Children belong not just to their kin but also to their kith. But in the urbanscapes that so many of them inhabit today, what is their kith, their land? And in our increasingly sanitised and scrutinised world, how can they wander through this and forge their own links with their kith?
I worked with children, 7 to 10 years old, to explore the neighbourhood that is home to of their Library. Over 4 days, the children observed, photographed and interviewed what they saw, what they heard and the people they encountered. They used all this as a reference material to put together a short narrative account of the neighbourhood, Nizamuddin. Here is a glimpse of their work.
