  • My parents bought this place and a house in it long
    back in a small town.
    The house was renovated a little. It is surrounded
    by a lot of trees. Just entering the gate and looking at
    the house from a distance, we feel that we have entered
    a different world. My parents believe that it is a special
    place and it is indeed a special place.
    There is a small house adjacent to their and it has been
    let out to people over the years. All those
    who lived in that house have done well in life.
    The family who live there just love the place, and they too
    are doing well.
    Houses are a silent witness to all that is happening within
    its four walls. A happy household makes so much difference
    to the home they live in.
    Last year we had been to Ahmedabad and I had the opportunity
    of spending a whole day in Sabarmati Ashram.
    It is a special place. Then , we were in Sri Aurobindo
    Nivas in Vadodara. We walked in through the gates and
    we felt that we had entered a world of peace and quiet.
    In our childhood, we used to spend two months of our
    summer vacation in our maternal grandparents’ home.
    It was a special place indeed and there are
    precious memories of those days.
    Is a place special In itself or is it because of the people who
    live there or do our memories make them special ?
