I was born and have grown up in the country in a small village beside a beautiful river. My village is surrounded in a hedge of green nature. Most of the houses in the village are built of brick and have red tiled roofs.In the village there is an old Temple Mundamuka Ayyapankav with high Peepal trees around it.In the village there flows quietly a clear and blue river. When I was young, I used to swim in the river with my friends. How can I forget the wonderful time on this river playing cricket, football and also fishing.On this ground covered with soft grass we used to Play and had the time we made paper boats through small canals.My villagers are very friendly and helpful. They are willing to offer mutual help in any case and always get on with one another harmoniously.My village is rather small indeed but I like it very much because I was born and have grown up there and spent my happiest childhood among the simple and hard-working people who always feel attached to their native land.
