Perpetual Construction ...

Wednesday, June 15, 2005

From a visit to the Export Promotion Tech Park in Whitefield.

All around that place, almost wherever you look, its full of buildings under construction. Office complexes, Apartments, Trade centers and all. Full of huge half-finished concrete structures with protruding steel skeletons and little men moving about them in yellow helmets.

I remember reading somewhere, of someone sitting on his rooftop in a distant suburb of Boston and looking at the dusty sky above Boston far away. Dust rising from the perpetual construction of Boston, like a distant herd of buffalo charging in the planes.

And whenever I see huge structures being constructed, the first thing that comes to my mind is Howard Roark, and The Fountainhead.
