CLOSE TO YOUR ROOTS - MORACHI CHINCHOLI
We are all children of the earth. Long long ago, we tilled the earth and grew crops for
food. Human habitats were small villages or clusters of houses, we lived in nature, we lived
among birds and animals, and we lived as part of nature. Gradual changes in civilization and
human progress led us away from nature. Towns and cities developed with growth in
industrialization and our world became mechanical. Our lifestyle changed, our values changed
and we drifted far apart from our people, our villages and our roots. Yet, somewhere within us
we feel a bond with village life that has not severed permanently. We are haunted by our old way
of life and going back to it once in a while is a rejuvenating, refreshing and fulfilling experience.
Most people have permanently settled in cities and have sold off their lands. They have
no connection with village life although they crave for it occasionally. Whenever you long for a
brief change in life, we invite you to Morachi Chincholi. Morachi Chincholi is a small village
situated near Pune-Ahmednagar highway about 55 km. from Pune. It can be reached easily from
Pune or Nagar. Visitors from Mumbai can use the Talegaon – Pune shortcut via Chakan to reach
MorachiChincholi on Nagar road. The place has a double advantage of being at a convenient
location and distance from Pune and Mumbai, yet it is tucked away comfortably off the main
highway and far from the din and crowd.
The word ‘Mor” in Marathi means ‘peacock’. The actual name of the village is
‘Chincholi’. ‘Morachi Chincholi’ literally means ‘Chincholi of peacocks’ that is ‘village of
peacocks. The village gets its name owing to a large number of peacocks that have made the
place their home. They wander about fearlessly, they eat from your hands, and they screech at
nights and dance in the monsoon, spreading their beautiful colourful plumes, stepping lightly and
gracefully as they move back and forth. Indeed, it is a heavenly sight that you cannot miss!!!
As people came to know about this wonderful heaven on earth, they began to visit the
place for a change, to be amongst peacocks. The villagers attended the visitors, offered food and
often lodgings for the night. It soon turned into a business opportunity for them and they
established resorts of the kind urbanites prefer. People from cities are used to a life of comfort
and luxury. Accordingly, today you will find luxurious AC and non AC accommodation to suit
your budget. The resort arranges for short trips to nearby temples and sight-seeing spots. When
you are on holiday, you love to eat a variety of food. Muliti-cuisine restaurants provide tongue
tickling food both vegetarian and non-vegetarian.
While you are at Morachi Chincholi, you get the advantage of the old and the new. While
you lie in comfort and luxury, you are in the centre of a quiet and peaceful village. Most
important, you are surrounded by peacocks. You are in the midst of nature.
You are close to your roots!!!
