Indian village dwellings are built very close to one another in a nucleated settlement, with small lanes for passage of people and sometimes carts. Village fields surround the settlement and are generally within easy walking distance. Generally, land, prosperity, and power go together.

Villagers feel a sense of village pride and honour, and the reputation of a village depends upon the behavior of all of its residents”.
