Life in a city seems exciting. You get easy manpower, help, utilities, well equipped technology, easy commutation, malls at all the corners, security, electricity, roads, more career opportunities, easy online services, good and latest infrastructure etc etc etc… In short a convinient life. In city, you can get whatever you want and quickly.
But there may come a time when you just want to escape from everyday stresses and complexities of city life. It is the simplicity, serenity, natural beauty, tranquility that makes the rural life unique and special. There is something devine in village beauty. There is satisfaction in the slower pace of days. Days feel longer in villages… like literally long…. as if 48 hrs completes a day. Kakira is a small village in Chamba district of Himachal Pradesh. It is a small but pretty place. Life sometime gets harsh there with extreme weather conditions and occasional scarcity of water, but life has a different kind of peace there which I miss in this city life. People there, are in their own kind of cocoon, but content and happy with all they have, totally unaware and unaffected by the noise of city life. I wish I could stay there forever, but I live in a big city, believing that happiness is a state of mind and can be achieved anywhere irrespective of the place.😋
