This is the introduction I wrote for my cousins assignment "History of Houses"

Man has always looked upto nature for answers. So was the case with housing also. The palatial buildings and the archetctural masterpieces we see today is nothing but a evolution of lame attempt made by man to imitate the harmless birds going back to their nests for resting. The vulnerability of primordial man was always a reason for his fear and a feeling of insecurity always haunted him. A house to him was a protection from wild animals and the ruthless nature out there. It was a symbol of security and safety for him. In short it was his home.
