    Draughting has been a practice for such a long time now that it is difficult to imagine architecture practice without it. Indian Architectural Education gets it from the britishers. Today one uses the computer to do it .....complete switch to Autocad happened some years ago and today it is almost synonymous with architectural practice itself! The irony with using softwares is tht by the time one gains complete expertise with one software there is a new one waiting to be learnt. Gone are the days of hand sketching I almost feel am witnessing this change more than any other generation but am able to adapt to it more than the previous batch. While thrs so much uniqueness to hand made sketches computerised stuff makes it all look the same ....such an unfortunate development in this field. And ofcourse the software war is not to be forgotten Autocad vs Revit vs Archicad vs Sketch Up vs 3s max ......lets not forget that the content is more important than the tool itself!!
