I am Varsha, a resident of Hyderabad, India and a practicing licensed Architect.
I was born in Manipal, Karnataka. However, I have lived in Bombay and Hyderabad most part of my life. Living and visiting major cities and visiting my hometown frequently have given me the best of both worlds. Ever since I began pursuing architecture, my way of looking at everyday spaces had changed, I always looked at it in terms of heights, distances, clearances and why built forms were the way they are.
I concluded that it is a reflection of the people, community and their lifestyle. The same type of room is used in a different way as per the social norms in the local community. However, this strong connection and uniqueness is gradually deteriorating owing to rapid globalization.
This blog is a journal of my thoughts about everyday life ‘spaces’ and life in general.
