2011: Aghane Village

Our next  stop on the field trip was at the Aghane village comprising of 16 households totaling 81 people. The villages Ahupe, Pimpargane, Aghane, Doni and Nhaved are spread along the top of the Sahyadri ranges, in the Western Ghats in the Ambegaon block of Pune district. These places have an annual rainfall of 3500 - 4000 mm.

I was there with a group of 30 people on such a monsoon rainy day. The villagers kindly allowed as to sleep in the school hall. They even prepared simple home style dinner for us.....
Some typical houses of the village. The place where we stayed was similar to the large dwelling in the background and u can see it was very cold and foggy;  something we never experience in Mumbai.

                                                                  The neighboring house.

 Next morning getting ready to leave in the bus, after a wonderful repast of delicious Pohe and sweet tea, I clicked this through the bus entrance.  Can u spot who i spotted ?

Leaving the village descending the mountain the next morning. This was the view at 8 am.....
