TRANSFER OF DE-GRADABLE RIGHTS

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. It’s fascinating to see donkey’s trading for power, where ideologies are completely at ease for change. The fundamentalist becomes secular (pseudo secular), the right wing begins to behave like descendent of left, while left aspire to become capitalist. The landlordism, feudalism which to my mind still prevails in our society (even metros), begins to behave like socialist. The bourgeoisie begins to think on social welfare, or street side hooligan begins to promote social right or capitalist beings to think on philanthropy.

This is an arrangement of five years, perhaps quarrel on petty issues are almost seen as routine for newer bargain. But amidst of all these, I am very impress by the convenience of transfer of ideology without slightest moral obligation. The staunch regional fundamentalist joins pre-independence party on so called secular guise & talk about aberration on religious group who themselves once condemn of while ago. The Indian politics is dynastic politics and inherited from kingdoms & nawabs, who believed in pre-independence party in disguise of secular to protect their privileges, while middle class Indians in politics remains divided without understanding of ideological conflict that pervades through internationalism.

Perhaps this is the reason that regional politicians arising form discontent for micro- cause are more pervious for convenient change. But we need to ask ourself something very fundamental that "is it that we live in society which is socially well organized but politically un- informed or unwilling to expand beyond their social territories?"....

ARCHITECTURE OF THE ENMESHED CULTURE

The recent trends of architecture demonstrates the pugnacious departure from disciplined modernism. The traditional notion of creativity is slowly replaced by innovation in technological inputs and tools that generate the forms rather than tools that aids the process of generating one. The sinuous forms, non-structured or non euclidean geometry are encapsulating minds and thoughts into unidirectional understanding of architecture as form making process. Having said that the argument of Aesthetic or delight is not only re-created but formally put in to the realm of hedonism. The architecture has never been so polemic at any stage of its evolution. The only reliable source of justification of  the emergence of such architecture is the way cultural ingredient that are induced universally, uniformly and unequivocally across the globe through in-numerous mediums amounting into forced reality.

The sterile or dogmatic ideas are slowly giving away to kinetic notion of architecture, the purity …

URBANISM ECOLOGY AND PLACE: Reading "City Riffs"

The recent publication of book titled " City Riffs" by Richard Plunz ( Columbia University, GSAPP) is based on urbanism discourse (dialogue) in relation to place and ecology. The preface by Kenneth Frampton argues the production of urban knowledge in neo-liberal economy results in aporetic question on limits and scope in the field of urban study. He brings about three important and critical discourses by Christopher Alexander on low rise, high density model, E.J Mishan work on "The Cost of Economic Growth" and Plunz work on "CIty Riffs" demonstrating the linear process of indictment of urban transformation towards maldistribution of resources.
The book brings the analogy of place and ecology, which needs in-depth understanding as both shares concept of place and space. His argument on place based centrality to urban discourse which perhaps has not been dissected theoretically enough as compare to environmental science. He argues further that how biological…
