A Glimpse into the Rural Indian Village Life- Kodiyala

I was fortunate enough to visit this place Kodiyala - 4 hours drive from Banglore- a small village with about 3400 people. Walking past the coconut trees and sugarcane fields one gets to see a real village rural life.

What I loved about these places is how most of the villages still maintain their past- one can see females making clothing for their kids by hands,or still practising the age-old crafts, and how the temple chantings are not mixed with the city noise- all these experiences makes one realize what they have lost while growing.

If one needs to understand the meaning of community, I think village is the best place to know- where everyone is concerned with each others life, there is a connection and ease in being a part of each other's life, unlike the city life where no one is concerned what's going in your neighbours life.


And of course the cleaner air, the simple life where just raising your family and earning your bread is enough.
the houses usually are made of clay, mud and bamboo and are environment-friendly with hens, cows and goats roaming around wich are a major source of milk and eggs.

The normal job here is farming- sugarcane and coconut, weaving silk fabrics, and making incense stick. though many have moved to cities in search of a better lifestyle and salary.

The cuisine of each state depends on the crops that are grown and since south has abundant growth in rice and coconut- so people here eat majorly rice and idli (made of rice and pulses) with coconut chutney.

I've seen incense sticks being made in Vietnam ... the technique is very similar.

Is it, what did they use for binding the material.. I was trying to ask the people here, but due to language barrier I culdnt fully understand.

Thank you for the interesting post!

Couldn't agree more with you @iteavelarts 😉 really nice captures and how people enjoy the life in the village is always interesting. The nature and natural response of the dwellers are something we should call as balance in life, right? Thanks for sharing ..

Oh, Swati ! I love these posts from you, they are absolutely gorgeous... Reminds us of simpler days, humbler days. The photos are very illustrative and I love how you talk about their crafts very much. These things are dying slowly as people are very into commercialization of things these days. We care less for how things are made, and more for how cheap we can get them at.

But posts like yours are like... a breath of fresh air, that reminds us to look and appreciate the simpler things in life might be the actual treasures indeed :)

❤️❤️ So very true.. I love that they are able to practice the crafts even though there isn't any market..
so rightly said- we care about how cheap they are instead of effort that goes into making.
Thank you for so much support, because of you guys I am able to share these with you and hopefully will continue doing so.
Love and hugs
