Some destinations just lend themselves to understand the rural landscape of India. This is especially true for Deogarh and Chettinadu, where we organise village walks for guests. Here, you can enjoy the sight of villagers performing their day-to-day activities; women getting water from the community well, washing clothes and carrying water back to their homes in beautiful matkas (clay pot) on their heads. The men folk are busy in agricultural farms or at their potter’s wheels, tending the cattle and other work. The sense of calm and peace in a village is a pleasant contrast to city life. In Chettinad, you get to see weaving sheds, buzzing with activities like spinning, dyeing and weaving textiles, especially saris.
