Village Life in India
Time, we know, is the dearest thing. Even a minute cannot be called back. No wealth can buy even a second. But time is the cheapest thing in an Indian village. In fact, time is the only cheap thing there.
Village life, it is said, is simple, but town life is not. The fact is that village life in India is not a simple life. It is a hard and poor life. The simplicity of villagers is a sign of their poverty. Our hungry villagers cannot say that they are observing fast. If they say so, they deceive themselves.
