Village Life

The village is the natural centre of any rural community. Gandhi believed that villages were the key to happiness and prosperity, and pleaded for the decentralisation of economic and political power through the organisation of vil­lage panchayats. The panchayat is a committee of five elders who govern local life. The village was therefore the primary unit of social organisation.

Today, despite continuing urbanisation, many Indians still live in villages. Though modern technology is apparent everywhere, it appears incongruous, and life largely depends on the land as it has for thousands of years.
The bull, traditionally used for ploughing and transport, is gradually being superseded by the tractor
The soul of India lives in its villages, 60 percent of the population still lives in villages of India. Indian villages have a very beautiful and attractive lifestyle. The Villages are free from the hustle and bustle of a city life, villages are peaceful, calm, quite and full of greenery where one can breathe fresh air. The beauties of villages are described by the way villagers happily live in the small huts or a home, made by clay or mud. A big open area with trees at the front and a vegetable garden at the backyard, surrounded by the bamboos. The villagers are socially knit together, every evening they assemble in the village “Chopal” with their ‘hukkas’ and chatting and talking goes on till late the night.
Disposable cups and plates are nothing new. These sun-baked clay pots and banana leaf plates are easily and effectively recycled. Village life, based on dharrna (adherence to God's laws) helps to preserve the environment.
Indian village house are Eco- friendly in nature, made by bamboos and mud’s. The houses in Indian villages are mostly built of bamboo with thatched roofs. Wall and floor of the village houses are by painted by a mixture of dirt, grass, and cow shit. Before and after rain, these house need a maintenance every time. Most of the people who live in villages are farmers, other works as potters, carpenters, blacksmith. Bull’s are use for farming and other activity in field. Women work planting the rice paddy, while the men work pulling bullock carts, tilling new soil etc.
