The lifestyle of villagers inspire us, how to live life healthfully and stress-less. They always wake up early in morning. Men go to farming and women start their household works .There are lot of activities, that we can do 1) you can get the experience of village home stay by visiting local family, you can see, how the villagers give the warm welcome to their guests, like its saying In India ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’, means welcome to guest like welcome to the God. On arrival of you in village, Each member of the family will have wonderful smiles on the faces, and having the glass of Lassi ( butter milk) in their hands, basically Lassi is the welcome drink in our Punjab for the guests. You will be very glad to feel the family environment, suddenly you will feel you aren’t stranger anymore. All the men and women surrounds you for asking your good health and to tell you about themselves
2) if you are a man then family man will invite you go out and see their big fields if you are a lady then family women will invite you to help in the kitchen, to cook the food.

You will enjoy to wash the vegetables with water and chop by your hand and to cook it by yourselves. It’s saying in India, watching is not experience, be the part of life, drift with present moments.
3)As I told if you are a man then you will have a time for fun too, if you are found of driving then you must try driving skills on big large tractors, it is going to be totally different experience of your life. In the afternoon you can make a get together with some old fellows under the banyan tree which would be in the middle of the village ( called Sant). Even you can say this, THE NEWS CHANNEL of the village, because under the banyan tree people share their neighborhood current news with each other. You can enjoy playing cards and other local games with the kids and the youngsters like Kabaddi (local wrestling), Gulli Danda( local hockey) and many more. After having the hot lunch with the family you will think, it is hard to leave the people and say goodbye. You will remember always waving hands of the villagers with their smiling eyes.
