You may encounter vast expanses of rice and rose plantations depending upon the season. You will also cross various small villages where you may see small shops selling fresh sweets and brewing up chai in earthen pots, people gathered around a tree smoking the Indian Hookah, women attending to their children and some street vendors calling out on people to sell their vegetables. Whichever village you cross, you will notice a concoction of colours right from the dressing of men and women to the paints put up on the walls of houses.
