My Home - 1
I live in a small house. It has two-bedrooms, one dining-cum-drawing room, one kitchen and one pantry besides a bathroom and toilet.
My home is situated on the Lawrence Road. It lies in J.K colony. Previously, it was an ordinary locality, but now it has turned into a posh area.
My parents share one bed-room and I have the other bed-room. We have no separate study room. Thus, I have to study in my room or in the drawing room. But, I think, my room is quite all right for my requirements, though it also contains a wardrobe in a part of it where the clothes .of all the three members of the family are put.
My house is made of brick, though marble houses are now quite common in this locality. It is an old one and needs frequent repairs. My father says that he will one day pull it down and build a new one in its place.
I, however, love my house and don’t want that it should ever be pulled down. I have, indeed, grown obsessed with it, so to say.
Although my house is made of brick it is well-plastered and has beautiful smooth floors and walls. The walls are whitewashed and the doors and windows are well-polished.
The house has a courtyard on either side. Behind our back court-yard, there is another house. On both sides also we have houses of neighbours. Thus, our house opens on one side only. On this side we have a high boundary wall which keeps us almost shut off from whatever may be happening in the street outside.
Since we have no car and have a scooter only, we have no parking problem. We park the scooter in the outer verandah and thus it remains protected against sun and shower.
We are very happy in this house. Thus, I can say that happiness depends upon the attitude of a family and not on the size of the house or other possessions that they have.
My Home -2
The saying ‘East or West, home is the best’ is true in many ways. Home offers affection and security. My home to me is the best place in the world, where I live with my mother, father, a brother and a sister.
I belong to a middle-class family. My home is a cozy little flat on the 1st floor in Dwarka. Our drawing-cum-dining room is tastefully decorated. It has a TV set, a sofa, a refrigerator and a dining table. The decoration pieces remind me of our visits to different pieces. There are two bedrooms.
One is used by my parents and the other is shared by three of us. Not only the room but the study-table is also shared by us.
Ours is a small and happy family, where every member has consideration for the needs and comforts of each other. We all share household work, too. Our mornings are usually busy as all are in a great hurry to complete their work. But either it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner time, we all have it together. At that moment we share all that we had enjoyed or suffered during the day.
We always keep our home clean and tidy. Everything is kept in its proper place. I like my home, very much.
