Evolution of Our Cities
Since India’s Independence in 1947, our cities have come a long way, transforming into hubs that drove growth in the country and catapulted India into the 21st century.
However, cities in India began to face a host of problems - congestion, unplanned growth and pollution. To understand these problems, we have to go back in time. In this episode, we take a look at how cities in India have evolved since Independence and the colonial legacy left behind by the British, which remains to this day.
In this series, the next 3 episodes will deal with 3 primary challenges our cities face - The Problem of Housing, Environmental Issues and Governance.
Join us, as we take you through the making of our cities, with insights from experts and solutions on how we can make the road ahead better.
