Burdwan house, well, it was sort of dream house for people like me, who love to stay invisible, if I could have one magical wish to be granted for my own self it might have been invisibility at wish! Well, our Burdwan home granted that wish to a great limit the house was surrounded by our own property in two sides and on the other two sides there was not much movement in human sense. Our walls and kitchen section provided enough privacy.
The real treasure was the roof, it was the highest house in the surroundings and to add up the walls were really high, so I used to go up there with my walkman and books and pass hours of invisibility. The walls of that house were so thick that it almost totally blocked the noise outside, if we closed the window and doors and played something outside sound stayed outside. After living in Kolkata for years that now feels like a true bliss! Blocking the city cacophony!
