Purushwadi, Maharashtra

2 Nights / 3 Days

  • In a sleepy little village called Purushwadi the cackle of kids, mooing of the cows and a pulley rolling from the nearby well makes a ripple across the village. In greater cities, we know so little of the world and we feel so little. In small towns and villages you are no minority. Every hour poses a challenge and every waking minute there is a new calling. You leave your whimsys of yourself behind when you step on to the earthen caked mud with your barefeet. As the day wanes, a million fireflies dance to the tunes of nature. Feast your eyes on an event that is beyond words. As the pastures light up, you cannot help but wonder if stars are holes in the sky through which the heaven shines its light down on Come experience a typical Indian village, interact with the local villagers and be astonished by their contentment in life and linger around for a soul rejuvanting journey.
