Home-stay at the village

My involvement with the Kisan Morcha (Farmer’s Protest, 2020-21) led to friendships with farmers from Punjab and invitations to visit their villages. One such village has become my second home. I now divide my time between Delhi and Chamaru, a small village half-way between Patiala and Ambala.

Life in the village is slow and quiet; it offers ample downtime to reflect and experience the land, the seasons and the cycles of farming up close. For those who are attracted to such a life and would like to experience it from time to time, I am offering home-stay at an old house in the interior of our village; it has three bedrooms, an outhouse, veranda, courtyard, terrace and kitchen; and offers single and twin-share occupancy, in all, it can comfortably take up to four or five guests at a time.    

Just right for a simple holiday, alone or with another, it’s also ideal for work and practice or even small residencies. A studio space can also be made available within the village for workshops, meetings and residences.

While the kitchen is equipped for basic cooking, there is an arrangement for hot meals to be delivered to the house, or for guest’s to visit and eat with local families.

The proceeds from this home-stay will go to Pehal, a local NGO that is committed to strengthening the basis of pre-primary and primary education at the sarkari schools in and around Chamaru.
