Oven(Sanjhan Chula)

(Sanjhan Chula)

Oven was very popular in villages from the ancient time.
It was the part of our rural life.
We can say that oven of the village was the part of our tradition and culture.
Women gathered there in evening to get their bread baked by this combined oven of the village.
Gathering was like a women’s kitty party.
They talk, enjoy and discusses the matters there.
Now this oven system in the villages is over.
We can say that it is the end of a cultural era.
social feelings are less than it was before fifty years ago.
Present system provides us single, truncated
& isolated families victimized by several types of frustrations.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
