The houses had lower levels and upper levels. The lower levels were used as animal sheds and the upper levels had kitchens, living rooms, granaries etc.
Present Day Life in Hunderman:
No!, Hunderman was not a government funded museum where the valuable items bearing historical importance were stored and displayed under lock and key. It was Ansari's museum, where he tried to preserve everything with the little money that he could afford. Most of the valuable items were displayed openly with hand written notes of 'do not touch'.
He narrated his unfortunate situation and we could feel his pain. With no government aid, it was difficult for him to preserve and protect the items. There have been visitors who also stole guns from this place. Since, he was alone he could not protect the items with such historical value.
We walked from house to house soaking in the vibes of the bygone era. Everything stood frozen in time as if it was just yesterday when this little village was bustling with activities, people, voices and emotions. One lone apricot tree stoodloaded with a treasure of apricots but no one to plunder. We plucked a few and savoured the delicious fruits.
