Delhi’s Lutyens zone into a future Shanghai Or was it motivated by the politician-builder nexus that would like a free hand in billion-dollar real estate deals in the heart of Delhi (File – Red Fort (above) a monument built in the Mughal era) Related News If you look outside your hotel window in central Istanbul the sightline gives you an unencumbered picture of its public life street culture homes monuments parks and bridges In the visible city lie all the daily aspirations of its citizens along with the invitation to experience its public life Look outside a Delhi window and you are immediately aware of the degraded life of urban India — illegal buildings encroaching on public land smoke-filled skies telephone lines rubble on roads unfinished housing tenements leaning against boundary walls — a wasted place without urban values or the will to govern In an attempt to partially change the Delhi view into Istanbul’s an active campaign was being waged by Intach and the Delhi government After four years of deliberations with the ministries of culture and urban development the dossier was duly sent to Unesco for approval The inclusion of Delhi in the Unesco list of heritage sites would have helped preserve the city’s architectural character and green status But in a mistimed move the nomination was recently withdrawn by the government without explanation The withdrawal comes at a time when Delhi is at its beleaguered worst Since 1970 the city’s population has doubled but its area increased a mere 23 per cent Most of that increase occurred in slums and unrecognised pockets Two decades earlier the informal space was more open accommodating and hygienic Parks and streets had substantial green cover sidewalks were used for walking Today every bit of public space is overrun by vehicles and habitation Sixty per cent of the capital’s ground space is both “recognised” and “illegal” slums — a figure expected to reach 90 per cent within a decade In view of its growing numbers and the local government’s inability to enforce urban norms the Unesco heritage tagwas critical The city’s incapacity to govern itself was to be farmed out to an international organisation that would have ensured growth in consonance with other world heritage cities — like Istanbul Cairo the historic centres of Rome Florence and Old Havana Why the withdrawal Was it part of some grand design to convert Delhi’s Lutyens’ zone into a future Shanghai Or was it motivated by the politician-builder nexus that would like a free hand in billion-dollar real estate deals in the heart of Delhi Since only Lutyens’ Delhi and Shahjahanabad were to be included in the heritage tag suspicion mounts That the heritage tag would hamper urban development was the only explanation offered The importance of future growth seemed to outweigh the colonial and Mughal characteristics that give Delhi a unique aura Indian urbanity survives at the extremes: the city sees a frenetic demolition and rebuilding with pockets of monuments in an unchanging state of stagnant preservation The Unesco tag would have staged a more democratic middle ground mapping historical quarters establishing urban cultural values and also allowing for a controlled framework of rebuilding and redevelopment Judicious additions in the old quarters of Cairo and Havana have not only accommodated population increase but have done so in ways that highlight the historic setting In India it’s a matter of national shame that so little of the country’s urban heritage is preserved Whether Bangalore Jaipur or Lucknow any drive from the still beautiful countryside is a ride into the same repeat of squalor and architectural despair everything subsumed in dust and in a ramshackle state that signals an urbanity built in a poverty of ideas No public places no greens Just a city of boundary walls insecurity and self-protection In such a scenario heritage becomes the only real modulation for the citizen’s engagement with the city’s public life Though the withdrawal of the Unesco nomination seems an ominous blow to Delhi’s heritage there exist other more modest reminders of India’s urban history — the colonial heritage of Mumbai and Kolkata the traditional architecture in Udaipur Jodhpur Lucknow and smaller towns rural homes in Kutch Himachal and Kashmir tribal hamlets in Odisha Bihar and elsewhere The government’s comprehension of the importance of these places can only come about with a thoughtful conservation approach which recognises their cultural meaning in the lives of residents and frames a policy appropriate for their protection The writer is a Delhi-based architect For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Express Web Desk | Updated: September 7

seven wicket win on day 4 at Chittagong Nathan Lyon was once again the wrecker-in-chief with the ball as he ended with figures of 13/154 This was also the second best match figures by a visiting bowler in Asia After the win a visibly pleased Australian captain Steve Smith said “I thought we played some good cricket at times in this Test match The first innings our bowling to restrict them to what we did was a real good effort Lyon took 22 wickets in this series and that’s incredible it was a good wicket and there wasn’t much for him We could have taken a bigger lead in the first innings but credit to Bangladesh they really made us fight in this series” However Smith was critical of the batting collapses that his team had suffered and after pointing it out he said “For us the batting collapses have become a regular occurrence and it is something we need to rectify We get ourselves in good positions and cannot go on with it It is nice to get to a 1-1 draw The conditions here are a bit different to what we are going to get back home; we know the conditions back home for the Ashes pretty well” Lauding the performances of his bowlers he said “Pat Cummins cranked it up today which
