We are just four persons in the family. I have one sister only. My parents believe in having a very small family. My house is built of bricks iron, tiles and marbles. It has got all the modern amenities of life. Hull House is a permanent fixture on campus, although some exhibits within Hull House are temporary. Everyone has their own choice on what type of house they feel comfortable to live in, so do I.
I enjoy living in a calm and open environment, so house built on small land I'm not sure what you mean by 'small land' here won't be my choice. I want a large open space surrounded by compound, where I can stroll, especially when I feel bored on at my job. A visit to any of the Washington, D. So, being the youngest member, I enjoy love and affection of all.
My father is an advocate. My mother is a teacher. She works in the Primary School in our village. My sister is a student. My grand-mother and grand-father love my parents.
I am their favourite grand son. We live in a thatched house. The house indicates the simplicity of our family. It has mud walls. There are four rooms excluding the drawing room and the kitchen. My parents share the room adjoining the kitchen. My grand-mother and grand-father share the room near the drawing room. Another room is used as the store room. There is a spacious courtyard. We have also a cowshed with two cows and a little calf.
I respect my parents and old grand-parents. I always obey their commands. My mother and grand-mother do not like to part with me for a moment. When I go to school, my grand-mother accompanies me up to the school. She waits for me at the school gate during the last period.
My mother cooks food for us. As she is a teacher, she prepares food in the morning and preserves it properly for lunch. My sister who stays in the college hostel often comes and helps my mother in her work. I sometimes play interesting jokes with my grand-father and grand-mother. So, it is highly unlikely that anything could go wrong in our neighborhood, because someone is always watching. Incidences of crime are nonexistent.
If you want anything, you just ask your neighbor. If there are wrangles between families, they are solved at a community level. My home is inclusive of my neighborhood, my community, the surroundings and everything in it. These are the things that make life worthwhile and memorable. During the day, the place is buzzing with activities: men in suits going to work, women taking their kids to school or walking their pets or going for morning jogs and teenagers in groups strolling to their respective institutions to study.
The activities are not much different from the city. However, in the suburbs there is always calmness, people are never in a hurry, always greeting each other and sometimes standing together to ponder about the affairs of the community. The evenings are also very quiet and peaceful, except for a few incidences of mothers shouting at their kids to stop misbehaving or sharp cries of babies. But, these incidences do not go unnoticed and the next day the neighbors may seek to know if everything was fine.
Our community is that close. The evenings are well lit with street lights and security lights from houses. There are also neighborhood watches, where groups of our courageous men take turns to watch over the community, especially if there was an incident that threatened our security.
There are also police patrols once in a while. Not even one single house is gated. In balcony there are a number of flower plants grown in big earthen pots. They include roses, jasmine, pagoda tree, chameli, tulsi, money plant, etc. We have 5 fans, air pressure fan and an air cooler. All these things make my house a beautiful and very nice place to live in. My home is the most important place in my life. I feel fully safe and secure in my home.
It is near the living room.
She waits for me at the school gate during the last period. Schools have been built, we have a college around the corner, there is a mall, coffee shops- in short, we have everything here and we do not need to run to the city to get anything. But no matter how much they look different, they all have the same definition, the place where you feel safe, comfortable and settled. My mother and grand-mother do not like to part with me for a moment. The living room, which is the room that I really like in my house, has two big sofas and a very nice massage chair.
We also have a sofa set, a refrigerator, a washing machine, a computer. I always obey their commands. When I look back on it I had so much inspiration around me, influencing my constant desire to pleasure those in need. But no matter how much they look different, they all have the same definition, the place where you feel safe, comfortable and settled. A place that I still consider a heaven within a heaven, even though I and my two sisters have already moved out. Our neighborhood has really changed, since we first set foot here.
The evenings are well lit with street lights and security lights from houses. The open terrace is in front of the garden. To making any choice, there are probably an equal number of pros and cons. We are living in this house since
