First visit -Akshardham Delhi (PART -1)

This year has a great start.. Especially for me.It was the 2nd of january and I and my sisters went to delhi. We went to many places there . We had been there for some work. But as being and explorer and a student of architecture first.. We all visited. Akshardham Temple there.. Let’s uncover the scene. –

To me is was the first visit there. As been living in the eastern state of India and been a son of a father who owns a private clinic. Its quiet difficult for us to arrange a trip or to go outside along with the family members. But this trip was the beautiful. And historical too.. (for me)

Journey- We started from Lucknow( UttarPradesh) and used train as a medium. This is the time of pandemic.. Therefore many precautions were taken and we also have to be so much attentive to keep ourselves safe. Having the responsibility of one own self and the two sisters is also a job of proud and strictness. There we reach at 3 am in the morning. We had been there sitting in the station beds whole night. It was a bittering cold that day.. And we used to wear our bagpack along with the two kambals for the good.. The journey of train was also comfortable.. And we have a good sleep.. There.. In the night around 1’O clock I started sleeping… Whatever.. Keeping my new phone safe.. As I purchased it few days before from my savings. Well whatever. After the whole day has gone. We planned a lot. But because of the natures call.. The whole plan got in the bin.. And we were than also enjoying. The weather and journey..

The platform was 17th we were on the last track.. And than when the sun appears to come above the horizon we see the clouds roaring and the lightening striking just above our head. Well whatever the day it was but than also we enjoyed.. We were travelling towards the metro the distance is merely a few mtrs away but for us in the rain it appears like it’s more than the whole journey from Lucknow to Delhi.. In between the way our shoes were filled with water and they were making a bubbling sound. Now we entered the metro firstly we crossed the road than we came back the whole road filled with water and the water was of the manholes. Yukk . it was so bad at that time but memorable too. Finally we got the metro station.. There we entered.. And we were appearing to the people like the that we took a bath along with the clothes.. Hahaha we were just like comic creatures. There. The whole metro station of Delhi. OMG.Its a big network.. I think. 7 floors down and 10 floors above..

I was just pretending how people work there how the whole construction took place and how the staff or the workers manage the whole so complicated set of trains. The trains come and go.. Just like shoo.. Shoo… Well to me the people there are quiet selfish.. Matlabi log. Being a person from UP this is the main thing I found is that here people are so much respectful to others .. As an old saying. “Lucknow ki tehheeb.. ” But there people don’t care what you are and who you are. They never think of you.. Just my own personal opinion do that take it too seriously. As an incident took place with us.. When our whole legs and shoes are filled with water there was no one who can even give us two polyethenes . How hard there heart is.. But finally one man on the thela.(mobile van) Helped us.. But he took money for that too.. Whatever but he helped us.. We are thankful for that person..

After completing our official work. We just planned to go Akshardhaam here the journey begins.. Now I don’t remember the names of the stations but if you need to know search on the Delhi metro site. It will surely help.. As it helped me…. After reaching the final destination we finally came outside it.. Now the weather has also improved a little bit. But the excitement has overcome our cold and tiredness

Now coming to the architects view of the temple.. And how it over

keep connected for the second part

This is my personal experience .. second part would be published soon.. thankyou for wait.
From google..bird’s view of this master piece❤

No need for title.!! Am I right..?

‘ जय हिंद ‘ वंदे मातरम्’

This is the 72nd Republic Day for India. As this day in 1950 our Constitution came into effect. The congress revealed the Purna Swaraj this day in 1930 . Dr BR Ambedkar was the architect of our Constitution. From 1950 onwards the Constitution came into effect. From that day only every year we celebrate this as a National festival. The flags are hosted in every institutions and every building. And our national anthem JANA GANA MAN is sung by people. This anthem was written by great poet -RABINDRA NATH TAGORE in 1911 . He also wrote the anthem of BANGLADESH. Mahatma Gandhi is our national father Or ‘Rashtra pita ‘.

Parade is being performed by the ARMY, NAVY and AIR FORCE . A huge gatherijng is done to see this beautiful parade and jhanki. A tribute is given and every year the PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA host the National Flag at Rahjpath.

A beautiful moment for us.I think every body should visit there once in a life to know and understand our culture and power as well..!!

NEARBY SITE VISIT-

Through being an architectural student I love exploring new places and trying to visit almost all the sites which influence me . It’s a process of learning new techniques and methods. It helps me to understand spaces more clearly and also makes us more clear about how the building takes place in this 3-D space. From foundation to the parapet it makes the process so tedious and quiet intresting . These are the some of the photos which I visited near my house.

*This is not my project…. This is a site which is near my home… Just exploring spaces*

‘Quality or Quantity’-masters do this way…!!

This post is my own observation and my own views towards the masters who served the world in their own ways. What I found and observed that there are many ways by which one can reach the top. This post is basically revolved around the idea of the services. The term” success here- means that how you gave your services to this world and how public enjoys your services.

google

By keeping my ideas and approach right I would try my best to clear this concept. Many masters who are well known in their fields might have understood this concept. But to reach at the master level ,the concept which leads to the success is common in all. The methods or strategies might be different.

Its just like-

“solving a trignometric equations of tenth class –

To prove LHS and RHS equal one can do the parts separately or can take the one side and make it equal to the other side.

by -Utkarsh Mishra

It depends on the mathematician which method he proceeds .Both the methods are correct. Same is in this case. Let me explain better.

Similarly to achieve the success at the public level and to gain mastery in a particular field. The masters adopt the method which suits to them .

The two ways by which one can have a bulk of fame money and recognition.

  • QUALITY
  • QUANTITY

Third is the most advanced and effective method which I found and analysed. I will put more empahsis on the third and will elaborate the methodology and strategies envolved in this method. I’m sure you will realise and understand the importance of the third one. I will give you the examples and ideas too.Please go through the end of the post.

QUALITY-This forms the basic of all success .But Alone Quality does not makes you a successful.In some cases its risky to give your 100% in this because of the boundations of time and other demands.Yet Quality the one of the keyfactors of achieving the success but its not alone that gives too.

  • But sometimes doing a good quality work does not only makes us successful in the creative fields where the success means the ‘peice of work which is loved by the audience’.
  • The Artist or the person who do the work does not knows which work would reach the larger audience or which song reaches the billion views on youtube or which project got the more recognition. Its too risky and to depend only on your quality work in this small life is like making the big digs for your ownself. You will get everything but it might consume your whole life. (its just my opinion don’t take it as a benchmark)
  • Second thing comes is also the luck factor but mostly the luck is the output of our thaughts and actions .So to be on the safe side qwe should maintain our quality weather we are in school ,college ,working as a Employee or whatever may be.As Quality is one of the keyfactor.

QUANTITY-Its also a strategy used by all and it builds our confidence and also adds to our portfolio a another weightage.

Doing a quantity of work allows us to open many gates for success.But doing only Quantity does not means that we give our services unriped or of low quality. It’s also found that doing a quantity of work within the certain time frame increases our productivity and also makes us more efficient .Our creativity boost and flourishes.It also trains our mind towards more problem solving abilities. But let me make more clear that how the quantity is not only tat makes us masters.

Its just like having a lot of crackers in Diwali and none of the crackers has a good sound and lightening . Our Diwali might get Dimmed .

But having some good crackers sound and crackling effect makes a long lasting impressions in our memories. We might remember it till next Diwali.. 🙂

by-UTKARSH MISHRA

Now coming to end of my article and also in order to give the fine strategies let me discuss the THIRD one which I Gave the Name –‘QUATITY’

As the name suggest it says all that its the product of both quantity and quality .

"Quality+Quantity= QUATITY"

To become the master we need understand how our mind works and how to work .This path is hard yet the safest. One needs to stick and also dedicated towards the work .As to achieve success there is no shortcut and to be successfull it takes a lot time and efforts. Yet, if we follow this method I assure that we can be successfull. Our success than will have some meaning and carries weightage. It will not vanish easily and no one can make you fall ,only if you are honest towards the work.

Let me share a example so that you can easily understand and relate my work.

Let me give you the three S’s-

  • Saves time
  • Safest side
  • Success is assured.

Taking examples of Rabindra Nath Tagore ,Eminem ,Jaha Hadid-these are the masters who are till date remembered and will be remembered for all the ages .First one is the poet(First Indian who recieved the Noble Prize and also who wrote National Anthem for two nation -INDIA AND BANGLADESH , second is a Rapper(known as Rap God ) ,third is a Female Architect (she is remembered for her Iconic works in the field of Architecture)

Their method of working is much more and they are all masters in their fields.The basic factor that seperates them among the croud is that their work is more advanced.They all are dedicated towards their work. They also do a QUANTITY of work along with QUALITY forms the basis of their works. Rabindra Nath Tagore started writing from the very young age and keeps on polishing his skills. Which Ultimately improves his quality. Eminem Releases his album but only of the songs got so much publicity and recognition. Jaha Hadid did the same .

There should be a balance between the quantity and quality. The facts is to keep working both on quantity and quality. One of your work would be a stardom. This converts a Man to a Master.

thankyou for giving your precious time and please give your opinions and views only because of your time and opinions I’m consistense of my work..:)

An Architect and a Civil Engineer

“Civil engineers acts like Words but Architects play the role of the poets”

by -Utkarsh Mishra
so to have a beautiful poem ,words have to be arranged meaningfully and logically binded with the chain of creativity...

The most common problem people face nowadays is that they don’t understand who are Civil Engineers and who are Architects ..? May be the reason that they are less aware or our country is still lagging behind in the field of Architecture .Many people get confused between the two. Its like a curse for any person who belongs to a specific field and people call him or her by the other proffession ,its more like a heartbreak.

While on one hand Architecture is totally depend on feelings and philosophical concept, while The Civil Engineering is fully based on the structural and safety of human beings. Both are required and are equally important for the human beings. Because human beings need the both physical and emotional balance to live a live beautifully and meaningfully

As I’m an Architect ,therefore I will try to make your mind clear about what Civil Engineer’s don’t do. In this way you can easily understand the relationship and the wide difference between the two.

1-Architects are masters for making plans. They do the same thing for five years of their college life and the whole life.(plans means the architecture drawing floor plans and all.

2-We know about the physchology of human behavior and work in that way. We play with the spaces by adding the feelings. As JAHA HADID mam said that ‘the buildings rose our senses and they enhance our feelings’ .At some places we feel excited and enthusiastic but at some places we feel bored and sad. All is the play of the magic of Architecture and feelings.

3- An Architect guides all the functional aspects of abuilding and makes a person to move on a desired path.One of the major reasons why some malls and monuments attract the visitors again and again.It’s the magic of the Architecture.In this way the people got some time to live with themselves and they find peace from their busy lives.

4-‘An Architecture is a form of art and Not every body is an Artist’ .An Architect adds more value to our lives by adding the more and more meaning and a type of lifestyle. as it is said –

‘We shape buildings and than buildings shapes us’

5- Architecture is a very broad field and a lot of scope .But one must have that much of courage to withstand all the obstacles and live a very busy life. Many think that drawing the lines on a peice of paper is a very easy task. Yes it is but to give a meaningful drawings their is a lot of thaught process that undergoes .We have to do a lot of casestudies site visits and all the work .Its more like a proffession of a doctor.

I will say that -‘Doctors are the second face of God but an Architect enlightens us like God by the atmosphere.’

By -Utkarsh Mishra

6-” An art is an imagination and imagination has no limits so the Architecture” .But when it comes to the Civil Engineering there is a set of rules As Engineering is based on the concepts of Physics and there are the rules and laws which needs to be followed .

7-When seen on the wide scale its only because of the Architecture that our cultures and traditions are being preserved As I heard somewhere that “to destroy the culture of any country destroy all its Art and Architecture” .So now you can understand that how we are preserving our culture and also to make our new generation we conserve for future.Let me explain about this let me give you a example–>

As all the Muslims Go for Hajj to Madinah once in their lifetime and at a small scale they go to Masjids,Similarly All Hindu Go to the old Ghats and Temples . In future they would prefer to go to Ayodhya (Ram Janm Bhoomi where the RAM [Hindu God]Temple is now begin to construct under the Yogi's Raj) By the way- 'Bhagvaan ek roop anek'(God is one but the faces are different).But than also because of religious beliefs and culture Architecture preserves all. Our future generations will only see what we built today they will understand the meaning and their past only by these Architectural works.

Well that’s enough that now you are able to make a difference between the two, but lets give a focus on the Civil Engineers also they are masters in the structural framework and all about the safety of the persons living inside any structure .Both Architects and Civil Engineers are equally important for any good project .We both work silmultaneously on a projects and it requires a lot of team work and efforts to set a masterpeice for the future that is built in present .We are the two faces of a coin.

selfhelp for success

Ask for Help.. it truely helps….

Asking for help is one of the best strategy used by the wise men .Seeking advice and asking for help, it really helps. This life is short and we have a little time to achieve goals’. One has to adopt the habit of asking help in this competetive world. This idea would be more clear, when you will stick to my words till the end of this blog.

As according to time, we adapt ourselves according to our enviornment .(rule of the science ‘Survival of the Fittest‘) .The one who is more adaptive and advanced survives. Similarly we have to modify ourselves according to time and conditions. It is well said that-

jamaane k saath chalna chahiye…”

So ,according to above concept and the theme if this post-

hum akele hi sab kr lenge”

…. fails .This concept is good for a short span or small victory but to achieve more its not worthy to do all things alone.

To achieve the public victory( refer to book- The 7 Habits of Effective people by Coveys Stephan)you have to rely on others for your need. This is more practical concept and proved too…(I am not encouraging to be selfish, be clear to what I say and find the boundry of my words).This depends on the law of ‘GIVE AND TAKE‘. If you will help others than only others will help you .Simple,follow this rule and keep moving on.

The whole world is now flying on the wings of modernisation and technology. We have abundance of money and all the materialistic things that we gather for our comfort. But what we lack is the time -‘God father of everything on this planet’. We have so little of this for our ownself.

Not going to deep and trying to be specific and focussed .Let me explain the gifts when we ask for help.

1-TIME–Time is the one of the best asset that we have .Its profit depends on how we invest it…?In every proffessional field he proffessionals have a good workload

TIME<<WORK

Thus, to enhance our efficiency and to and to do a large work within a given time frame. It does not shows that we are weak but it gives them the importance that they are being recognised and they are capable of doing something for others.

2-RELATIONSHIPS- In all this process we get engaged with others. And its natural when we ask for help than there is some type of communication .No matter what it be but it builds the relationship with the other person. It gives you two profits

  • your work is being completed
  • you get one more friend in your life

3-VISION-whenever we ask for help than there are two probabilities

  • the other will help
  • or not help

When they select the first than the two minds come into play and and the work would be far better and we will get a broad vision for ourself.

(If they help than they will surely give there best services to you,if they don’t than don’t mind, might be they don’t know how to do the work.? or they might facing there own work or problems. Better ask other and save your time.)

4- PERSPECTIVE -Manytimes

‘ our 6 is 9 for others ‘

What we see might be different for the other. At the same time we both are correct in our own ways. Here we get one mire gift from asking for help. As this develops our perspective for a long term. Sometimes the situations are like that we think we are doing right but reality is that we are

‘kuyein ka medhak’

(means the ‘ frog of the well’ or ‘the world is limited only to that small well in which the frog lives’)

thus our all vivek( from hindi meaning wisdom or mind) got bhrashta( from hindi meaning destroyed or lost) ,we put ourselves to problems . thus when we ask for help ,we get possibilities of correcting ourselves .A step towards success.

5- BOOST MENTAL HEALTH -This we all relate more clearly .Many a times we got stuck in our work but somehow we are not able to do it or complete it. We got frustated so easily and our efficiency comes down. In a parallel world we are sowing the seeds of anxiety ,pressure, tension and stress in our mind. Biggest enemy for all success.

For a long term it leads to Craving( a state of unbalance between the mind and body)according to Buddhist and Sadhus( refer to book -The Attention revolution- Unlocking the Power of the Focussed Mind by B.ALAN WALACE).The strategy is simple .The life is simple. So ask for help…. you will not become small or weak but you will become more wise and effecient for a along term . No need to hesitate ,ask it from anyone who is near you.

Here also we get two profits

  • work is done
  • reduced stress and worry
  • money is saved as there is no need to give money to the doctors in future

Yet there are many more benefits as asking for help also cultivate the communication skills and your personality is developed. You will achieve success in both of your personal as well as proffessional life . And soon you will work more efficiently in all the areas of your life.

Thankyou for giving your precious time … :)please do like and share your ideas so that I can connect with you more easily and express my views more openly .

Failed ….Modern Architecture

MINIMALISM…LESS IS MORE…..FORM FOLLOWS FUNCTION…..INNOVATIONS ……MODERN TECHNIQUES……..

If you are associated with architecture than you must be familier with these phrases sometimes or even more often.The whole World is now covered with the so called ‘modern architecture‘. The innovative techniques advancements are done on the daily basis in the field of architecture.

But according to me the true meaning of Architecture lies in the way how we follow our own cultures and traditions.It does not depend on what we perform but how we perform our daily activities. The way how one lives their life and performs their activities by keeping their values and traditions as a North Pole.

Modern Architecture fits in all aspect of a good and civilised society but it cuts the people from their roots.(roots here means of one’s own identity , their culture ,tradition and their link to ancesters)The architecture moulds the human being.They live according to the way their spaces are organised and planned which ultimately decides what they do and how they do…?

It destroyed the real identity of the region and scripted the life of people in the same format.This is boring and has negative impacts for the long term.As architecture is all about the life and its relation with the human being.How one celebrates the built form.?Its a whole journey which includes the study of history and the adaptations along with time to live a more easy and efficient lifestyle.But the –

traditions and culture should always be the guiding light for the Architects

all over the world.More we focus on our roots more we would be able to relate and connect to our ancestors.Also it would help us in getting the real meaning and purpose of life.

I’m not against the modern architecture besides I do like the principles and philosophy of it.But in the most important aspect like the preservation of identity it failed .This is the reason why we see the whole world is wearing the same mask of Glass, Steel and Concrete.We can’t relate any country by just seeing its building individually.

For example when we talk about the Greek and Roman than an image would flash in our minds of the orders of their columns like Doric ,Ionic and Corinthian. Similarly then we talk about any country the image got created in our minds.As a result of this the countries lost their uniqueness.

The Falling Water

By going through the one of the finest architect from the world and his master piece THE FALLING WATER( one of the heritage sites of the world being preserved since 1957) designed by Frank Lolyd Wright.The building opposes the modern architecture in the use of materials .This building is a retreat house itself .By the use of rocks and wood it opposes a modern architecture in a constructive way.

Now a days many architects lost their taste of using the natural materials or they don’t have developed it. The’ truth is that the great architects have made the best use of local materials and also they tried to find the best outfit for their projects ‘(means the materials for their projects).Which ultimately became their identity and their signature styles.

Thus there is a need to change the way we build. In order to preserve the identity and uniqueness of the people.If not taken care than the whole world will look similar.Their would be no distinction between the geographical areas on the basis of their traditions culture and values,which I personally think is important for the coming generations.

thankyou for giving your precious time for reading my views.. 🙂

A guide to Architects… “MARS” OR “SLUMS”

We are going to have settlement on‘Mars’. A large area of our Earth is occupied by the humans.We are digging forests,and touching the sky.Urbanisation , Infrastructure and modernisation has spreaded their wings all around.

One of the major reason may be the population but I do think that the greed of human had contributed to this a lot. Thus it created a conflict between human and animals, moreover it created an imbalance at a global scale, As this year ,we saw an example of ‘Tiddi’ (https://www.livehindustan.com/tags/tiddi-attack )attacks in the some parts of Pakistan as well as in and western India.It destroyed the a large amount of crops as a result .

In the Country like India, where there a large number of people are below poverty line, they even don’t have roofs to keep their head beneath. Yes, I’m talking about the people in slums.. irony is here...

Musk is going to have a Human settlement on Mars, yet we are still lagging here.

I think that growing the quantity does not means when it comes to quality. Thus, If we want a country to reach heights. Than we must improve the quality of all men. As said by the Dr.B.R Ambedkar https://shodhganga.inflibnet.ac.in/bitstream/10603/149691/8/08_chapter_03.pdf we keep on working towards in this aspect than we can build a more developed and planned areas for them to have a Good and Effective life.They also can act as an Asset for any Country’s growth ,if guided properly.

Moreover ,if we (Architects) focus on the upliftment of life of such people, than we can achieve a lot in the humanity. As we are the God of settlements,than we can do a small share in this too…by having the more planned and well setteld areas for them so that they can also do their share in the groth of our country.

Growth is important as it’s a symbolism of life. Similarly to have a more balanced life on this earth. We need to adopt more and more Economical and Efficient methodoly for the buildings .Their is a more need to create more adaptible and flexible Architecture but without harming the nature at it only leads the humanity to problems. Also more vernacular and substainable Architecture should be adopted. Without harming the harmony of this ecosystem…!

Architecture – ‘TREASURE OF IDENTITY’

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.
