NIZAMUDDIN URBAN RENEWAL INITIATIVE BY AGA KHAN DEVELOPMENT NETWORK
I had a chance to visit the works being carried out by AKDN in Nizamuddin Area. Many historic buildings such as the Chausath Khambah etc. are being conserved. One of the criticisms which is being levelled against the conservation community is that it has no relation with the community around it. Here is a unique project where the conservation of the monuments is linked with the people living around it. Conservation also means improving the infrastructure and changing the lives of the people. Here is one such great project. Thanks to Ratish Nanda who led the team.
