Having Kitchen in the North-East corner of your home?
If you answered that “YES”, then you are not alone.
There are many instances where a kitchen is, wrongly or carelessly, placed in North-East corner of a home rather than South-East.
Whatever be the reason of placing kitchen in North-East corner, the fact that North-East kitchen is inauspicious remains intact.
