Since the early 2000s, when I moved to New Delhi, the idea of  Gurugram (Gurgaon) cities expanding to plug-in cities, felt like something inorganic and unnatural, forced onto the edge of National capital. Ubiquitous fields of shining swaying wheat, paddy, sunny mustard and sunflower evaporated slowly into a dystopian dark grey skyline that never seemed complete.

I explored more about marginalized communities and the stark contrast, though always visible, started to make sense. I started documenting the lives of people in an attempt to feel and visually depict what I was seeing. Trying to make sense of why there is this huge divide between what is being taught and what is being implemented.
