I was once told by my professor when discussing about research at post graduate level... its about what not to do than what to do.. he cited an example that imagine that Mies had to design building with climatic concern... wouldn't that be disaster," he could design most adorable & fragile architecture because he could afford to ignore so many things"...I am pretty confused about what is thesis research & what is life long.. endless experiment or research.

The first project had huge empirical data without slightes clue on what is to conserve & why to conserve... if that was clarified than half of the information would have been obscelete. The case study of policy as well assumes policy at face value rather than larger imagination of political will & aspiration of locale.

The second project had stronge case building & firm grounding. Its approach as cumulative upgradation was commendable, however it lacked magination at the level of manife…
The time is about to come for new convenient associations, for old betraying habit, for new convenient relation, for ideological disguise. Nowhere in the world one may find parallel example of political alignment of convenience than in India, perhaps that’s the ideological stem of democratic root.

The one was right while other was non-conformist. It builds excuses for not taking any action on crucial issues & finding excuses for new program. Well, the meeting on new structure on architecture course is very similar, not able to take any action on crucial issues while finding exuces for new program. I have a basic & fundamental question that what have we done to the existing course which is 4.5+.5, have we evolved sufficient evought to have find conflict which would demand for new things. I am neither for old or nor for new, because i believe that out of box is alway from within. The present course structure is conviniently followed by every single institution except KRVIA.. which has gone against the grain and build its creditibility on its common maximum program from bounded condition.
