No Doors, No Locks

Jun 7, 2005

There's a village in Maharastra where there are no doors, no locks. It's a tribal village, close to the holy city of Shirdi, named Shinapur.

People of Shinapur believe that if you steal, you will go blind. So no one steals, no one has doors, no one locks anything and no one is afraid of losing anything.

Ironically, the city goer who told me about Shinapur also shared another interesting opinion: "But, you know, the people of Shinapur are really backwards."

Perhaps backwards might be more forward than forwards. :)
