The Thursday Post 27.12.12

India’s heritage is enviable. Its negligence towards its heritage is criminal.

If you travel around India, study it a bit you will regret that you don’t have any power to change its apathy towards the treasure trove that is scattered all over it. In form of buildings, languages or art forms.

There are so many heritage buildings that are fantastic example of art and really sturdy are allowed to get reduced to dust whereas millions of rupee is siphoned out of government fund to build a brand new building as office.

Now, those who are lucky enough to live in a old building know how sturdy and fantastic these buildings can be. They are real relief in today’s world if you maintain them properly.

They subdue the sound around, they are warm in winters, cool in summer and don’t drown in water during monsoon- a specialty of Kolkata.

And if you travel around India you will be miserable if you love old buildings like I do- forts, palaces… what not are getting ruined whereas they can be used as tourist attractions but who has that time!

If you want to become really miserable but don’t have much time visit Kolkata Museum and see the hundreds of years old artifacts being destroyed.

  1. I would love to travel around India, looking at all the cool architecture. You have so many different periods layered on top on one another. I heard Kolkata was a very peaceful old city, with some lovely architecture.
