Some events are so memorable…. simple yet extremely nice…

 

we went to our Gaun yesterday… and not just us..whole of our immediate relatives… my dada..and my fathers all chacha/tayya and phuphii and their all aulaad..

i have met some of emm after many years and i didnt even know their names…i was on call on saturday..and unlike most of the other calls my saturday night went very busy all night long. i slept at 4:30am and at 8:00 my father was at the hospital to pick me up..and from their we dirctly went to our gaun..(Chirrrah)… and am happpy i didnt go back home to sleep..and went with them

none of our family member lives there …but the houses are pretty nice.. our house is in betweeen the khaait..and there was sarsooon alll around…there was no typical village home around…

   (sarsoon ki khushboo is bohat piyari)

kher…what is most remarkable is the way the chachiiis made mattar pulao and chicken…though my dada had offered to bring Daig with him..and she all refused k sab mil k bnain gay..n believe me nimak mirach was not as good but the taste was remarkable… and we all enjoyed that part most… then the making of HAlwa and tea on the same brick stove ..

 (abu’s chachi making chawal…initial phase..note the clay around the daigchaa??? just to keep it from gettn black..when they are going to wash it it will be glittering silver..like one lying on the floor)

 (Tea)

🙂  we were mashAllah 50 plus people there (25 men..16 women..and all other kids)..and all of them were so nice..simple

🙂 inshallah we plan to goto Ammi’s gaun with nanihaal soon.. there we’d have B.B.Q. inshallah…that house of nana ji is surrounded by all matti k typical houses of gaun…a must visit place.

  lucnh when i started…a chacha put in dahii…and a chchi had added a piece of chicken… it was soo yummy… but look what happen in the end:

 (right one’s mine)the chachas , they kept comming and putting some boti in everyone’s plate…uffff at the end i was just about to have a vommit.4 pieces in my plate…..when one of the chacha said..i would know if you have enjoyed or not if you finish whats in ur plate… so took another 20 minutes to finsh.

  did i mention? she is the lady who was cutting “chara” for her bakriaaan..and we went into the khaitt with her permission..she was the only garaaeeen around…

    After watching these beautiful pictures of a village and reading a wonderful post from you describing village life and everything else ,………………. for the first time i am thinking that having a village of once own is also a blessing of Allah. As my mom and dad both belong to Lahore city , i have no idea how a village life is.

    So go on and enjoy because there are many like me who can only think of having a wonderful experience like that. 🙂
