For a long time I wanted to post about my experience staying with Junaid family in his native village but with so many stories waiting to be told and each of them as juicy as one of those fresh coconuts long the Gad river, I never really got to it.
So today, as I found the photo of the completed new bridge over that river posted by Junaid on Facebook, it threw me 18 months back, way back considering all the traveling since, and I felt right about today for posting some of those photos from staying with his family at that time.
Looking again at the title I gave to this photo I thought i should explain, to those of you who haven't yet been to India, that the term 'Native place or 'native village' is the way Indian reffer to the place origin of their family. I got so used to it myself that i forgot how in other English speaking cultures it may be used as a way to refer to primitive or savages. Nothing like that here, English is used differently in different cultures...
