Typical house in Karadi

This house belongs to Bhartimasi, our aunt. She is not married and lives here alone. Along time ago, our Bha (grandmother) grew up in this house but she now lives in Coventry.

    Hey all you smith patels – your photos are fantastic and if you could fit a pair of those shutters under your arm on your way back, for those without blinds in Moseley and are dazzled by the Birmingham sunrises that would be an act of charity.
    But – too, hope you are all safe and well, news too shocking and scary . Looks the opposite in your beautiful village.
    Take care – all best Jo x
