On Friday the 11th Aug’15, Alpinians visited Vidhana Soudha the seat of the state legislature of Karnataka. The architecture, symbols, pillars across the building was a feast to our eyes as we descended on the second most extravagant building after the White House and also to learn the working of the assemblies.
It has been constructed in a style sometimes described as Mysore Neo-Dravidian and incorporates elements of Indo-Saracenic and Dravidian styles. The construction was completed in 1956 and ‘n’ number of resolutions has been passed over here by great leaders.
The heavily guarded building was observed at every nook and corner and we did not forget to look up to see the beautiful carvings on the ceiling too. We walked past the Ministers cabin and the assembly hall and learnt the manner of the proceedings.
Politics could have been a far thought in an Alpinians mind until this day but the walk across this structure has surely made us rethink on our careers.
