Wanderlust Tales : Village Scene #atozchallenge

Last Christmas I stayed in Nagpur for a week before flying to Hong Kong.  My tryst with Nagpur began a few years ago. The summer can be pretty brutal here and I was almost sure that even my bones had started melting 😛 . The outside temperature fluctuated between 40 to 45 degree Celsius. Air Conditioners have no impact whatsoever, each house has a Cooler installed. I used to live in a Chennai back then, which is a metro city in India known for its super hot climate. But compared to Nagpur, Chennai felt like a hill station. All my misconception about summers came crashing down, well you get learn something new every time you travel.

This time around the weather was cool, even though winter was at it’s peak, I could manage with just a shawl wrapped around my shoulders. It was lovely 😀 The mornings were warm while the temperature dropped considerably at night. Along with the delicious Marathi cuisine, I also got a glimpse of villages nearby Nagpur. The realm of one of the villages began just a km away from where I was  staying. 

Every morning we would go for a walk along the dusty path running between wide vast fields. What I found fascinating was the use thorny branches of Babul tree  (Acacia) as natural fence to ward off meandering cows and goats from chewing away the crops. 

Along with ClaireParul and Shaliniwe have formed an Unconventional Alliance with A to Z co-host Pam Margolis as the ring leader … all set to rock the party

  1. So very beautiful Raj 🙂 I love the rural India. Btw Nagpur is my birthplace but I havent been back there after my year 10. I should visit soon, in winter though 😉

  2. Lovely photos of a type of countryside I've experienced. As for heat, I've lived in northern Texas, in the United States, where temperatures commonly go over 38-40 degrees Celsius. But my apartment was air conditioned. So, based on that…I just can't imagine. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

  4. Never been to Nagpur. But yes, I have seen many beautiful villages in Kerala! Thanks for sharing the lovely pics 🙂
