Ever since I was young, I have had an eye for aesthetic arrangement and structure. These things are what I observe first when I see anything around me. Observing buildings, houses, and natural surroundings is what I love to do the most. Drawing is my passion; I just didn't realise it until we decided to renovate our home. It had been 20 yrs since the house was first built by my grandparents, and my parents decided to renovate it 5 years back. As days passed by, designs were going back and forth, and ideas started floating in my mind. My grandfather would explain me the technicalities in the floor plans and I would sit with my parents during their meetings with the architect. Two new rooms were added and I saw the steel and concrete that went into the making of the rooms and unlike other kids of my age, I found it interesting.
I would always appreciate pretty houses, furnishings, even a gate or a fence, or even a bench or a pot. My interest shows in the way I arrange things in our house, my room, our garden and how I use my pencil and paper efficiently. Now that my own house was being renovated I didn't want to lose out on the opportunity to give my inputs. So I did, and to my surprise even the architect liked them and decided to use a few of them in the house. It was then that I realised that this was what I really wanted to do when I grew up. My family and close friends too, believed that I had a knack for these things and would definitely make a good architect.
It has been two and a half years now (yes, it was one lengthy process of renovation) and we just finished making the last room.my room. I designed it completely. I also managed to accommodate a few of the motifs and designs that I've created, into the furniture.
Architecture is sheer hard work as my father quotes it, but my interest in the subject will help me cope with that. besides there is no profession where you don't have to slog it out right!? Today my room is complete and I feel proud to show it to everybody.
