How is the Life at Dangrol ?

The Village life feels slow & peaceful, it’s noiseless and lets you interpret yourself. I get up at 6 AM, and work in the  farms for couple of hours with my Cousins. I generally don’t do physical one, but help them by ploughing the field on sitting on the Tractor. I get up here with the chirping sound of Birds, and here we also get to see the Peacocks early Morning. The Life is slow over here, it almost takes 5 Minutes of buffering before one could surf anything on Internet. I take my dinner early at 7 PM, after which drink milk with Jaggery, before I got to bed early in night.

How’s the Slow life at Village different that from the City’s Life?

It’s quiet different. People here love one by his virtues, his family not by profession or work. The Air Quality is so pure over here that If I could walk 2 Kilometers in the City, I could walk here for 10 KMs, just cause of Air. There’s nothing adulterated here, everything is pure whether it’s milk or grains. I generally love to drink milk, and the purity of it here asks me to drink it more. The life in Cities is physically more disturbing. People in Cities recognize me because of the work wherever I am, but here they do so because of my Virtue.

BCCI has done the right job or not?

The Officials at BCCI are very sensible, they have always taken the right decision and did the same this time. Corona Virus is dangerous and so BCCI is very sensitive about the Issue. Postponing the IPL is a great decision because the safety of Public comes first for the Officials at BCCI. They postponed the India-South Africa Series, where I was also present, and I came here in Shamli with my sons after that.

How are you Maintaining Fitness ?

The people here are more fit then many of us (he says with a laughter on his face ), they give a tough competition to me. I run with many boys here, they run faster than me. I use the skipping Ropes as well to keep my fitness up. Little bit of working in farm also helps me in doing my fitness work.
