Vigyan Lok site

-by Salomi Nautiyal


Moving ahead from the AGCR site to the Vigyan Lok site, the drain here was of slightly smaller size as the Chirag Delhi site. Nevertheless after talking to some people from the community dhaba near the Vigyan Lok, I was advised against visiting the site. However, being my stubborn self, I decided to find another way to get to the drain. After speaking to a rickshaw puller, who seemed interested in helping out, we were on our way to a kuccha track that runs parallel to the drain.

Towards the right of the path lies an abandoned building and open space, which makes for a promising intervention for the wetland. But this will have to be postponed for after we’ve navigated through wetlands in communities that are likely more receptive to our work.

The path curves slightly towards right and I finally reach the rear entry to the community. And this is where I get to hear a warning from the rickshaw puller about this being “a bad area and how we should return”. Prodding him further, I learn that the area is notorious for nefarious activities, which he doesn’t explain any further.

Like I said, postponed, but on file nonetheless!
