It is people like Bakerji who are the real heroes of our country not our spoilt cricketstars and filmstars. It is shameful that even the media does not acknowledges the work of people like Bakerji and instead
focuses on meaningless gossips and sensationalsim.

His work has always inspired me but after reading more about his values and principles on life and his concern for the people I have a new found respect and appreciation of his work.

Here is one who did and not just talked a lot of gas like our political leaders and bureaucrats!

Some sites about Bakerji:

www.lauriebaker.net
Bakerji's website (according to Wikipedia)

Has a ton of information on Bakerji. A must visit resource for anyone interested in the legendary architect.

A nice article:

Yeah I agree with Mr Venu. Mr Baker used to regularly come to the NID, The students used to look forward to his talks since he was such an apporachable and humble man in spite of his achievements.

Thanks for this! I wasn't aware of such a website on Mr Baker which I was searching for a long time for.
