The half-open window has fallen off

On my first day in this neighborhood, I told you about a house with yellow walls and beautifully-carved blue-colored windows that one can’t help but notice. And that one of the windows remains half open.

On the second day, I learned that it was in fact a Gurdwara, Temple of the Sixth Kingdom, where Bibi KaulaN took the decisive step toward liberation.

Today in the afternoon, when the heavy rainfall stopped for a while, I went out for lunch. Walking down the street, my heart suddenly sank when I looked at the Gurdwara. The half-open window couldn’t handle the storm. Half of it has fallen off.
