WHAT IS REALLY INSIDE A CARROT?

Hi everyone, I've found myself somewhere between wanting to sleep that extra 5 minutes but not being able to and researching about ideas I would never see myself stepping upon. The field of Architecture has really broadened my entire perspective,opinions and concepts of almost every object, situation,event and even the people I'm surrounded by. This semester I'm doing a very intensive study on organic networks. What are networks though? Network is any such passage or source providing either connectivity,food,stability pressure,contraction,expansion.Narrowing upon a carrot I noticed the following.  Carrot (Under the microscope)- There are  micro-organisms in the rhizosphere which release Auxin- a very important phytohormone and light which regulate developmental processes including stem elongation,cell elongation,flowering ,flower development,fruit and leaf senescence. Protons...

Are you in love with the idea of being loved?

She sat across me, both of us breathing the same air under the same sky and I had so much to tell her but I was speechless. I somehow felt that this was the most magical and serendipitous moment I've ever felt before and there I saw a girl with teary eyes tingling profusely and I was speechless. But it was her rectitude and courage that transmuted me into one of the most important concept of friendships and the idea of being loved which a really few people truly witness.The thing is we all have a choice and we are all choosing. I recently had a discussion with few of my friends where we were debating on who is more...

BEFORE I FALL

  A lot of you must have found yourself running in circles trying to blush away from the power of doing nothing just to make yourselves worthy enough of either a good salary, a stable job and a sustainable and routine-oriented lifestyle...... Well to start with this is what society terms "Normal". Behaviour deviating from the normal is termed "Abnormal", people who are given a curtain to stay away from the spotlight. The thing is we educated people have not yet fully mastered to understand human emotions and feelings and hence when we are confronted with a rather abnormal episode we are unable to resort to providing basic comfort. I was struck with this very unusual situation a few months...

Art makes the ordinary extraordinary

Fast cars, Tomato Throwing contests, Actors & Instagram. Are Glamorous in this world, Instead of  Going to bed early, Long walks, Observing the sky at dusk, Kindness. It’s not that, nothing at all is glamorous. It's just that we need to direct our admiration and excitement more wisely; we need to turn it upon the things which genuinely deserve prestige.   Artists can help us. Fundamentally, art can turn the spotlight of glamour in the right directions. Artists identify things that we tend to overlook but which, ideally, we should care about deeply. We want to redistribute glamour by raising the prestige of the ordinary. Art can give honour and political power to people who are not at the pinnacle of society: to merchants, administrators, prosperous artisans and entrepreneurs. That everybody’s inner life...

Kareena: Wandering - From Art to Architecture

Sitting on my balcony, swinging my feet to the beat of the jackhammer and discerning the action across the road, a shiver ran down my spine and somehow I was able to connect and sync my heart beat to its accent. Moonlight gardens, lustrous white makrana marble, perfection in proportion, calligraphic walls tantalized me the most while viewing the most celebrated, perplexive mausoleum “The Taj Mahal’’, the crowning jewel of Indo-islamic architecture. It submerged me into a universe where I felt I sanguinely could master upon. Within clicks of seconds, I found myself capturing virtual images and redesigning my own concept of it and that is the very moment I, made this decision to become an architect in conceptualising my...
