When was the last time you got an opportunity to visit a village or your village? Did you notice any difference in the lifestyle of the people? What was going on in your mind?
Whenever we hear the word village, the first thing that rings in our mind is slow and peaceful life. Correct? The village days were simple, refreshing, loved by all, charming and last but not the least, the quality of food and air. So, today what we observe is that shadow of rapid urbanisation making its way to the village dwellers, gradually changing the actual meaning of village life.
Village life then
Those who were born between the 60's - 90’s would be able to feel it well. Villages lacked technology, education was close to nil, activities restricted to agriculture and people were conservative (even to this day some villages and families elsewhere still are). People knew each other well and were linked even without LinkedIn back then. Once in a while a cinema was projected on a white screen (wall or a white clean cloth) , local fairs (just like the Nampally exhibition) used to take place that attracted multiple villages, for a 2-3 day event. Means of communication was just a post office, with a landline telephone.
Village life now
Today villages do exist, but internally it is more of a modern day village. Post offices are also the banks and internet centres. Residents know the language of money. Bullock carts have been replaced by tractors. Villages are now well connected to cities by roads and public transport. Those with income have constructed two-storied houses in the place of the old hut.
Government schools and education programs flourish more than ever thus enabling parents to send their children to study, where mid-day meals too are being served. Farmers have benefited/are benefiting under various revival programs at state levels. It’s still the same village, just that development has taken over. Life too has transformed. People who earlier practised agriculture now have set up mid size grocery stores that have made their life comfortable. Their children now work abroad or in cities, yet they have chosen to stay in the very same place.
You too can set an example
A home never changes, what changes is the perception of the people in and around. The land that was chosen years ago has now become your permanent address. You are identified as Mr.--- / Ms–, now that you own a house. There is a saying in Telugu, which when translated into English, reads If you buy a house or a piece of land, then three fortunes await for the future.
