The house of my father's childhood


Few weeks back when I visited my parents in Himachal, I also planned to take a round of our village. This is the old house in middle of the village, where my dad has spent his childhood. Me and my sister have never stayed here, but used to come here during the day to play hide and seek with our cousins.

Few years back another family bought this house from our grandfather and later they also moved to another location. No one lives in this house now. This house has one kitchen, a hall & 4 rooms. 

I am not sure how old this house is but it's definitely more than 60 years old. Unfortunately there are many such houses in the village. Next generations have moved near to the roads or bigger cities. It's a debatable trend.

Such a lovely thing to write about. Please try to find out the age of this house... probably you can convert it into a memorial.

During my recent visit last week I realised that this structure is no more there and there is a new building built on the same land. It was a little emotional moment but it was pretty easy to move on in few minutes as I hardly visited this place often. Hope that this space bring happiness to the new family living here now.
