My ancestral home near Goa-Maharashtra border : A typical Konkani house


In many parts of India, women have to fetch water from a long distance. Distance increases as heat increases.

Typical Indian farmer provides shelter to his animals just like he has. It is often constructed inside his own homes' premises and very near. It is done so as to protect the animals from predators like Leopard, tigers etc.
Slanted roofs help to drain water quickly during rainy season

Houses like boxes kept over one another: A view from Suburban of Mumbai/Thane

A typical scenery: House built near the paddy field


Lonely house in midst of the paddy field, from north-eastern part of India: Miao, Arunachal Pradesh

    1. Dear Ann, its really balancing act and charming. Do visit Indian rural part to see it. Although we like to watch, its nightmare for them. Everyday fetching the water over 2 to 5 kilometers its not a joke. BTW, Welcome to the blog. Keep following for more.
