In 'The Beginnings' chapter of the film 'Doshi I', BV Doshi discusses his early life’s sojourn, as an architect who travelled to work with Le Corbusier in Paris and then returned to India to then become his apprentice for his buildings here. Life took varied unexpected yet welcoming turns that he whole heartedly accepted. He addresses the domino effect and chain of actions and reactions that bought him to where he eventually belonged, many he thought were unpredictable.

“The story is very simple, allow life to take its own course, and you will be taken where you are supposed to go.” - BV Doshi
