I am currently working on a new 'Road not taken' theory. Gone are the days when being a #writer instead of an #engineer used to be called doing something #unconventional.
Stick around, you'll know soon!

Quarter moon.

Couldn’t resist myself posting this pic 😍😍

Every time I visit a rural region in the country, I usually get more respect than I deserve. I get called “madam” everywhere, even though the people I meet are usually double my age, or more. I think this happens purely because the farmers and people I meet in the villages think I am somehow better and superior than them and that they must respect me.
.
What have city-dwellers done to actually earn this respect? Have you ever heard of people from rural India coming to the cities and getting this first class treatment and hospitality? It has probably never happened, because there is a clear stereotypical lens with which each of these groups look at each other. We work, just like they work. We live more consumerist and wasteful lives than they ever could and we don’t know what living in peace looks like.
.
Every single time, there are people in villages insisting I go visit their houses, eat their home cooked meals, visit their farms and get to know their cattle. What do we in the cities have to offer? What makes us think speaking English and knowing how to use the Internet and gadgets makes us better than them? We don’t know anything, Jon Snows. Nothing at all.

One of India's last remaining narrow gauge trains trundles past a pond full of relaxing buffaloes. The line once belonged to the Maharaja of Dhoulpur, who laid out to transport stone from their quarries. Today, it's one of chief modes of transport for people living in this impoverished part of India.

Isn't it Beautiful , not just the school and landscape behind. But something around this was more beautiful.
Kept looking at it for a long time. And something was running in my mind , multiple thoughts juggled within .
And the itchy fingers provoke to pen it down, the feel i was getting that very moment.... " Down the footsteps of Gigantic Monolithic Hill Savanadurga comes this little Kannada School barely 30-40 students in two class rooms , those wonderful selfless smiles of children seated on the bare floor , repeating a kannada poen after their master , humbleness and warmth of villagers walking around , the stare of rural youth as if i was from a far distance and high qualified society , the old ones waving and laughing widely as i passed around." Thoughts juggle around as i grasp another one . " A Farmer on his old bicycle , paddling tiredly and bringing home bundle of grass to his pair of Ox , A mother returning home from miles away tough walk to bring home a mud-pot filled of drinking water.
And there comes the school bell , little girl rush outside the small veranda for evening prayers then return back home , her father has come home after a tired work in field fighting a burning sun over him . Mother with all her heart hugs the little girl running towards her from the school , then comes the cheer from all three a mother , father and a little one meeting back at home.
While the girl dramatically orated what happened in school , laughing to which a mother serves whatever she could cook the best. They pray to their deity who gave them this beautiful day , the little one finds her father's open arm to sleep. For her parents between their struggle of the day the only beautiful thing is that daughter's sleep in peace and happiness . Beautiful indeed.
Truly , wasn't that the truth - " The Rural India , The Real India " . Why cant the urban society accept this ?? . They all have their roots originated to Rural India.
Thoughts kept juggling n juggling .... " The beauty of Rural India should better be experienced not told in random lines"

गावाकडील जत्रा म्हणली की “मौत का कुवा” हा खेळ हमख़ास सापडतो.
.

अत्यंत चित्तथरारक आणि रोमांचकारी असा हा खेळ.
कानठळ्या बसविणारा तो ‘फटफट फटाट’ असा प्रचंड आवाज करुन अत्यंत वेगाने मोटर साइकल चालवित मृत्युच्या गोलातून वरुन खाली आनी खालून वर असा लिलाया प्रवास कारणारा मोटर साइकलस्वार बघुन जिवाचा थरकाप झाल्याशिवाय राहत नाही. .
.
हे असे स्टंट करण्यासाठी खरं जिगर असावं लागतं. .

Talks of the evening.
At the end of the day, women stop in the fields and start chattering about their usual household work.
I got this stunning visual when they were talking became candid because of the tricolour in the background.
How often do you see such a stunning view now a days?
That too a candid, landscape within the tricolour!
Incredible India!

- wet grass converted to fodder for cow because of the sunlight... What if humans also used sunlight and implemented solar projects on much larger scales regularly... #grassroutes #sustainableholidays #sustainability #nonconventional #earthday #iger #vsco #natgeo #natgeoindia #travel #ruralindia #ecotourism #communities #preservation
