But the old streets and the old heritage sites are changing day by day. Every time I go there will be some changes. After the massive earthquake in 2015 has changed the whole face of those old streets. Most of the buildings are damaged. Some were fully damaged and some have major cracks. But still, the shops are opened in the major damaged buildings.
Most of the people have a perspective of making high concrete buildings. But are those building good in the streets like Ason? What will happen to our old streets? Am I the only one who has this in my head?
Not only the buildings but the temples are also been buried under the development. This building above is another example of heritage lost in the development. This is Paltan Chhen/ Paltan Ghar which was built before 1832 B.S. This building have been there more than 243 years old and no one cares about it. The building has been ignored by most of the people who come in this area, only a few people know about this and it’s importance.
Also our old house in one of the Chowks of Ason. This building is also lost in the making of a new high concrete building.
There are still so many things that have been lost in the development and most of the people have forgotten. The Bhajan Dabalis, Bhajan mandals, the old newari bhajans all are lost in development. If you go and see those Bhajans you will see only the old generations. If these continue these all will vanish within few decades. I Wish the places were like before
