There’s this semi-fraud-acquaintance who took a lot of assistance from my Dad in getting stone and design related work for his big house project. I am compelled to call it house coz it’s hard to call it bungalow.
One of the features of this man’s project is the numerous kinds of stone and surface material he has used to garnish his house with, both inside and outside.
Needless to say, I was appalled at the way it all felt when I got a chance to visit this site once, more than a year back. The work’s still going on I hear.
Taj Mahal is primarily a one stone work.
Kailash Temple, they say, is not just one stone, it is one-rock work. Incredible, isn’t it.
Now, for the sake of funny arguments, a professional like an architect or an interior designer or a status-symbol-maker may say but these are public monuments, not houses for living. So let me ask another question.
Would you want a house that looks as gorgeous as a monument or a house that looks like a hodge-podge of materials?
Funny argumenter may even say, “But monuments require more money and space to make.” Really? Is that so?
The practitioners and house-makers of today’s age seem to earn a lot from the use of materials instead of the use of imagination. Bitter and easier said and true wherever I see.
