A sundry and united mixture of dynasties, traditions, languages, trends and voice — this is what India comprises of. Every state, every city, every village, entry street is different, yet fit in together like a jigsaw puzzle!
With such diversity, the Indian nomenclature has set a benchmark that can only be decoded with the help of a special Indian version dictionary.
Here are a few villages whose names and intellectuality are brainstorming!
Situated in Punjab’s Jalandhar, this village is famous for water tanks over its houses. They defy the conventional black, cylindrical costume. Instead, every home has a ship, an airplane, a car and even a horse-shaped water tank that one can view from afar. Water tanks are so cool, they have their own Halloween party everyday!
Ancient village in Himachal, isolated from the world, covered by peaks, residents believe they’re predecessors of Alexander — this sounds like a place where you can escape to meditate. Touching walls or natives’ belongings can impose fine, and Akbar is their God. This village is preserving history, civics and geography since forever !
Located in Kutch, Gujarat, this village is famous for its white revolution. This is such a raw, crude place that no one sells dairy products, rather give them for free to those who don’t rear cattle. And this is how native purity win hearts!
A very special village which is known for its exceptional number of twins. Out of every 1,000 mothers, 45 give birth to twins which rates this village out-of-the-way by 700% higher from the rest of the globe !
Once a cementery for farmers who committed suicides due to droughts, this village in Ahmednagar district, Maharashtra is an abode to 60 millionaires and barely and poor farmer. People are now ready to face any challenge, making Hiware Bazar the richest village in India. Hard work will always yield success, need more proof?
Model houses with toilets, primate health center, two primary schools, solar-powered lighting, independent bus system, clean drinking water at ₹4 per 20 liters water-can, well maintained drainage system — these basics doesn’t even begin to define this Gujarati village.
With Wi-Fi all over the village, CCTV at strategic points, public address system with about 140 loudspeakers, Punsari is topping the charts of development over many Metropolitans. Villagers has insurance and medi-claim as well.
Actually, it’s all about harnessing Government schemes optimally.
Located in Solapur district of Maharastra, each house in Shetphal has an abode for guests — guests that make this village offbeat. These are the most poisonous and dangerous Cobra snakes.
Due to such hospitality of snakes, not a single case of snakebite has been reported from the village over
years. Atleast some places in the world are animal-friendly !
Another epitome from Ahmednagar, Maharashtra, this village has its own stupefying customs. Resident houses, police station, resorts, guest houses — all WITHOUT doors and windows ++ yet no cases of theft or murder or rape. It’s time for everyone to shift to such villages.
Comprising of best female athletes, yet dishonorable scale of female feticide — irony never fails to surprise us. Chappar is a very remote village in Haryana where every female birth us celebrated throughout the village, and women no longer don veils.
Because using scarecrows in farms in too mainstream !
Farmers in this village have built special areas to feed birds. The village is an abode to rare bird species, with special health care places for wounded birds. Another bird sanctuary perhaps ?
“Simple and natural things are free from obscenity and vulgarity.”
Such primitive and ordinary living, yet such treasure of knowledge and love — if there is paradise on Earth, it is here, it is here.
