Life in a Village
Life in a village is a real blessing. Villages preserve our national customs and traditions. In the early stages of human civilization, there were no towns per se. In those times people lived in villages: in the proximity of Nature. This means that they had not raised any differentiating wall between their way of living and the way Nature influences their lives. They were simply the children of Nature. The beautiful sights and the sweet sounds of nature are still there to feed the eyes and cars of the people living in villages.
On the contrary, they mainly directly make friendship with Nature. Most of the people who live in villages are farmers. They live by cultivating lands, fishing and raising cattle. Most of the time they make their homes with mud, bamboos, and planks and leaves of various trees. They live amongst trees. They get up early in the morning at the call of birds. The village people are very hard-working. The village people usually hold various festivals and fairs where they represent the wealth of our culture. They feel warm when they listen to fairy tales and legendary stories. Ancient myths and folk-tales govern most of their beliefs. They live a simple life. They tend to retain and cherish the tradition that their forefathers have handed down to them. Deceit, fraud, and treachery have much less scope in the village.
Happiness lies in simplicity. You can easily find a certain spiritual serenity and enjoy the pleasures of meaningful time among the magnificent rural landscapes. As far as the village people are concerned, this saying has proved true. The manner of living of the village people is simple. They are also very simple in social relationships and thoughts. The majority of villagers are poor and lead a hard life. They simply love one another. In times of the danger of one family, other families rush in with a helping hand. They are simple, honest and are very happy as they have no worries and not many wants. In villages, unlike in towns, almost everyone is personally known to everyone. But that is not all. Normally, any villager has direct or indirect blood connections with many others living around him. Life in a village is contented and peaceful. This enhances the unity they generally have among them. As a result, life becomes easy and peaceful for them. The pleasure one derives from living in a village is very great.
