Jatana Pind - My ancestral village

Recommended Posts

This is my ancestral pind. I've not been there since I was a child and my parents separation (and potential land disputes) means that I'm pretty much exiled from it. This is obviously an interesting video for me. I know my family on that side had a close affiliation with Rara Sahib in terms of spiritual influences. Note how the village heads seem to be largely ex-military, and also the continuation of old folk religious practices with that shrine. The farmers in the video seem to have prospered from the sale of milk (and milk derived products like paneer) to the surrounding areas. Ludhiana is close by and would (I imagine) provide a large market for their products. 

I thought I'd share this. Do people think they scrubbed up the place before the cameras came in?

You are my neighbor, I originally belonged to Marauli Kalan near Morinda, about 15 kms from Jatana. And yes, the village is spruced up before the recording.
