March 2013: Khirki village is located in South Delhi near Saket. In its vicinity are posh structures including malls, private hospitals and luxury hotels. Yet this small village has managed to retain its archaic touch by staying detached from the urban atmosphere of Delhi up to quite an extent. It is divided into separate Hindu & Muslim majority areas, has narrow crisscrossing streets and the hustle-bustle of villagers going about with their busy routines. There is also the ancient Khirki Mosque adjoining the village. Add to this assortment the gamut of graffiti and street artworks adorning the village walls and you get a spicy curry called Khirki village.
[Yantr] A picture is worth a thousand words @ Delhi
Graffiti by Yantr where he gives his take on the socio-political status in India. He shows the parliament in red color with a sign of poison whereas the public are shown as rodents. Indeed, this picture speaks what a thousand words can’t.
