I am going to write about those huts in which I lived and have felt with my senses.
We used to eat, sleep and play in that leafy hut from morning till evening.
Furthermore, when my brother, sister grew older and I still could not give up my urge of playing house-house game, I made friends from my neighborhood and every evening we used to go to barren land nearby our house locality on which few cement rings were lying which was used to make wells.
So true, our nature is the best example of unity in diversity.
The most striking and logical use was of transparent glass I saw there.It was smartly inserted in place of thikiris with the column support of wood log. Thikri roofing are done on wooden grid structure, wood logs are placed in vertical and horizontal alignment and form column and rows.
Now coming to Orissa- a state I was born in, in this place bamboo is used as foundation for the skeleton structure of huts and they are sandwiched by mud and are left until they solidify, here also huts are plated by cow dung. Surface decorations are done by gheru & rice paste in traditional motif and designs.
