“Voice”@ the informal settlements in the Okhla industrial estate

Posted on July 13, 2008

The message behind the jacket says: “Main ujala hun” (I am the light).

I was interested in performing there because no infrastructure exists in informal settlements like Okhla. Most of the streets are dark or lit up by privately set up lights/peripheral lighting from homes.


explaining the project to some curious onlookers near a tea shop


walking near some embroidery factories


another conversation and a kid trying to read


walking past people bathing on a street


standing near a dark patch, mimicking a lamp-post


standing again


a lot of activity in the only lit-up square. I got two requests for similar jackets!
