I am so happy and feel very satisfied…had a lovely break and start my work tomorrow. This Easter break, I had a spring cleaning done, arranged and did DIY decor of my living room with minimum resources I had(which includes my lovely Paithani saree), invited atleast 7 families for dinner/lunch, posted a few posts here, made every meal special for my family, painted a lot of paintings, read a bit and chatted at length with my lovely husband and baby(12 year old), attended to musical shows, ate out….gosh the list is endless!! The main attraction was my blog…love my blog and my virtual friends. This blog will be a year old in July. I thought I should start the celebration well in advance. Hence announcing an event “Village special” .
Villages in India form a major identity. People are deeply rooted to their villages that they do not wish to make a move to another. At least I do mention, even after a move to Kolkata to Kolhapur and then Pune and finally to England about “our village” now a town in India. It is a wonderful world where you can avail the rich source of milk,vegetables and fruit. Even I like buying my spices when I visit my place. Love the gavran vegetables especially the aubergines and green tomatoes. There so much of a bliss sitting in the cool angan(porch)with a glass of tea in winters and tak(buttermilk) in the summers!! I am sure you all must have some excerpts to share as well. Share your experiance and spread the word to other bloggers and non-bloggers as well.
