Touch of a Village
Many years have been passed
Since I came from village to city
But I couldn't find anywhere
The touch of a village and its simplicity.
Affection is scattered in each particle of village
Loneliness is eating in the crowd of city
Childhood resides in the soil of village
But it's lost in the flare of city.
The sunlight of village is cool
But the shed of city is making us fool
The sweat of village smells nice
Whereas the fragrance of perfumes tell lies.
Sweet song of the birds
Whistle of the squirrels
Beauty of the rising sun
Gentle breeze and blossoming flowers.
Village life is full of divine beauty
There are no smoke and noise of city
No hustle bustle and no worry
Villages are happy and healthy.
Villagers share joy and sorrow of each other
Guest of one is considered as the guest of another
Inspite of some drawbacks
Than the city, life of a village is better.
I wish I could return back to the village
To feel that touch again
I wish I could sleep in the shed of banyan tree
To get that peace and happiness again.
By Monika Jain 'Panchi'
Village life is the most natural life for the human beings. It’s very plain and simple. Cattle lowing, birds singing, the greenery of the fields, the flowing of the rivers all adds charm to the village life. Villages bring a divine touch in the human mind. Villagers have few wants in their life. They are very hardworking. Villagers are very loving, helpful and honest. The entire village appears to be a single well knit unit one family. I love the village life.
