My childhoood memories of our three storied big and independent bungalow is still vivid in my mind. All the time the doors would be opened and there would be people keep comingand going be it guests, servants, family friends. The door opened is a sign of invitation to the guests and the friends. Also my mom is very particular that the door should be opened during the evening when we do pooja so that the Goddess Lakshmi could enter our home. But now moving to the city in a three bedroom flat, the doors to the flat is always kept closed wither due to security issues or because of privacy matters. From what I read in the "Ideal Home" forum, people living in US not only shut the doors but windows too. Atleast we in India could keep our windows open for the Mother Nature's Fresh Air. What say, with the city growing in a mammoth phase, that too might change. This week's poll question is just a pulse of how far our life style has changed and how such small things has changed drastictically and changes our outlook to life.
