The third issue of Khirkee Voice focussed on Khirkee as an Urban Habitat, the lived experiences of its past, present and possible futures. To encourage kids and adults alike to imagine their own future visions for Khirkee, two illustrators present at the launch, Ita Mehrotra and Anarya Dodes, guided those interested in an informal drawing session conducted in the newly minted Jamun Park. A group of young slam poets – Somesh Thapliyal, Cheryl Mukherji, and Prateek Pandey – introduced the community to the art form, and helped kids come up with their own on-the-spot poetry.
Khirkee Voice is edited and created by Malini Kochupillai and Mahavir Bisht, and supported by KHOJ International Artists Association.
