Jo and Kim of desire to inspire I want to say 3 things.
I envy your such a beautiful long distance global relationship.
I think magic of inspiring work from you really works on us.

These are carved wooden jharokhas (windows).
In past you could see these jharokhas in lot of Indian homes, in villages, in palaces, everywhere. Now they are mostly used inside the house as wooden frame or just as decor pieces.
