F ASCINATING B ITS
FAMILY COMPOUNDS Each family compound includes a Hindu temple and shrine for family devotionals. These are surprisingly large areas in the family plots really. The housing itself is usually built in special “blocks.” There will be a separate building for the kitchen block, a different one for the bedroom(s), a smaller structure for the sanitary facilities, another for a barn, still another for a sitting area and dining spot (these two are often combined). When members of the family marry, a separate bedroom block is built for the newlyweds. But the religious area is never impinged upon or made smaller for more buildings.
