Praveen Agarwal, who has been running a small farmhouse in the outskirts of Mumbai for the last seven years, has decided to put up lights in the attic for his family for the festive season.
The owner of the Praveena House, who does not want to be named for security reasons, said that he has been receiving complaints from neighbours that the lights in their homes have become too bright.
He said that the current house is not much of a farmhouse, with its large, two-storey compound and a kitchen.
The lights have been installed in the basement.
“The house has two-roomed rooms, but the lights are dimming,” he said.
“We have decided to install a few light fixtures in the house to make it more attractive for the neighbours.”
Mr Agarwals son Rishabh Agarwarwal, 28, and son Akshay Agarwas, 21, are also members of the farmhouse community.
Mr Agarws son, Rishak, also lives in the adjoining compound.
Mr Agarywal said that his neighbours have complained about the lights and said that they would not be able to sleep if they knew about the problem.
“I am just going to install the lights for the Christmas season,” he added.
“If it rains and the house is damp, I will be able sleep in the same room, but if it is dry, I am worried about the noise from the lights.”
The AgarWals, who also run a small business in the area, said they would also install a number of new lighting fixtures for the house.
