The drawing is an amalgamation of two arguments wherein, Argument 01 talks about the current economic pattern in the nation that indicates evident prevalent of the sense of deprivation, in the population of rural as well as the emerging urban contexts of India, whereas, Argument 02 talks about the rural population, to be precise, drifting apart from the age old local construction methodologies due to the rising misconceptions of their households & methods being generalized as temporary solutions for a shelter.

Merging the two arguments, it can be concluded that the ill effects of the existing economic pattern directly has an impact on the rural population & their local & traditional architectural practices. The rural population in the present day is quite efficiently targeted, influenced & manipulated by the commercialization agendas. Misconceptions rise up within the rural population, wherein owning commercialized goods & living an urban life are seen as measures of development. This gives rise to large scale migration of the rural population to the neighboring urban centers. Eventually this gives rise to mass Brain Drain in the rural contexts of the nation. As per the theory, Brain Drain at one end results in Brain Gain at the opposite end, thus maintaining an equilibrium. But, the mass migration is destined to urban centers of Tier 1 or 2, where the market is dominantly run & based on mass production, hence resulting in exploitation of the rural population. The existence & domination of mass producing industries negates the theory which hampers the equilibrium.

Fragmenting down to rural architecture & rural economy, they function in parallel to eachother. If the economy revolves within the community or the village under consideration, based on the principles of self-sufficiency, a decentralized economic pattern can be achieved. The local governing bodies can ensure, through the government policies that are drafted in favor of rural development, the issues to be resolved on a grass root level, with the community, by the community & for the community.
