It was the month of August 2023 when we were in conversation with Anousha, a resident of old Delhi, who was passionate about exploring the unheard tales of culturally vibrant and historically rich vicinities of Delhi city. As we presented our ideas to the team, we explored various migrant communities that have not only mastered their art and craft but also captured several market hubs with their culturally embedded products. In a unanimous vigour, the vibrant streets of Uttam Nagar caught our eyes. Kumhar Gram (Potter colony) is an oasis of peace amidst the Capital’s hustle and bustle.
