The wind blows through here. Shortly after noon, the wind from the ocean in the south comes blowing through this area towards the desert in the north. This house is in the Kutch region of India. Its roof is firmly tied down with rope so that it does not blow away in the wind.

The grass roof and the earthen walls block the heat outside. The women draw designs on the outside walls. The inside of the house is also elaborately decorated.
