Shahjahanabad Documentation

The ICH division undertook a comprehensive survey and documentation of intangible cultural elements still prevalent in Shahjahanabad. Two researchers, one from IGNOU, Delhi, and the second a post-graduate student from France, were deputed to conduct extensive interviews with residents of Old Delhi, to explore the rich cultural traditions of that area, and to determine how the changing socio-cultural-economic scene of the last 50 years has affected the ritualistic practises, beliefs and traditions of the communities living in this area. The survey was conducted in places such as Ansari Road, Khari Baoli, Churiwalan, Kinari Bazaar, Kucha Rehman, Punjabi Phatak, Fatehpuri, and Sitaram Bazaar.
