“When you know that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing, when you see that money is flowing to those who deal not in goods but in favours, when you see that men get rich more easily by graft rather than by work, and your laws no longer protect you against them but protect them against you, you know that your society is doomed.”

Ayn Rand

Any city that has evolved over time without major cosmetic change and intervention MUST be left alone (read : preserved) with its own cultural ethos identity. And a TWIN city should be created within its arms stretch to deal with new migration .This urbanization can be characterized by modern ideals.

India must learn not to imitate or copy. We are a continuum of a culture and a civilization. We have never had “start’ , “stop” or “start”; we have wandered and wondered. Our culture is like a great vessel that takes in “all” and makes absolutely unheard of delicateness to cater to every need from violence to peace.

We do not create preserve and destroy. We just move on. No one understands us.

If you like the Chaos then you can see Order. Even the heavens smile and merrily leave us alone.
