Due to my job I live in big urban cities like #delhi .However I love rural and village life because so much culture and traditions are alive there..People are deeply connected and they enjoy festivals more than urban people .Life become double the fun when festivals are celebrated at community level.Village fairs are my favourite.Yesterday however I felt to happy when I visited this historic Mela(fair) of Delhi.
Set in urban landscape,Delhi’s famous #LavKushRamleela has started.People are enjoying Ramleela,ten day long storytelling of victory of Lord Rama over tyrannical demon king Ravana.The mood of this urban fair was superb.Visitors of this cultural fair were seen enjoying the storytelling and all other associated fun activities.There are many yummy food stalls too.From Balloon sellers to toy sellers everyone is adding to the joy. Sweetsellers like Gulab Jamun seller is doing some brisk business.Jadogar,the Magician’s stalls were also full.Kids are enjoying all kinds of daredevil swings.Young and old all were enjoying fun in every possible form. It was as if happiness was flowing from every nook and cranny of this fair .Urban life seems so much full of life and joy here.This ten day fair is our chance to be back to childhood and enjoy life free of worry and hustle and bustle of a mega city .

Ringed by an arc of green mountains, Srinagar's greatest drawcard is the mesmerizingly placid Dal Lake, on which a bright array of stationary houseboats provide a colorful visual treat. From famous Mughal gardens to historic wooden mosques, this city is a real haven for tourists | Photograph by @the_medographer | Follow @offroadsindia for more.

People who are meagre of means are the most generous with love.
The man in the photo was the cook amongst them, in addition to being a skilled sculptor. He was responsible for the tea breaks and the meals. I had lunch at a nearby restaurant the first few days. But on the third day or so, he asked me to join them for lunch. I was delighted and accepted graciously. And although it was a plain meal of rice, dal and mashed potatoes, it was sumptuous to say the least. The conversation during meals was enlightening. They talked about everything from politics to Bollywood to the materials to be bought for the next day's work. Over the next few days, I began to look forward to the lunch as much as to my work.
And on the last day, they even ordered chicken curry and fried rice, as a farewell meal.
They were good people.
