The rustic nature of the village atmosphere has always enchanted me. Still not invaded by the mechanical and somewhat unemotinal life of the cities, these villages retain their charm. They continue living by the methods and practices handed down through the generations though a couple of influences of modernisation keep showing up. The innocence of the villagers, the greenery and the friendly atmosphere left me spell bound at a friend’s marriage which was held in a small village in Andhra Pradesh India. I even borrowed one of their recipes which they normally have for break fast called Oggani Bajji which is featured in this blog.
I hope you would enjoy seeing the pics as much as I enjoyed staying there.
