The beginning of new parliamentary session usually bring the unseasonal shower from all directions. It was expected that prior to monsoon session the retail/FDI/Food related regulation shall be strategically pushed into the parliament and announce the election during the month of January or February. But political adjustments moves much faster than the institutional adjustments and now it’s time the ruling associations are realizing the hard fact. The territorialized geography & ideology is to be negotiated with terms that perhaps was never reckon with. The administrative mismanagement & unconstitutional/unethical operational motives can not be undone. It has been a debate in public domain clearly stating that the  strategy “if you cant erase than efface” which has been the mantras to retain hegemony.

It is perhaps the weakness of our democratic psych to not to remember and be subservient to strategically announced pre-cautionary measure. How bizarre the imagination that compels the rightist thinking left way or leftist thinking right way. The democratic behaves in disguised autocrat.  The ruling hegemony is the most controversial paradigm in its constitutional frame and is able to sail through without question is an eye opener. It solely means that constitutional incorrectness has democratic means for institutional correctness.

The internal issues are given global understanding and global issues are networked for hegemonic destination. This is the democratic framework for the majority of us who are not willing to comprehend the democratic traits in democratic manner. It’s an extreme surprise to note that every issue that crops up is deeper than the predecessor. Is it the inability to sustain democratic virtues or is it the inability to produce able leadership or is it that political wisdom lays in marginal moving away from democratic framework? These are the issues that shall dominate the strategic thinking. The political affiliations are less ideological and more about convenience of institutional terrotorialization. As ideological necessities are deeper where institutions and constitutions are paramount but this is replaced by hegemonic aspiration than the central conditions that perhaps begin to oscillate for undesirable ends.

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 …


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…
