The Mud House MS/2018/03

on




There once stood a mud house inside a dry bamboo – lined fence. The house was bipartitioned into what could be called room and kitchen. The room had an immovable mud bed which had neither known the embrace of a foam nor the coverage of a bed sheet. Instead, the local mat was everything to the mud bed; foam, bed sheet, pillow and all. The house was enough to shelter a widow, her three children and their meagre household wares. Although the house was windowless and had only one door,its peculiar thatched roof structure made it airy. Inside its only room,a big earthen pot was kept in one of the free corners. Without ever failing, the pot provided a moderately cold drinking water to the members of the household and visitors alike. Aesthetically, the mud house was unique, its colour was naturally dim brown. The floor glittered from its skillful smoothening with a special pebble , while the wall showed the artistic lines of the white chalk. All these gave the mud house a good surface finishing. It seemed to have a security loophole due to its peculiar fence type. The entrance to the mud house was a flat basket which offered more privacy than security. However, the human security structure over – rode the physical and hence, guaranteed the safety of lives and property within and outside the mud house. Today, mud houses appear obsolete, lowly and insignificant before the sophistication and challenges of the present day. But they are still relevant for the history they tell of us, and the dust gospel they preach to us.  Mud houses belong to us and our forefathers. If we are losing them, we must hold firm to the truth and simplicity of life they symbolize.

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a
    blog article or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!
