Tower of Babbel ……….

Maybe_ one day in the distant future, an archaeologist will unearth in his excavations the work infested remains of the tower. He will withdraw from the rubble finely preserved replicas of Neo Tami, Semi Palladian, Proto Gujarati Greco Roman facades with window jambs and ornamentation of an unknown and untraceable ancestry. And he will draw from the rich architectural evidence, the conclusion that there was little difference in the life patterns of 21st century India, Colonial United States, Mediaeval Europe, ancient Greece and feudal Japan. And he will need dig no more.
