INTACH invites you to a talk by Anuradha Mathur and Dilip da Cunha,authors of the acclaimed book on Bangalore, 'Deccan Traverses.'
"Before we have smart cities," they say, "we need to have a smart terrain – a ground that responds to the realities of a monsoon landscape. In India, this ground is being increasingly buried beneath a ‘river imagination’. This imagination encourages a history and infrastructure with questionable and often disastrous consequences. Bangalore, once seen as a place where rivers are “yet to begin,” offers a provocative starting point for the recovery of an inheritance of rain. Rain here is a ground of another imagination to be cultivated, a way to relate the past, engage the present, and design the future."
Venue Partner: Goethe-Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan
The talk is free and open to all. No registrations required!
