It is called the river home because my house is right on the bank of the river. Its the property and the river, nothing in-between. A perfect place to cleanse and unwind. The home has a mandir. Along with the flower garden, there is a kitchen garden and we grow seasonal vegetables. Indoor games like carom, ludo and cards are there. The place has a hammock and fishing rod for angling. The river and the sky has its own beauty. Looks spectacular in different seasons. A perfect retreat.
Welcome to ‘Meghbrishti bari’ our home away from home at Raichak a small town around 50 kms south of the City of Joy, Kolkata. This duplex came into our lives when we were looking for a quiet retreat in the lap of nature to unwind from the mundane daily life and its noisiness. The sprawling lush green lawn, abundant greenery, calm serene surrounding, proximity to the river Ganges, its cool breeze and a secure gated community of villas made it love at first sight.
