Unconditional love

In India, vast majority of the population still lives in the rural areas. Life in the villages is organic, rooted, rustic, devoid of the technical and modern amenities. Unlike the urban kids that are occupied and obsessed with their gadgets and gizmos, the children in the rural India only have nature as their source of recreation and entertainment. They have deep connection and vast knowledge of their natural surroundings and an intimate, loving bond with the domesticated animals. The domestic animals not only sustain livelihood in the villages but are also great companions and friends for the budding generation.
