    Indian state where a plane on the roof is normal

    Beautiful Houses
    Of Punjab
    It Could have been
    You and Me

    Modern
    Yet Traditional

    Curvy
    Yet Sturdy

    These lovely
    Pieces of Art
    Could have been
    Our Family's Start

    No Need for
    Airplane as
    Watertank

    You have
    Real-life airplane
    Trips with
    Your Beloved

    Wonderful vicinity
    Where one can
    Celebrate and Enjoy
    All Holidays of India
    All Year Round

    And return to
    USA in Time for
    Kids to Go to
    School

    Beautiful Houses
    Of Punjab
    It Could have been
    You and Me

    We could have saved
    Enough Money
    And lovingly built
    Same architecture
    House in USA

    In USA

    And life off the
    Fat of the Land

    Fat of the Land

    Alas, you chose

    Darkness
    Emptiness

    One Roti
    Is Now Broken
    Into Two

    :hello:super sonnet of reality indeed. Houses built in $ money by children are edifices of course in America style. but who lives there. it is all built in outskirts of the city and many such places lacks infrastructure. My old pals - husband and wife - staying in such a house,while their sons and daughters are settled elsewhere in a different geography. For company they have a Labrador and couple of Pomeranians. They have money and time but no energy to maintain themselves and the palatial house. Thanks and regards. God Bless Us All.

    Thank you so much.

    Yes, what people aspire to be, or what they are proud to achieve, they sculpt the house water tank accordingly.

    Statue of Liberty means dreams of coming to USA.

    Awww, thank you so much.

    I wish there is way for married children to keep in constant touch with parents while still earning to support family.

    And hopefully infrastructure will come to the quiet, blissful outskirts to help those living there.
