Should concrete stair landing be anchored to building?

I have never been able to understand why a cloudy weather makes me feel nostalgic. One such cloudy day when I was all alone at home, walking up the staircase leading to my room, I started remembering the days when my world revolved around that newly built concrete staircase. It was the only way that led to 'my' room and this made those concrete steps so special to me. I remembered all the little things me and my staircase shared! I used to swing on her railing, jump down her steps in excitement, spend time counting her balusters, run up her steps to go to my room, and standing on her landing, when I could view my house from above, I used to feel on 'top of the world'! They were built years ago; they look old now. But even today while walking those steps, I remember the planning, the arrangements and the fun we had had while building them. Let me tell you what we did. So, here's something on how to build concrete stairs.
