Top Unique Village in india

 

Top Unique Village in india

Shetfal, Maharashtra.

Arun Mane, state unit president of Maharashtra Rajya Shetkari Parishad who has been fighting for the cause of farmers since 1980, says: “All the funds given by the government for irrigation projects have turned out to be dead investment. The drought in the state is not natural; it is government-made calamity.” The situation can change if government takes up scientific management of rain water, ground water and water stored in lakes and ponds. The annual average rainfall in Jat and Atpadi talukas is around 300 mm. This is not a good rainfall, but sufficient to sustain traditional crops like sorghum, pearl millet and wheat. More than half of the rain water runs off as there is not mechanism to arrest it and force its percolation. According to Mane, there should be restriction on ground water resources exploitation and also on crop pattern. Taluka-level committees should be formed to monitor water extraction and its use. It has been observed that wealthy farmers are exploiting ground water resources as per their whims. Mane suggests banning sugar mills and prohibiting sugarcane cultivation and digging borewells in Jat and Atpadi talukas. Even if the farmers in that area save 10 per cent water, it will solve the problem of annual drinking water of drought hit area, Mane says.


Shani Shignapur

New constructions have to honour these protocols, too. The police station – which only opened in September 2015 and has not yet received a single complaint from the villagers – has no front door; while the United Commercial Bank opened India’s first “lockless” branch in Shani Shingnapur in 2011, installing a glass entrance in the spirit of transparency and a barely visible remote-controlled electromagnetic lock in respect of the villagers’ beliefs.

Because of this strange history, Shani Shingnapur attracts devotees from across India. At least 40,000 visitors pour in each day to see the once-humble shrine that has grown into a large temple with extensive property and donations.

Darandale is one of the many villagers who want to keep talking about the tradition of the village, but there are many others who feel that it is time to part ways with what they feel is a superstition. Till 2010, Shingnapur had no major record of thefts or pilfering, but things have changed since then. In 2011, gold ornaments worth Rs 70,000 kept in an unlocked cupboard, were stolen from the house of a temple trustee and other petty thefts were reported. Anil Behrani, in-charge of the Sonai police station which has jurisdiction over the village, says, “Though there hasn’t been a significant rise in the number in the last couple of years, there have been incidents of vehicle thefts, pickpocketing and snatching from areas around the temple.”

The shrine for Shani Devstahn, a black rock over five feet tall, installed on a platform without a roof, sits at the heart of the village of Shani Shingnapur in the Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra. It’s this temple that strengthens the local tradition of not installing doors and locks to the village houses. Once a humble affair, the temple has now grown into a large trust with extensive property and donations that run into lakhs. But it still does not have a door, much like the homes of the 4,000-odd residents of the village, where empty door frames mark the entrance to houses. “We believe that if a person steals anything, or does anything dishonest, he faces a Sade Saati (a period of seven-and-a-half years of bad luck). Somethings bad happens in the family — court cases, accidents, deaths, losses in business. My cousin had once installed wooden panes at the entrance of his house. His car met with an accident the very next day. Shani’s power is indisputable and he watches over this village. Otherwise, why would people come here from all over the world?,” asks Anil Darandale, a cashier in the “foreign currency” section of the temple donation department.

Hiver Bazar, Maharashtra

We always think of Yashwant Place when we're craving momos and beer, but you could also score some really good leather jackets here. They have a lot of stores, so there is an amazing variety to choose from, including suede and camel leather. And the best part is that it would not leave you empty pocketed at the end. A suede jacket could start from Rs 1000- 2000, so it all depends on your bargaining and convincing skills. Good luck!

If you're looking for high quality, branded stuff, but in a budget, then Chor Bazaar is the right place for you. The only drawback is that you'd have to wake up super early and reach there by 6 am to get the fresh maal from their stock. The later in the day you come, lesser the choice of leather jackets at your disposal.

In 1995, only a tenth of the village's land was arable and 168 of its 182 families were below the poverty line. By 2010, the average income of the village had increased twenty-fold: 50 of the villagers had become millionaires (in Indian rupees), and only three families were below the poverty line. The grass harvest increased from 100 tonnes in 2000 to 6,000 tonnes in 2004, and the milk production rose from 150 litres a day in the mid-1990s to 4,000 in 2010.[6]


From graphic tees, to fake electronics, Palika Bazaar has it all. We often mistake this place to be an all men's market, but that's far from true because Palika has some really good leather jackets for both men and women. We recommend being a little cautious because you might get caught in a fake leather scam here. So, make sure you do your quality check before buying!

Hiware Bazar is a village in the Ahmednagar District of Maharashtra, India. It is noted for its irrigation system and water conservation program, with which it has fought the drought and drinking water problems.[1]

In 1990, after Popatrao Pawar was elected as the sarpanch (village chief), the village used funds from government schemes and launched a program to recover its past glory.[2] The village is conceptualized and planned after Ralegan Siddhi, another village noted for its conservational initiatives.

The villagers implemented a drip-irrigation system to conserve water and soil, and to increase the food production. They avoided crops like sugarcane and bananas, which require a high use of water. The program included rainwater harvesting, digging trenches around the hill contours to trap water, afforestation and building of percolation tanks. These initiatives were complemented by a program for social change, which included a ban on liquor, adoption of family planning, mandating HIV/AIDS testing before marriages and shramdaan (voluntary labour for development of the village).[1]

This little Tibetan colony is a popular haunt in North Campus when it comes to shopping. Their leather products are quite durable, even if it is faux leather imported from China. Also, the designs are pretty up to date and trendy. The shopkeepers (Tibetan refugees) mark products at a reasonable price as their rents aren't very high. So, it's a win-win situation for us!

Paharganj is a market known for all kinds of hipster and leather goods. They have some really well designed and high quality leather boots, shoes and jackets for sale. The best thing about the market is that the shopkeepers are super flexible if you keep up a good conversation with them. They might just end up giving you a really good deal for a leather product. We've tried it, so should you!

Jambar, Gujarat

Documents a “best practice” – a successful gender-balanced irrigation intervention in which women were given control over an irrigation technology. The study evaluates the approach taken by the implementing NGO, the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme, in terms of its replicability in other areas where women share in farm activities and decision making.


Kodini, Kerala Village

There are some places in the world that just take everything science thinks it knows and shreds that rule-book to pieces. One such place is a small, unprepossessing village in India, which boasts a birth-rate of twins so high it borders on the impossible! On the surface, there’s nothing remarkable about Kodinhi, a modest settlement in Kerala, India. It’s home to around 2,000 families, but the remarkable thing is that there are at least 400 pairs of twins in those families! Twins, Twins Everywhere As a country, India has one of the world’s lowest rates for pairs of twins born. The average is no higher than 9 per 1,000 births, but the people of Kodinhi certainly don’t seem to have gotten that memo. There, the rate is estimated to be around 45 per 1,000 births! This is one of the highest anywhere in the world. Clearly, something doesn’t quite add up here. What’s the explanation for this one, then, science? In short, there really isn’t one. Not that scientists haven’t tried. In the late 2000s, The Daily Mail reports, local doctor Krishnan Sribiju took a look into the case. He said at
the time, “Indian, and by that I mean Asian, people on the sub-continent have the lowest acknowledged incidences of twinning in the world at around four per thousand.” “In addition, there is no IVF treatment here because of the prohibitive cost. Global rates of twins being born, especially in the western world, have increased because of artificial insemination.” Another general factor in heightened rates of twinning, he continued, is that they tended to be born to more mature women, who were over 5ft 3in tall. Again, though, the people of Kodinhi weren’t about to fit into that neat little pigeonhole. As a rule, they marry in their late teens and begin families soon after. In addition to that, the women of the village average around 5ft in height. Where Are They All Coming From? Other possible explanations have included the diet of the people of Kodinhi. It doesn’t appear that there’s anything in the water (or the food), though, as there’s nothing out of the ordinary in their diet compared to other communities in the area. Yet another logical dead end. All Sribiju could conclude was, “To the best of my knowledge this medical marvel began somewhere between 60 to 70 years ago.” What is it about this village and others like it? What began a few generations ago? It’s even tough to say whether it’s connected to the people themselves or the area where they live. There are reports that women who have married people from Kodinhi and moved there have also exhibited a high rate of twin births, as have those who have moved away and started families elsewhere! Researchers continue to conduct genetic studies of the twins of Kodinhi, hoping to find some sort of answer. As of yet, we don’t know anything definitive, or even if we ever will. There are some things science just cannot explain, however hard it tries. A Worldwide Mystery Another interesting factor to the tale is that India’s Kodinhi is not the only Twin Town in the world. Far from it, in fact. In 2016, it was reported that a research team had arrived in Kodinhi. The goal of their investigation was to compare certain genetic factors of Kodinhi’s residents with those of parts of Vietnam, Nigeria and Brazil, where there are also similar communities (Hung Loc Commune, Igbo-Ora and Candido Godo respectively). One member of the study, Dr. Thirumalaswami Velavan of Tuebingen University, said that the research “would identify genetic factors determining the hereditability of twins. There is no known genetic link identified yet for identical twinning and the real factor behind the phenomenon is yet to be ascertained” “The outcome of the study shall lay a basis to understand the underlying genetic and epigenetic factors that may hold key answers for the high twinning rate in Kodinhi.” As yet, we really don’t have any of these key answers. The mystery of Kodinhi will remain a mystery for now, but it’s one that’s always worth trying to tackle. After all, it’s possible that communities such as these could contribute to our understanding of genetics and fertility; perhaps in time offering some salvation for infertile couples. In the meantime, the people of Kodinhi continue to delight in their newfound fame and mysterious village. It’s the birthplace of TAKA, the Twins and Kins Association, an organization that has made it their goal to educate and help those who bore Twin Town’s impossible twins.

Mattur, Karnataka 100% Sanskrit speaking village,

Tucked away in the verdant Shimoga district of Karnataka, Mattur is a tiny hamlet on the banks of the perennial river Tunga. The villagers of Mattur, who lead a Vedic lifestyle, chant the ancient texts and converse in Sanskrit, have made sure the ancient language flourishes in their village.

Aditya turned to Flipkart when he required packs of electronic components — Arduino boards and sensors — for his college projects. Their prices online range between ₹500–700, and it saves students like him the hassle of hunting for them in the local market. He has also purchased mobiles and accessories in the past. His current phone, in which there is no space left to download the Flipkart app, will be replaced as soon as he begins working. “I shop through the website and have mostly paid by debit card. Paying digitally is convenient and safe,” he says. From his personal experience of online shopping in general he finds that while it is convenient, especially in villages like Mattur, delivery delays or defective products are a turn-off.
