Let me tell you an interesting fact about my home town Ranaghat!
It is called so,coz of the infamous dacoit Rana,he used to live there in a Kali temple!
You see those square box like designs on the roof,the right side of the pic!When the dacoits used to come. . .
then all the men of the house used to go to the roof top with their guns!
Each of those squares have a slanting hole!They would put the barrel of the gun through that and position themselves!
Then the head of the house would shout & negotiate with the sardar!
If the deal . .
was done, then that much of jewelley would be thrown from the top, else there would be a shoot out, till the dacoits would be chased away!!
Plenty of such incidences & stories that we have heard while growing up!
Dacoits, the mughals, the brits. .no one could change a thing!
Then after independence, under the land reform act, all was taken away by the GOI!😅
Now all we have is the house!
So we as a huge family, do every thing to preserve it!😊
