Walking (literally and notionally) allows ‘mobility’ by trespassing cultural, social and class boundaries. In the unique historical setting of Delhi, walking around is also an interesting play with the idea of time. For instance, the ‘journey’ between a monument built during the Delhi Sultanate and a newly constructed metro station (barely a few meters away and where its many citizens cross paths), makes walking in Delhi a fascinating experience.
The walks are designed with the hope that they generate curiosity for the lesser known, appreciation for the unfamiliar, nostalgia for the outgoing and new possibilities for future Delhi. The Delhi Walk festival shall celebrate the vibrancy and multiplicity of this fast transforming city, while dwelling into its history, composite culture and myriad narratives.
