Imagining BIAL

Actually,about BIAL it is not that it is square, but that the squareness is very uninspiring. i want piped carnatic/hindustani/fusion and filter kapi and badami murals/chittara/mysoreminiature/ and a big stone thorana/gates stuff that will say wilkommen to the kadamba land in the second millenium. all that about KA that lies scattered could have been consolidated. the one element they had was -rangoli- even that they shot down. whatever... enough dreaming :D

I am sure BIAL will be very efficient and will look good too.. Its right that when one sees HIAL they will be stunned but I am sure BIAL will look great too - one negative part on BIAL is that the authorities did not show off their designs unlike HIAL website does. But I am sure when its done - it will be very efficient and beautiful - Infact I have travelled a lot and BIAL reminds me of Atlanta Hartsfield Intl Airport when we look from outside. Awesome :)
