A tale of a stunningly delightful and enchanting Indian village, this story brings to life the daily proceedings in this picturesque locale. Balakheda, almost regarded
as a Paradise on Earth, is the setting of this book. The basic concepts that are outlined in the book are of its twelve heterogeneous families, their creeds which incorporate Sikhs, Muslims, Rajputs, and different communities living together in peace and concordance. It gives suggestive descriptions of their straightforwardness and goodness, of their victory and inadequacies and, of their humour and feeling
Its occupants are both knowledgeable and uneducated, yet they are benevolent and quite down to earth. There had been no fight, no homicide and no illicit enactment whatsoever. They avoid all these sorts of wickedness and live a basic existence with affection for all and malevolence to none which make it a flawless location on earth and is dubbed as a Paradise. It can also be seen that a lot of people can at sometimes get fed up of their basic existences and this can lead to some sorts of dissatisfaction.
Physical connection to these stories is furnished by a regular area and a normal contact with an individual who shows up in each story and whose solid counsel and constructive activities have startlingly inverse or unfriendly impacts on the life of the persons he interacts with. There are many different areas that are taken care of by the author in this book. One can get a distinctive look into the mental reservations that are present in the minds of the people of India and it is for this reason that the book can provide a great perspective.
