 “It took 7-8 years to build this house. It has 5 rooms. We had constructed a proper, cemented house. Then came this landslide. Cracks appeared in the rooms They were smaller at the beginning, then they grew larger and gradually spread to all five rooms. We do not stay here now because we thought someday the whole structure might collapse on us. That’s why for the last 10-15 days we are staying in someone else’s house. Earlier we had five rooms. Now the whole family has to stay in a single room in someone else’s place.”
