Tall buildings often tend to enchant people and vouch for their prosperity and infrastructural development. There are a lot of skyscrapers in Indore and in our locality, there is a building with the name ‘Shivalik’. It is very tall, with approximately 23 floors and often is a source of awe and amazement to the people.
The building contains a lot of apartments in it and people often go agog to buy a flat for themselves in that building. It looks aesthetically pleasing and is very attractive and mind-boggling. One might even get a sprain in one’s neck while looking at the top of the building. The building has some exquisite paintings drawn all over it with some entrancing colours that give the eyes pleasure.
With all the magnificence and magniloquence set for the exterior looks of the building, I’m not too fond of it for a variety of reasons. First of all, the very fact that the people who used to live in the plot that building was constructed on had to be dislodged from that land. Secondly, no safety measure is taken for the people living on the higher floors. Over and above that, there is no restriction for the children to climb up the stairs of the terrace, which is highly perilous for the children there.

Part 3 Questions
Compare thе differences between the constructions іn уоur city wіth thеm іn 20 years ago? Describe thе building styles іn details?
Buildings that were made almost a decade or two ago were majorly horizontal buildings that used to take up a lot of space and, at the same time, were not very tall. Contrastingly, the buildings that we see today are vertical buildings and are very lofty, with a lot of apartments aimed at accommodating a large number of people.
Whаt аrе people’s attitudes toward building today and thаt оf оur lаtеr generation? Shоuld wе protect them? Why?
Everything that is primordial and old has a sense of intrigue and marvel in it. Therefore, the buildings that we had earlier and continue to stand firm even today are awestriking and building curiosity. The buildings that we see today are very typical to perceive and it has nothing to feel enraptured by or intrigued about. We should protect the ancient buildings as much as we can as they are the reflection of the opulence of the past and cultural richness of a place.
What role dо уоu thіnk thе оld and modern buildings play іn thе society?
Old buildings play a significant role in discussing the situations we had in the past and speaking about the plans devised while constructing those buildings. In contrast, the new ones talk about the mechanism by which the present situation is managed and contained.
Compare thе differences bеtwееn house аnd apartment.
A house is a distended form of an apartment and is generally spacious and palatial, whereas apartments are less spacious and less commodious as compared to a house.
Meaning: In contrast
Eg.: He was, contrastingly, a dacoit in a family of saints.
Eg.: This is a primordial monument and hence has gained such popularity.
Eg.: They have played a significant role in channelling the canal.
Eg.: The parachute kept on distending and ultimately went out of order.
