Way to farm (slushy)

Jugnoo Farms my otherwise rustic (hobby) farm came alive after some unusually good showers during Diwali. I took some pictures to capture the magical effect of rains.

The more things change, the more they stay the same, right?




I took a ‘nature walk’ around my little farm and witnessed the exotic effect of rain good enough to excite a painter:

On way back its fun to wade through this lovely stream (An ‘Oda’ in Marathi) where you can see the simple but industrious village folk merrily washing the first lot of produce for the market.

A simple village routine

A trip to this simple unsofisticated location never fails to charge me up especially during the rainy days 🙂

    Dear Sir,
    Thanks for the Diwali pics. Reminds me very much of Africa and home, where we are encountering nature everyday. Just wish life is so much full of this as opposed to the pollution we are facing every second of the day.

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for sharing these lovely pictures with us. They give us a sense of the tranquil aura in your farm.

    The first pic actually reminds me (with due apologies to Robert Frost) of “Stopping by Woods on a Rainy Evening.” And yes, there are times when simple, unsophisticated rustic pleasures can leave an indelible mark!

    Thanks and regards,
