Glimpse Of Village Life: An Ode To Serenity And Simplicity (Photo Feature Part One)

Rural landscape despite being marred by new sociological aberrations allow one to be in company of serenity and simplicity.  That’s one of the reasons which make me  embrace rural world in all its totality. Have a look at these beautiful images which bear testimony to the fact that nature’s beauty alone has the capacity to provide you real bliss.  This photo feature is in two parts. The first one deals with summer life whereas the part two unfolds life during winters.  Interestingly, the winter scenes belong to my previous trip to my village few months back.
