Today I would love to show you my father’s village. He grew up and studied in a village up to 10th grade and then moved to the city (Pune) to study his diploma in Engineering. Since then he’s made Pune his home. Occasionally we go to visit his village for a day since it’s very close to Pune and it’s always fun. It’s slow, relaxing and a great getaway, not to mention getting to meet the rest of the family members.
Last time we went it was the beginning of summer. Because of the open spaces and the vegetation you feel the summer heat more. you can see it in the dried up lake and the browning vegetation.
Whenever we visit, we take pictures with the cows and the hens and the tractor like tourists who have never seen a village before. We also look at plants laden with tomatoes and take pictures with it. We’re crazy like that.
We saw huge full grown onions. They were planted when the onion prices in India were over the roof, but now that the prices are down, don’t know how much profit it could fetch. We also saw chilli plants. There are some chillies grown in our village which are actually sweet. You can eat them raw without burning your tongue. We posed on tractors and ate sugarcane. As always my dad peeled and broke the sugarcane for us to eat since we are delicate city people.
