Keeping Nizamuddin Basti safe with masks that spread light on our heritage

29 June 2020

Located in the heart of Delhi, the historic Nizamuddin Basti is the nerve centre of Sufi culture in India. Mehnaz lives here with her husband in a humble single-room arrangement in what is called ‘Bakery wali gali’. For more than a decade, she has been part of ‘Insha-e-noor’, a women’s enterprise initiated by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC) that has been redeveloping the basti as well as the adjoining Humayun’s Tomb and Sunder Nursery.
