The Delhi Ridge hardly figures in the public imagination of the city. This was not always so. As recently as 2006, sizable protest movements rallied to preserve Ridge land.
Although the Ridge is discussed in various domains, the narratives remain scattered and hardly capture the vital interconnections between the Ridge and larger struggles for land and resources in the city.
Intercultural Resources (ICR) is bringing out a report in an attempt to renew focus on the Delhi Ridge whose survival is essential to Delhi’s environment and social well-being.
Fractured Forest: The Political Ecology of the Delhi Ridge by Thomas Crowley, attempts to revive the long history of the Ridge along with the recent contestations over Ridge land as well as lay the foundation for a socially sensitive and historically informed approach to ecological justice in Ridge areas and in Delhi as a whole.
