A Typical Village house in Rural Maharashtra


This is typical rural Maharashtra of our India. We had gone for a trekking trip near Igatpuri and on our way up had to cross this small village named ‘Baaichi-wadi’ meaning ‘Woman’s house’.
The mud houses were vibrantly coloured and beautifully decorated. The walls, the border on the door frame and the doors… everything was beautifully hand painted. Mostly they use vegetable colours but these days normal wall paints are used.


I immediately clicked some shots. Seeing me clicking them, everybody felt extremely shy.. .. the house lady, the kids, even this girl including cows and goats !!
The small girl was very shy, I requested her to stay there but she couldn’t face the camera. Her mother was the first one to run into the room and initiate the ’shy’ run. LOL..




In a fraction of a moment they all ran in. You can see the left over green leaves which the animals were enjoying till then.
There are so many and so different from each other all over India. Will definitely go there once again. I fell in love with this village.
Let me know if anyone of you is also interested.
I am planning to take a solo trip to other places as well.
