for my personal growth 📈

There are 7.5 billion people in the world; only 3.6 billion are online. Wondering how wide is the gender gap? Well, over 1.7 billion females don’t own mobile phones in low and middle income countries. And internet penetration rates are lower for women than men in all regions of the world. Females also account for only 25% of Facebook users in India. For more photos and stories, visit www.vimages.net.

In Bihar, most houses in the villages have this one wall where two or three bricks are missing. I was curious to know why. One woman said that they use the space to keep miscellaneous items like soap, comb, medicines or in some cases to pass things to their neighbors.
Isn't it a good way of utilizing little nooks and corners of the house? I used it to keep my chai cup while talking to the family.

Most champions of equality are beneficiaries of inequality. Here's one that beats the stereotype #barefootonthegrass. #instagrameen

Exactly three years ago, @facebook Founder and CEO Mark @zuck was in India. During his trip to India, he planned a visit with DEF to Chandauli village in Rajasthan to see how rural communities are connecting to the Internet. Here, DEF runs a digital literacy centre that has introduced hundreds of people — from school children to seniors — to computer and the internet to find information, access government services and connect with their friends and loved ones.

This International Day of the Girl Child, let's not let the patriarchy of the offline world continue to seep into the digital world. Let's not let gender gap widen when it comes to accessing the information highway. Every girl has the right to a safe, educated and healthy life. In a gender inclusive digital world, these girls have the potential to change their lives and of those around them. For more photos and stories, visit www.vimages.net.
