My Village: Vellulla

The small village of Vellulla, population 6,831 people, is surrounded by small hills and smaller villages. The people of Vellulla are farmers who grow rice, corn and sugar cane, carpenters, potter, charkha, and goldsmith. There is one public school that serves Vellulla’s children and the children of the surrounding villages. 

I attended this public school when I grew up in Vellulla. My parents and grandparents (what they did for work, etc). 

Vellulla celebrates cultural festivals every year where the entire village gathers at one place. Generative social gatherings featuring emotionally charged connection with others is a regular life practice. This collaborative social connection is something Vellulla can offer the rest of the world when they are connected through PrayogIllu reading rooms.
