G - GOING NUTS | GLIMPSES OF GAONS


Today is G!! @a-z challenge.
Going Nuts actually, participating in this marathon is making me go nuts! But hey! I discovered that, with almost 2k bloggers going nuts together along with you, is way too much fun! So, Cheers to Going Nuts!
Now, that I'm done ranting, lets get back down to business :-))

Glimpses Of Indian Villages a.k.a Gaons in Pictures!
( not my clicks though )

Gaon in hindi means a village. It is a frequently used term hence, I preferred to use it as alphabet 'G' post along with 'G'limpes!
In India, there is a big divide between the rich and the poor. The Rich are very rich and Poor very poor ( barely having the basic necessities ). And here more than 75% of the population still lives in either gaons ( i.e villages ) or small towns. And often this lifestyle is in total contrast to the city lifestyle and hence is definitely worth a virtual look or a real visit even, if you want to view 'Simplicity' at its best.
Many times we, sitting at the comforts of our city homes, often forget these gaon-walas who does the hard work and grows all the vegetables, fruits, grains, pulses in their gaons with limited resources for our consumption, as well as dairy products and also many of the herbal medicines plants. We should salute these gaon people!
Note : Some of the pictures may give a culture-shock as well.
Here in 'gaons' the people are very innocent, poor, simple and hard working.






Famous 'GAON' Song :
Gori Tera Gaon Bada Pyara
Maein To Gaya Maara, Aake Yahan Re
Us Par Roop Tera Saada
Chandrama Jyon Aadha, Aadha Jawaan Re
Gori Tera Gaon...


Translate:
O'Village belle, your village is very pretty
Coming here, I'm totally conquered
On top of that, your beauty is so simple
Shining like Moonlight, and youthful
O'Village belle...

  6. Nandini! Wow, what a post :)

    I was born in Toronto to a white mom and an Indian father, but I know very little about India, aside from the fact that I'd love to go Bouldering in Hampi.

    To read all about and view photos of the Gaons is really an eye-opener.

    Like Tayla said above, definitely a different world.

    Thanks for sharing and keep up the great #AtoZchallenge !
