This should've been the first picture of Sri Vilas that I posted, but like many things in my life, it didn't occur to me. The house isn't visible from the front gate, generally speaking, but after a couple of pre-Monsoon showers in the last few days the once flagging-in-the-intense-summer-heat wilderness is now staging a resurgent comeback.
On a second glance, it looks like the way to a haunted house, eh? Well, no it isn't haunted. And yes, people still live here.
