Life in a Village……….

Image result for images of a village life

Village life has a charm of its own

Infusing an ambience of quietness

At the break of dawn all rise and shine

Farmers tending to their smallΒ farms

Shepherds with flock of goats, cows and sheep

Busily grazing away on the green grass

Petite bells resounding in the air

A pleasure to watch young lassies

Tiny tots in one hand, balancing clay pots

Spilling over with water on their heads

A sweet rhythm in their steps

Bullock-carts an only means of travel

Humble straw houses, artistic diyas, a cool touch

Tempting to the taste buds, bhakris and chutneys

Eaten with gusto, a delightful treat

Chit-chatting on charpoys under the starry nights

Feeling of harmony, a sense of togetherness

A touch of joy, time stands still

Far cry from the humdrum city life……………………

I stay in Mumbai and born in this humdrum city life but sometime I go and visit Ahmednagar which is two hours from Pune and there life is simply like a village life so thought of penning this poetry. So happy for you Josh. I have heard a lot of Kerala and it must be a beautiful place.

  1. Village Life is so peaceful. You see, the Industrialists destroyed Villages to build Cities.
    Now people are tired and exhausted of fast city life.
    Tomorrow, Business men, will destroy Cities to build back the Villages.

    Nowadays the Builders advertise like this “Don’t let your son, miss seeing his first Turtle………..bla bla bla…………Book Your Home in Lodha Paradise”.
    Another – Girl waking up saying “I wake up to the sounds of birds singing”………You want the same, book your haven in “Heritate Gates”.

    1. Yes for sure Cattie, this is what has happened to all our beautiful world and all these people have destroyed our environment and now they again want to go back to the village and that to create artificial meaningless lives. Thank you so much for your absolutely true feedback and we so miss this life. I had just been to a place where there was simple village life so thought of penning this poem. Have a nice day.

  3. Kamal you have described a typical Maharashtrian village so beautifully and originality is vivid in this poem. I love the original and natural environment of a village.
    I have spend most of my childhood vacations in my native place and know every nook and corner of it.
    But today when I go back, I go for a very short duration and early morning when I am awake I feel like I am leaving life with a pause and lot of full stops in it.
    The pace and worry of a city life is lost and you have huge amount of time to do whatever you want, there is no hurry at all.
    Everyone around you is cool and calm, no one is yelling and cursing. Patience, silence and bliss dwells in that air.
    Wow thanks once again for taking me there.
    Nice post.

    1. Hey Vishal, I am feeling so happy by your beautiful words and you have described life in a village more beautifully than me too. Yes I visited Ahmednagar which is in Maharashtra and life over there is so wonderful and the tranquility and people so calm and relaxed, no shouting and no humdrum like the city life at all. Feeling so happy, Vishal. Have a nice day.

  4. I loved reading it! It just freshened up my mind reminding me of the village atmosphere jab m apni amma ke yaahan jaata hu. It feels beautiful!
    You described everything so beautifully that I could imagine the whole scene in front of my eyes..
    coming to my critic,
    Read about rhyming scheme, I don’t know if it’s me only but I really like to read poems that rhyme even if just little. Your description was beautiful but if your main purpose it to write a poem, add rhyming words sticking to the rhyming scheme and trust me, it will enchance this piece to a great extent!
    Did i say more? Sorry if I offended you…

      1. Yes but little further than Shirdi, it is more closer to Pune, I would go there as a child and have travelled in bullock carts what an amazing feel, and eaten bhakris and chutneys made on coal stoves and not on gas. Amazing life. Where do you stay, Meenakshi.

      2. I’m born and brought up in Delhi but ever year during summer holidays when my classmates used to tell me they are going to their home town I used to feel so bad that I don’t have any home town other than Delhi…
        I can imagine the fun of travelling in bullock carts and eating food cooked on coal stove or Angethi. I just crave for that tasty food!
        Where are you from?

  6. feeling of harmony, sense of togetherness.. that’s the beauty of village life …people know each other.. it’s not like interfering in others family… but they find themselves under a single family.. your words paid full justice to such a village life..wondering what inspired you to write it..

    1. Thanks first of all for your words that so touched me and I found it so encouraging and yes i used to visit a village in Ahmednagar which is two hour drive from Pune and this feeling of being in a space which is so beautiful from this humdrum life came to me and thought of writing this poem. Thanks once again.
