Small home amidst trees


Horticulture is not only a way of living by earning, but also a way making the earth beautiful .Horticulturists do it everywhere. Indian style of Horticulturing is both peaceful and economical.Here, the environment of a South Indian Horticulturist is sketched.

I wish to introduce here a Brahmin family living in an interior village called Bayar- on the border of Kerala and Karnataka states.Here, two brothers are living together with their families,i.e. wife and children.The house is a tiled house with all neatness and comfort inside but not showy outside.

Around the house there is arecanut plantation, and green trees stand tall, reaching the sky. In front of the house is the wide space which they use largely to spread ripe areca nuts.It will also be used to spread other plantation products, as the need arises.At one of it, they have made a badminton court, to play the sport in the evening.

The environment I am showing here is of Mr. Sreepathi Bhat and his brother Mr. Krishnaraj.They live here with their wives, and children.Totally there are about ten members in the family.All of them live with good understanding.

All in the family have a good taste for fine arts.Sreepathi Bhat's wife, Mrs.Shashikala, has an appreciable skill in embroidering.(Refer to my previous hub http://prasadjain.hubpages.com/hub/Beautiful-Embroidery-works-by-an-Indian-housewife )Mr. Krishnaraj is doing research on flutes.Mr.Sreepathi Bhat himself has a flair for writing poems for children and he is a silent man. Mrs. Nivedita-wife of Sri. Krishnaraj, is a violinist.

The plantation they have developed has varieties of trees like- Areca, Coccum, Papaya,banana, etc. They have grown Pepper climbers, Jack fruit trees also. Different types of flowers are also seen around their home.

Such is the common environment around an Indian horticulturist's house.It's greener, peaceful, multi crop environment that pleases visitor's eyes and hearts.

Anybody who visits rural India, should make it a point to visit a planter's home atleast once.You will be wel comed heartily. Contact: krishnarajabayar@gmail.com
