A walk through my village !!!!!!

Hey you
The one gazing at this screen with your puffy ,,tired eyes
Get up !!!!
I said just get up!!!
It’s the time to take a break from this dull,,boring & lifeless world of gizmos & get a bit closer to nature.

So how about a walk through my village???
Let me have the pleasure to be your guide during this small journey.
This point marks the starting point of our village.
Just providing you with the info regarding the places will make journey boring,,so let let me just give you a bit of crispy conversation throughout this walk.

Today after returning & then having a nap,,,I just thought about having a ride through my village. So I asked choti to take out her rampyari & then me & choti went on a ride.
I’m not good in geography ,,so don’t expect the geographical facts about this place from me. Hmmmmmm,,,,,,I could have asked for Di’s help ( she being master of geography) but I’m still on my movement so no question of taking her help.
But still, I can give a brief info. This place is called Barnai (old name Thathi),,,,this reminds me of another tag,,tittle or whatever,,,given by my friend harry,,,,”MISS BARNAI MORH”,,,& I feel so Ewwww about it. harry I just wanna say, “Aaj khush toh bahut hoge tum” finally I have disclosed this tittle here. Okay,,coming back,,my village is situated 5km away from jammu city,,,tehsil & district Jammu. This village extends over 1.75 km approx. along the bank of an irrigation canal.

I & my family are not native to this place. We came here about some 19 years back when we migrated from Kashmir.
The main occupation of the people of the place is agriculture & related activities.
Initially this place had so many green fields but now with the increasing population only few are left & rest of the land is converted into residential area.
This irrigation canal has ice-cold water even when the temperature is above 40 degree Celsius. This is one of the distributaries of Ranbir canal which itself is a tributary of river Chenab. My friends often tease me,,saying, “You are lucky,,you can spent your summer vacations by taking a basket of mangoes & dipping your feet in the canal”.( beautiful sunset na????)
This is choti’s rampyari,,have to put this pic here,,,otherwise she’s gonna beat me.
Hope you must have enjoyed this walk. Thanks for your visit.
Keep visiting.
