crubling? the photos you've posted seem to show that most of them require a good paint job.

^Your standards are pretty low. They all look like they might fall down any day now.

Really? I don't know what your first hand experience is but I have seen these types of buildings in similar conditions for decades and they're standing firm. A lot of the buildings in pictures you've posted are suffering from weathering. Especially the black ones.

Twenty years from now these will probably be dominated by ugly concrete blocks. Just like how Chandni Chowk and all of Mangalore is now.

Sad but true.

One thing that is apparent from looking at all the pictures posted here - is that we LOVE MITTI !!! There's rubble & dust evident in almost every location that's been photographed.

Nevertheless, good work in consolidating the pictures on this forum.

Goes to show how fucked up we are in tyring to keep our ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE alive.. no ! DEAD !
