Village Tourism In India

Village Tourism In IndiaDespite all the development taking place in all spheres of India, village tourism in India still remains a strong trend for any tourist visiting India. Many culture and heritage lovers still prefer visiting villages instead of multi faced cities of India. And that too village tourism in India is not new. For years the growth seen in the number of tourist visits to Indian villages has been immense.

Viewed from a distance, an Indian village may appear deceptively simple. A cluster of mud-plastered walls shaded by a few trees, set among a stretch of green or dun-colored fields, with a few people slowly coming or going, oxcarts creaking, cattle lowing, and birds singing--all present an image of harmonious simplicity.

Village Tourism In IndiaIndian city dwellers often refer nostalgically to "simple village life." City artists portray colorfully garbed village women gracefully carrying water pots on their heads, and writers describe isolated rural settlements unsullied by the complexities of modern urban civilization. Social scientists of the past wrote of Indian villages as virtually self-sufficient communities with few ties to the outside world.

In actuality, Indian village life is far from simple. Each village is connected through a variety of crucial horizontal linkages with other villages and with urban areas both near and far. Most villages are characterized by a multiplicity of economic, caste, kinship, occupational, and even religious groups linked vertically within each settlement. Factionalism is a typical feature of village politics. In one of the first of the modern anthropological studies of Indian village life, anthropologist Oscar Lewis called this complexity "rural cosmopolitanism."

Once you have made up your mind to be a part of village tourism in India then please make note of some useful suggestions. Villages in India are rich on culture and traditions and the locals take immense pride in being part of it. It is advisable that you hire tour guides having exclusive knowledge about tourism in India villages. This not only makes you aware about the customs of the visited village but also helps you interact with the local people. It is hoped that you develop interest as you tour Indian villages as per a tourists interest and makes it a memorable experience. And always remember : India lives in its villages.
