Narrative cartographies in contested territories

Public spaces in Indian cities are not just an agglomeration of buildings but are entwined with complex social processes. The spatial compositions embody different aspirations, needs of people and actions that override what might be the permissible use of space to a more everyday or desired use of it. This ensemble of needs and collectively shaped areas is often read as civic disobedience, violation, and informality.
