According to fengshui,the  Southeast corner(agneyam mula  in telugu) in the house is considered as wealth and goodluck corner.Dont keep this corner dark without light.Atleast in the nights maintain a bulb in the south east corner. Keep 2 idols of roaring lions,in the two sides of main gate.Or atleast idols of cement can be carved on the gate.Last but not the least,paste 2 posters of roaring lions ,coz according to fengshui ,these roaring lions  protect the wealth ,and dont allow the evil forces to enter the house.Place the picture of 9 running horses ,in the south block of the house,th…
