When Nasim, the politician, built his house, he decided to invest everything in it. The money from land scam, his biggest achievement, was his source for marble tiles. The funds from construction and oil scam, he had meticulously committed, went towards other lavish amenities. The house looked humble and forlorn from the outside, Nasim thought. No one would suspect anything! He loved his house, which was the result of all his ‘hard work’, until the ruling party decided to place him under house arrest. Confined for 5 years to the walls of extravagance, he found himself detesting his house.
