How unfortunate this country is overpopulation at it’s peak, drenched in poverty, among the hottest countries in the world, lack of natural resources, 900 million practice open defecation…. 1400 million living in a medium sized sh**hole country

Instead of concrete houses they should adopt traditional methods of building house using wood like Himachal style houses with slate rocks on top, or mixture of Wood and Stone like Southern India style traditional house with wood and stones, or with mud like Ladakhi style houses, for the most durable use the stones to build houses like how temples are build when summer it will be cool and in winter it will keep you warm.
