About the walk

This event is ticketed.

''Where will the People go?”

This was a question that riddled Urban Planners in Britain all throughout the 20th century. Would they go to the Cities, with their infinite amusements and high wages, or would they settle for the villages, with their infinite open spaces and their promise of a peaceful life? 

This question, of course, spread all over the world, and to one of the greatest building projects in the British Empire: New Delhi. While the New City was being built, there was special care given towards what trees would go into the city. Now, in the wake of indiscriminate felling of trees that is going on all around Delhi, these trees assume a much higher importance, that of the guardians of the natural heritage of the city. 

This walk explores the Horticultural History of the eighth city of Delhi, and the relationship between humankind and the environment at large.  The walk shall begin at Udyog Bhavan Metro Station, then proceed to Rajpath and Janpath, ending at Lok Kalyan Marg Metro Station, through Akbar Road and Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Marg.
