These pictures were clicked during a recent trip to my native place. Farming activities are at their best at this time of the year, thanks to good monsoon rains this year. I haven’t seen the agricultural fields with so much greenery in the past decade or so. Hope the rain gods bless our farmers with bumper yields every year like this. As mentioned before, another post is in the draft about Sri Krishna Janmashtami celebrations… Stay tuned for that!
Hello Sir, Nice to see ur village farming. Now a day seeing such timing farming I feel very much good. Now day what the rain do u all known, we people wait wait wait but there is no rain, when the farmer didn’t need that time the sever rain can destroied there whole hervest. It happen all time in our orissa. There no fault of God or nature because we people which way destroed the nature the nature so there anger that way. When we people can under stand this?
There is only one way… everyone should start thinking like you to efficiently use our natural resources.
Fabulous…nice photos..Nostalgic for me as I spent lots of time in farms when I was child. Pray to God for this kind of rain every year.

True… that is the best way to support them 🙂
Mohan! green,clean and serene-grant me God !such a landscape for my chaotic mind!!
Hope the God is listening to your wish and grants it soon 🙂
Nice photos Mohan; Good to know through your pics that decent amount of water has been available this season for crops (sugarcane, groundnut, paddy). Hope the tanks/reservoirs also get abundant water to last till the next season. I envy you for the opportunity you got to visit the fields/farms and share the simple village/countryside life again. 🙂
I am hoping for that too! Think it is time for you too to plan for vacations 🙂

They’re simply beautiful. It’s amazing how much life there is in these pictures. Really nice. 🙂
Also, can you please tell me where this place is? I’d love to go here on a holiday. 🙂
Absolutely!!! Well, this is my native place, Chittoor. From this place the world famous Tirupati is about 50kms. It looks green only till Jan…. after that all dried up soil 🙁
Nice pictures brought back some memories of my native place near Mangalore. Will be visiting in December, so hope to catch up with nature there.
Wow.. good to know that you are from Mangalore! Have fun and do share pics when you visit.
Wonderful pictures Mohan – The flickr integration was seamless – no wonder Nalini thought it was a video;)
Thanks Sowmya! yes, using flickr is very easy and also the photo quality looks enhanced in flickr compared to any other photo sharing service.

Only the sound of distant ‘Chakki’ (where food grains are grinded) and birds humming are missing.
