We acquired the land called ‘Raja Farm’ back in the 80’s. Situated a few kilometres outside the city then, it offered a wonderful haven in the midst of a quiet silver oak plantation. It was easy to fall in love with the place and we have lived there for many years now. Sons, daughters, nieces and nephews were born. They enjoyed their romp in the open spaces on the farm amidst dewed mornings and orange dusks. Birthdays, weddings and other celebrations that bear the family’s memories lie embedded there like emeralds within lush green fields under majestic rain trees. It is a magical place.
