About the Event

Delhi has 174 ASI protected monuments and more than 1,000-odd other heritage structures and buildings. But we as Delhiites ... the typical city slickers ... are we even aware of this vast built heritage? How do we look at it? Are we proud of it? Or we look at it more as a burden? Yes, burden, especially in view of the apathetic laws, entirely anti-people approach of the authorities and the fear that having a monument in the neighbourhood will hamper development.
The ASI was formed only some 150-odd years ago. Then who took care of these magnificent monuments? The talk will explore what people used to do, are doing and can do to raise awareness about heritage monuments and help in protecting it?
