“Mimamsa” means “to think, consider, examine, or investigate” in Sanskrit. These blog posts capture my reflections as an architect, college professor, practitioner, code official, thinker, and a tourist. They constitute Mimamsa Diary. Just as a flock of birds in the sky displays the power of collective movement, I hope that the collection of these blog posts transcend the individual posts and create a composite picture of a personal journey that is full of intrigue, excitement and adventure.
As a college student, I travelled extensively in the United States, India, Greece, Italy and Egypt along with brief stops at various European destinations. During my early career, I continued to explore destinations in the US, Mexico and Central America. My focus has always been to explore the architectural and cultural history, and to gain deeper insights into people and places. Over the years since then, I have taken solo trips or travelled as a family to destinations in Europe, Asia and South America. The most recent travel was to Thailand and Indonesia, just before the pandemic hit us.
