The architectural profession has approached the crossroads in its development in
India, and the direction it now chooses will determine both its effectiveness in
serving society, and the validity of its future existence.
In this respect the profession must take the initiative in considering the relevant
factors concerning its future options, rather than have them forced upon it
through necessity or expediency. These factors have either been ignored or have
only been considered in a haphazard and piecemeal manner for too long and,
thus, they have had no perceptible impact on the profession to date. – Ashish Ganju, A.G.K. Menon
