Razani

We are not sure where the name for our home originated. On the feudal deeds (title deeds in Scotland) for the property back in 1954, it says "shall be constructed a bungalow or dwelling-house to be called "Razani" - so the property has always had this name.

From our research, "Razani" appears to be a small well, located deep in the Kandahar desert. The original occupant of our home, who had it built, was a Colonel Millar who served with the Indian Army and we can only presume that he named the property after this location. Certainly this would explain the colonial style porch and other unusual aspects of the buildings design.
