Balkrishna Doshi was instrumental in conceptualising and setting up one of the best schools of architecture in India, the Centre of Environment, Planning and Technology (CEPT), in Ahmedabad. Many influential decisions at the time brought about this conception to which Charles Correa, Rahul Mehrotra, Neelkanth Chhaya, Nimish Patel, Giovanni Leone and Sen Kapadia further add its relevance to. The chapter also shows the passion with which Doshi talks about the school, it is what brings about the sparkle in his eyes.
The chapter 'Eight months with olive and cheese', addresses the concerns and hardships that he faced while starting as a newcomer but believed that he was always doing the right thing, and that it was meant to be.
