Zameendari Zimendari // Land Ownership to Responsibility 41.17 MB - INTRO: In March 2013, we entered Tigra, Gurgaon, a traditional village that has been standing for seven generations. Tigra and its agricultural land are slowly being encroached upon by immense economic pressures, high-rise developments, and the arrival of a new lifestyle. Over the course of the month we listened to locals stories and experiences, creating spaces and events for open discussion and activities where stories and sentiment could be shared amongst residents. These conversations bare witness to accounts of community, power, culture, and values as they collide and change.
This book is the product of active research and inquiry into this transformational moment in time in which Tigras agricultural lands are liberalised from traditional customs, making way for a new era in its story.
