While so much revolution characterises education from one age to another I guess the indian system is still reeling under the effects of age old notions. Ofcourse the British influence of rigorous draughting continues to be a part of our schools not to forget construction details also reflect past day ideas. When one actually starts practising one realises how practical and real one has to be which is quite absent in the 5 yr curriculum of school....purposefully or otherwise I still don't know!
I believe its more rigorous in United Kingdom with its 3 level system of 8 yr curriculum , it is almost like no one really completes the third level! even the ones who make it to second level have had to really fight hard.
So what is it that makes an 'Architect' definitely not school ....is it ability to practise successfully? is it ability to maket oneself well ? is it ability to handle everything or be able to do a little of everything....I am still figuring out.
