90pc mud houses reconstructed with corrugated sheets: NGO — 1 Comment

  1. This has become a status symbol in many villages as people consider it an insult to live in old mud houses built decades ago. In this precious historical houses have been demolished and their places new houses with these tins have been raised.
    Though it is good to use the sheets for different reasons one of them being its capacity to protect houses from rain and seepage, our traditional architecture and design should not be done away with.
    I have seen people in my area even labourers to work day and night in order to make a tin chakeru bangla or full house. It is becoming a competition. In my small village no there is not a single house without tin. We are becoming a nation of tin???haha.
