India is a country with a huge cultural diversity many many of them that date back to the first civilization. With so many cultures you are bound to find some unique sightings. We would like to tell you about some of the Indias most unique villages.
Shani Shingnapur, Maharashtra
Shani Shingnapur, also known as the door less village of India. when we imagine staying in a place without any door it sure gives us goosebumps but for these people, this is nothing out of the ordinary. Forget doors, people keep all of there valuables and money out in the open. This village also has India’s first and only lock-less bank.
We all were amazed in school when we saw twins for the first time. I even thought one of them was the clone of other. Well, this village in India has more than 400 twins. Even though it is rare for Indian mothers to give birth to twins out of 2500 people living in this village 414 of them were born as twins or triplets.
What is your first reaction when you see a snake? I know for a fact that I would run as fast as I could but that’s not the case with the people of Shetpal. Shetpal is a place where people and snakes live in a co-habit. Cobras move freely throughout the village, even inside the house. Every house has a resting place built especially for snakes. What is even more unbelievable is the fact that there have been no cases of snake bites in the village.
When we think about any village we see farms and children swimming in lakes but we also imagine no electricity, limited drinking water and no cell service. But that is not the case with Punsari. The village has all the modern amenities anyone could imagine like WiFi, CCTV, Solar-powered street lights, Health centres and everything we can think of in a developed city.
This small village had made India proud well before anyone in the country even started thinking about the Swatch Bharat. Back in 2003, the village had earned the title of the ‘Asia’s cleanest Village’.
