Weekend trip to our farm

Over the weekend we visited our village, less than an hour’s drive from Vizag (45 kms). Here are a few pictures from our mango grove, fruits and vegetables grown in the backyard of our ancestral home, taken during this trip.

  1. Hi Sailu,

    Now I am totally jealous, those GUAVAS and MANGO trees are the kind of fruits that I really missed. You’ve been so blessed with nature -sigh now I am terribly homesick and just can’t wait to go back home soon.

    Take care!


  2. sailu,
    Your farm photos are awesome. Makes the mango snaps on my site seem like far away memories.Enjoy them, all the more for the indians missing them in US.

  14. Hi Sailu,
    Great work ! Keep it up.
    I am from Vizag, now living in Boston. You brought back many memories of vizag and my visits to grand parents place (a village) in West Godavari.


    Thank you for your kind words, Raj and am so glad the pics brought back memories of your grandparents home..:)

  15. Sailu, I havent seen you,But i can see your nostalgic mind from your website. You are a nice girl-may be like me..!

  16. Sailaja garu,

    Marvelous effort! Like many of visitors to this site, we too feel all the void of living outside of India and some of the simple yet exotic privileges of living in a rural setting.

    We grew up in Vizag too and used to visit our grand parents near Srikakulam. Again, we must not be sad and complain as this kind of living in the United States in our choosing.

    I only hope that such pristine rural settings and living traditions will last for future generations to experience and cherish.

    Once again great work and many thanks for the content!

  17. Oh! What mouth-watering guavas and mangoes! When, oh when, will the day come that we move back. I am from Visakhapatnam too. How I envy my friends and you too who live in Vizag! Makes one think – what am I doing in this far-off country??!!

  18. I should go and visit my grandparents’ village before all my relatives move out of there. Thanks for giving me the inspiration.

  19. Great pictures Sailu gaaru! Those mangoes are really tempting..I’ve always wanted to grow veggies in the whatever little space our urban home offers..these pics are inspiring
