modernity at what cost
July 17, 2009

Within two years, I came back to the city and i am amazed at what we lost. Two famous Irani chai restaurants made for Coffee Day or some such big names, and another Biriyani joint has been consigned to the dustbin of history.  With each passing landmark, the city is losing a portion of its soul.  I understand the economic compulsions but what would happen if the city is only dotted with big brands  and no native symbols or historical landmarks.

Please save my city….. Not from evil but brands, from consumerism…
