Just twenty minutes by metro from the center of New Delhi was the Kathputli Colony, a community of itinerant artists who in the early 1970s settled in the west of the city. What started as a makeshift settlement of puppeteers' tents from Rajasthan became a hotbed of artists with more than four thousand families from across the country.

But it seems that the city government wants to end the show and bring down the curtain on this art slum through gentrification, renovating and modernizing the neighbourhood with the construction of skyscrapers and a commercial area.
