A bachelors degree in Sociology from St Xavier’s College, Kolkata after which worked with The Energy and Resources (TERI) for one year. At present in the fourth semester of master’s degree in the School of Habitat Studies at Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) . The pace and nature of urban transformation that has been taking place in the country really intrigues me. It is not only being shaped by global forces but also wiping out the essences of the local. There has been a great amount of obsession with planning of big cities and optimal uses of urban spaces. To my mind this direction of urban change has not been inclusive. Through this workshop I wish to understand the differentiated use of spaces within a city when the city itself is in a major process of overhaul and makeover.
