This is the house that Aaisaheb grew up in. She belonged to the Deo family and this wada belonged to the Deos, who by the way are not Deshashta Brahmins as the name suggests, but Karhades, like the Jatars.
Aaisaheb is the last known female ancestor of the Jatars and thus can be considered the mother of all Jatars! The matriarch of the Jatar brood.
This wada has long been torn down. She did not belong to a rich family, but definitely a cultured one.
These photographs were sent to me by the wife of a cousin of mine from the Deo family, a cousin three or four times removed. His great-grandfather was my grandfather’s first cousin – Nita.
