FloristThis small stall is situated in a small town where even accessing thesmallest commodity is difficult.
Flower Stall• Many people call a shop containing flowers a florist. Well this is a miniature version of a florist in a small town named Manjoor, India.• The population of the town is around 2500-5000.• This florist sells most of his flower stock in the morning or late night as every morning the people in India worship God and everything which symbolizes God. We use the flowers as a garland to worship God.• The customers who buy flowers from this florist are mainly married women.• Every flower has a different price and this price is based on the number of feet(of the flower) one buys.• You must be wondering where the flowers come from…. Well the person buys the flowers from the nearest town that is Ooty which is an hour away!!
My TownThis is a picture of my town - Ooty. It is one of the most visited hillstations in India.
Ooty..• The reason why Ooty is one of the most visited hill stations in India is because this place has the best weather throughout the year.• Other than that there is a lot of scenic beauty and a lot of wildlife too !!• Due to rapid urbanization the amount of vehicles as well as buildings have increased which is spoiling the beauty of this wonderful place.• This town has also become too noisy and very polluted due to the various types of crowd which come here.
Where it stands out from all the other places..• It is not densely populated (5000-10000 people)• People earning a decent wage can be very happy as the cost of living here is low.• There is so much to see – wildlife, scenery, etc.• The weather is very unique• Different variety of Oils, tea, coffee, etc. which you will never find anywhere else in the world.
Where Ooty lacks …• Too many people visit this hill station throughout the year making it very populated and very polluted too.• Infrastructure mainly roads have to be improved• Public transport is very bad
NanjanadThis is a small village situated about 15 kms from Ooty.
Nanjanad• This village has a population of around 500 persons.• The only way to get to this place if you don’t have a vehicle is by bus. A bus travels to this location every hour, so if you miss a bus you will have to wait another hour to catch the next one.• The road to this place is very bad• The houses in which the people live in are not fully done up. Suppose there is a heavy shower, the water enters most of the houses. The roofing is mostly done with the help of broken tiles or sheets.• In this village majority of the people don’t have the luxuries of a TV, washing machine, etc.• The men of a particular household leaves his house early in the morning and returns back late in the evening. The women usually cook and clean up the house and also take care of the children.• The nearest school is around 4 kms away and the children have to either catch a bus or walk the entire way.• One thing that should be really appreciated is the fact that no matter how little these people have all of them are so happy !!
