Bithoor and its buildings

When I was complaining about the lack of urban art in Dehradun, W told me," keep your eyes above street level'. and that was sound advice.
It is largely the ground floor facades that are papered/panelled/torn down. The upper storeys of old buildings are not considered for 'modernization' and retain a lot of their charm.
And that is also true of Bithoor, where it is notmodernization but grafitti that is defacing many lovely buildings.
but the upper stories still retain a dignified beauty.

and sometimes, it is not just the beauty of a building, but a hint of what it conceals that is so tantalizing.
