Our house was located on Peshawar Road. At the front, close to the main road were three majestic Eucalyptus trees, the scent of their leaves awakened the passers by who looked curiously at them.Behind the trees was a fence built with bricks, it was a tottering one , ready to collapse any moment. The herd of buffaloes obliged us by leaning on it. The fence came crashing down which made extra work for the gardener and the servant.
The house was a large one, it had to be, to accommodate fourteen living souls, Mom, Dad, and the kids.
In all there were twelve rooms, four larger, eight smaller with attached bathrooms.

Kitchen was a separate building where my mom cooked and the two servants, prepared the vegetables and washed the dishes.
