The Little Village on Godavari Banks
Get up, go to work, go home, go to bed, repeat – are you tired of the rat race? Have you had enough of the monotony of daily life and just want to get away? It doesn’t matter if you want to get away for a week, a month...whatever!!!You just want a break!!!! To picturesque locations, to the countryside, to a resort from where one can overlook the life-skiff-fishermen launch their cockleshell boats, large flocks of domesticated ducks waddle down to the water from thatched houses on the banks, aimless cattle graze in fertile pastures, lotuses float here and there in small shallow lakes, canals or waterways vary in dimension from being wide enough to be dubbed lakes, lush green rice fields thin out into the distance, where there are amazing historic monuments and temple, fascinating cultural heritage and exceptional scenic beauty, beautiful beaches, serene backwaters, wildlife sanctuaries, unending acres of coconut groves but which are small enough to offer you a secluded holiday, sun streaked riversides, the backbeat of waves striking shore, a musky earthen fragrance, and coconut palms dancing to the breeze off the river.....
Mmmmmm.....sounds tempting and quite irresistible!!!!Doesn’t it!!!
