The Indian Countryside – slide show
On New Year’s Eve we drove out into the countryside and the experience was a refreshing one. It was wonderful to see so much natural beauty and breathe in pure air. It just happened that the area we were in was a prosperous one, and the prosperity left us a little agape. From the signs on some of the village walls, I got the impression that some of these villages had been developed with the help of the government, but I did not get any information on the net. The villages were neat and tidy, and well laid out. The area was clean and the people looked happy and prosperous. The countryside was quite breathtaking despite the dry weather.
The map below (from Google Maps) marks out the area which we visited, and is marked by the red arrow. The inset at the bottom right hand corner is the India map.
There were quite a few good photographs and therefore I thought it best to present them in a slideshow. This slideshow is just of the countryside, and I will be posting a separate one on the people and another one on their dances, which I managed to capture on video. Hope you enjoy the scenery just as I did!
