    *சோழ வம்சம்          சோறு போடும் வம்சம்*
என்பது போல, வலியவர் வயிறு நிறைய பசியாற்றும் மக்கள்.

     ஒருஅழகான கிராமம். நீரோடை, குளங்கள், வயல்கள், மரங்கள், இடைக்கிடையே சிறிய காடுகள். காடுகளில் மயில்கள், மான்கள்.இன்னும் சொல்லிக்கொண்டே போகலாம். அந்த அளவு இயற்கையின் ராஜ்சியம் நிறைந்த ஓர் அற்புதமான கிராமம் .
      கண்களை கவரும் பச்சை பசேலேன  வயல் வெளிக்காட்சிகள்.கண்ட தூரம் எங்கும் காட்சியளிக்கும் பசுமை. காலை நேரத்தில் கண்விழித்தெழுந்து தன்னுடைய வயல் காணிகளை பார்வையிட செல்லும் விவசாயிகள்.     வயல் வரம்புகளில் நடந்து செல்ல, நெற்கதிர்களில் படிந்திருக்கும்  பனித்துளிகள். 

அந்த விவசாயின் பாதங்களில் பட்டுத்தெரித்து அவன் உள்ளத்தை குளிரவைக்கும் அருமையான காட்சிகள்.

அடடா...என்ன சந்தோசம்...

மேலும், ஒரு 100 ஏக்கர் பரப்பளவில் அமைந்துள்ள ஏரி பச்சை போர்வை போர்த்தியது போன்று காட்சி அளிக்கும். உங்களை அன்புடனும், பண்புடன், பாசத்துடன் வரவேற்கும்  தாய்மார்கள். இயற்கையாகவே உதவும் குணம் படைத்த கிராம இளைஞர்கள்.      இங்கு, கண நேரத்தில் வெளியூர் செல்ல பேருந்துகளும் இயக்கப்படுகின்றன.
