The story sets in a small town in Andhra Pradesh. A family lived happily there. Ram with his wife Riya lived with their son Rohan. They had shifted from a village to town for employment, to earn money, better facilities and education for their son. Their parents lived in a village so Ram with his family visited frequently in village. His parents lived in their ancestor’s home.
Ram loved his parents a lot. He wanted them to live along with him in his rented house in the town but they never agreed. They were happy seeing Ram’s progress but never wanted to leave their ancestor’s home. They had a special attachment to it. They always said that Ram or any of their future generation’s kid will never get to know the feeling of living in that house. It was blessed and the memories they shared in that house were unforgettable. Ram understood the same but he thought nothing could be done to the progress of that Village. Every man must go to the town in order to have a better life.
Rohan was growing gradually. Though he belonged to a middle class family, his parents paid great attention to his studies because they wanted him to do something extraordinary. They believed in his potential. Since childhood, he was very creative. He had his own ways of doing things. He had a great imagination too.
He made paintings that he visualized, did arts and crafts by learning them from friends and wherever he could. He was good at writing too. He could always write what he felt like. His parents supported him in whatever activity he was put into. And the best thing was he did every work with dedication.
Rohan loved his grandparents a lot. He made beautiful cards for them to gift them on occasions specially grandparents day and visited their house in vacations. He was inspired by the lifestyle of his grandparents. He wanted to improve the condition Of the people living in that village. He wanted that the facilities that were provided and easily available to the citizens should be accessible to the villagers too so that people won’t have to settle in big cities and towns. He learnt in the environmental studies about the urbanization and it’s consequences mainly deforestation that is a very big concern and threat to ecology.
