their day to day activities. Watch women around a community well
fetching water buckets, washing clothes and carrying water in
beautiful matkas (clay pot) on their heads. Feel free
to join the group of people
sitting under some shady trees or in open courtyards discussing
everything from the world of
politics to the local domestic issues. An assemblage of
children in an open air school is also an admirable site. Visit these
open air schools and spend some time with children. We will also have
a round to village market where we will see various small shops of
sweets, grocery, vegetables, fruits and other utility items. In the
evening back to our accomodation in the village. Rest of the day at leisure.

for the treatment. Return to resort and enjoy special Rajasthani meal.

and attending Morning Prayer. After spending some time at temple and
we will return to resort and have some leisure hours. In the afternoon
meet to the Village Sarpanch (head of the village) and have lunch with
him. After lunch we will watch proceeding of village Panchayat - a
unique feature of village life. Panchayat represents a regulating body
that discusses and resolves the problems of villagers. It is headed by
(The head of the body) and four other members known as Panchas.
Villagers usually choose the senior members of village as Sarpanch and
panchas. These panchayats play a prominent role in the life of
villagers as their decisions are followed very rigidly. A special
evening at resort today where some unique entertainments will be
arranged such as walk on rope, puppet dance, fortune teller parrot,
Today again a visit to the farms.
Besides watching farmers doing their work we can also try our hands at
fieldwork. Plough the fields with farmer, try to use simple farming
equipments, water the fields and also watch water management
techniques used by farmers. As there is a problem of water scarcity in
Rajasthan the farmers use special methods to ensure maximum use of
available water resources. The skillful techniques used by these
farmers will be surprising. You can also take a tour in the green
field and watch women milking the cattle and the elderly and young
moving cattle for grazing. In the evening return to resort and rest.
After breakfast we will spend time in kitchen today not for
cooking meals but to observe the very eco friendly method of cooking
followed by villagers. Still in most of the village house traditional
methods are used for cooking and there is no use of
electricity or otherwise used cooking gas LPG. The kitchens
are usually open and food is cooked on Chuhlas (a small stove made
with bricks and mud). Usually dried woods or cow dung is used as a
fuel. A small hollow stick is used to speed up the heat or fire in
Chuhlas. Some special Rajasthani dishes are also prepared on heated
pieces of cow dung only such as batis (a round ball shaped
preparation). Enjoy special Rajasthani food dal-bati-choorma cooked in
kachi-rasoi (rugged kitchen) in lunch. Rest of the day at leisure.
After breakfast day will be spent with village artisans. Watch
different artisans like potters, cobblers, textile workers, carpenter,
jewelers, etc. on their work. They will demonstrate their specific
artwork to you. Enjoy watching a potter working on wheel or a cobbler
making shoes and traditional juttis (a pointed shoe). The traditional
textile work of Rajasthan is mainly done in villages by small artisans
who use very old techniques of dying and printing. Natural colors are
used for dying clothes and all the work is done by hands. Colorful
clothes spread in open air for drying provide a wonderful sight. You
can interact with these artists and also purchase the beautiful hand
made items. In the evening dress yourself in Rajasthani attire s and
enjoy a colorful folk night graced with dance and music performances
