What Heritage?

Most Indian politicians and bureaucrats have scant regard for architectural heritage… but Jairaj Pathak takes the cake! He has made the most ridiculous statement on ‘Heritage Buildings’… “What use is a heritage building if not even 10 people visit it?” Mr. Pathak… you are better off joining Taliban, the Bamiyan Buddha Destroyers!

Crawford Market (Designed by Rudyard Kipling’s father) is one of the enduring legacies of Mumbai and some stupid bureaucrat can’t just ruin it to suit the interests of the builder lobby. 3M requests each and every Mumbaikar to protest against this decision... Thankfully the local MP (Milind Deora) has voiced his support for conservation of this heritage structure!
