A visit to the house of Alice Boner

By Vivek Nath Mishra
The building seems one of the foremost constructions at Assi Ghat, on the river bank. It is just next to the Harmony bookshop – a tiny, charming bookshop that attracts every passer-by like a flower attracts a bumblebee. It’s fairly easy to notice the bookshop as one goes down the street to the river but the house of Alice Boner is almost invisible. One passes it as one passes a beautiful roadside flower surrounded by the long grass.
