Architecture – ‘TREASURE OF IDENTITY’

“Its our right to save and preserve our identity in all forms”

India is a large country with rich culture and traditions.With one of the finest example of artwork of Mughal Architecture-” TAJ MAHAL” .Built on the bond of love .It captures visitors from all over the world.It gave the country its identity on the map of world occupying the place in one of seven wonders of the World.Yet there are many truths which are hidden which needs to be unfolded.

To through some light, let me make you aware layer by layer.As on the one layer we see a lot of population who are getting modern each day.They get the best outfits for their outgoings. By wearing the fake mask, they keep their social accounts and photos to a large number of filters….

While going to the ground reports, we find that people when asked about their questions on how their homes be like and whom they like to hire…? their answers be like

…. I will get it on internet as there are much available there …….

and also some be like

... ummm…..the house we are living on rent, we will get our house on the same plans…

I can’t understand why..?

Let me give you a example to understand more clearly ,

“If you are a ‘LOIN’ and you are said to wear the outfit of ‘DONKEY.’..Will u wear it..?”

or

“If you are a boy and someone offers you a set of skirt and bikney…Will ypu accept it ..?”

The same case arises on our home tooo…. As we can’t live our life on the others identity similarly we can’t live in the other’s house..your house is your’s ,it is fit for your’s personality…We all have our own identity which is represented by our outfits…

Why their mindset are set so… ? either they don’t read books or they are much more stick to the serials like saas -bahu and so which is degrading the minds of people slowly and slowly.

Also ,this might be the reason that only a little population are reaching to the designers in our country .I think that there is a yet a large more distance to travel for our country to get the full freedom from this mindset.

Some might have a large questions in their minds that Architects are too expensive to hire ..!! Yes this is true we are expensive.But they don’t see that they are not spending but they are investing for their ownself in all aspects-MONEY , HEALTH , LIFESTYLE

  • MONEY as you save a lot in energy efficiency of building, a lot on faulty construction and also a building which is made well designed functionally,they can be sold on a good prices than any average building
  • HEALTH as you are going to build a healthy habits and this bring psychological and a physical well being too, as written by Napoleon Hill in his book’THINK AND GROW RICH’
  • LIFESTYLE you will easily achieve

So there is a need to clear it from ground.There should be more awareness programmes among people.They should be taught about its importance .Also, not only for Architecture but for all fields there should be courses for students, so that they can explore and find fields of their interest for their future and for this country .As the Taj Mahal is holding the identity, in same way our people should also have their IDENTITY.
