In Rajsthan, I have seen some wonderful palace like  buildings. Even in rural areas, the doors will attract you. The housing and the variety in it is a matter of a deep knowledge base.

But sometimes, I do remember the moment when I entered a house in one of the villages in Barmer district.

There was hardly anything in the house. The wall had so many holes that winter would be very severe in this room.

Was it an "add on" room for a family - I wanted to know.
No, it was not.
This was the only room that the family had.
I wonder whether they have Rs. 26/- per person that out esteemed Planning Commission of India feels sufficient for a family.
