Thank you all:

Zero bacteria water by treating with SILVER sheet
White roof to reflect the suns heat
Sun - gave us light, heat, warmth and energy to hundreds of plants in and around Sourabha.
Sky lights to light-up the house

Trees and Plants - Air-conditioned our house without using electricity, gave us fresh and cool air by filtering dust and pollutants throughout the year. Neem tree and several medicinal plants avoided visiting "Doctors" for years. Sheltered many birds, butterflies, insects and many more.

Fish, tortoise, snails, tadpoles... - Kept our water bodies filled with rainwater fresh and clean throughout the year and also protected the lotus to give us each day one flower.
