The soul of India lives in its villages, 60 percent of the population still lives in the villages of India. Indian villages have a very beautiful and attractive lifestyle. The Villages are free from the hustle and bustle of a city life, villages are peaceful, calm, quiet and full of greenery where one can breathe fresh air. The beauties of villages are described by the way villagers happily live in the small huts or a home, made by clay or mud. A big open area with trees at the front and a vegetable garden at the backyard, surrounded by the bamboos.
Living in big cities and tall buildings, we are far away from living in the natural air and surroundings. This holiday, we visited our relatives in the village that helped us to look at life differently. They are very rich in terms of many things that can make anyone envious of them. There are many lessons that you can teach your kids from village life.
Friends forever: Living in cities, we are so busy in our life, we don’t have time to make friends and spend time with them. Though we have a great social network online, they have a great social life in real. Learn from those kids the importance of being friends forever and spending time together other than in parties.
Being Original: Village kids are so original in nature and their clothing that they don’t need any approval from anyone whether they are looking good or not, they are playing it right or wrong. They have their own games and activities to spend quality time including a lot of physical activities.
Enjoy nature: They spend an awesome time with nature. In summers, they take dips in village small lakes anytime, they enjoy rains, get wet and dirty in rainy days and enjoy the sun in winters, unlike us who prefer spending winter days inside our homes under the blanket. Their immunity system is much better than ours towards the changing climate.
Value Education: Village kids value education the most. Having less resources and limited teachers, children value Education much more than us being in cities with good schools and infinite tuition options.
Help parents: Village children help their parents a lot. We make our kids very fragile asking them to stay away from kitchen work, heavy load works and others, however kids in rural areas can work a lot more than ours. We saw a 10 year old girl making perfect rotis for her parents.
Respect Food: Children in the village see from a very basic step of growing crops. They see their parents working very hard to grow vegetables and other crops. Hence, they respect food a lot. They don’t waste their food at all. With less in number and rich in quality, they value it to the core.
Outdoor fun & enjoy simple things: Without having any smartphones or Desktops at home, kids enjoy their outdoor games. They find their games in small things. They have a lot of games to play using their hands, their legs, chalk and duster, small places and large grounds. They don’t need any board games to play, they enjoy their Bachpan very differently from the children living in cities.
