Samvaad 3: Do we know our communities: Anand Parbat story

Speaker: Mr. Prakhar Nigam, Project Co-ordinator, CURE

Anand Parbat area in west-central Delhi has a complex history of jurisprudence. The community along with the factories has emerged amidst this confusing legal tussle between the State and a private body. The talk commenced with definition of space and its linkage with activities and the people owning that space. Various elements of the community were explored in terms of topography, demography and resource allocation. Access to water because of the topography and low sex-ratio in the area were key points of discussion about the area. An innovate tool called ‘sociogram’ as a tool was performed in the community to identify the various local leaders in the community and involving community leaders to take charge of community activities.
