As a child and a young adult spending summer breaks in my village, I had no shortage of excitements, fun, and life altering experiences. Life was enriched by the unconditional love of my grandparents, innocent friendship of village buddies, and shy looks from girls. Running around the yards, taking a dip in the river, playing on the swings, and riding bullock carts to and from the bus station while stepping on cow poop were routine. The cultural richness I gained during the village festivities was inspirational. Year after year, I experienced the traditions, and rituals in the simple setting of my village.
