Thinking together in difficult times

Community newspaper Khirkee Voice is a hat tip to a multicultural urban village in New Delhi

The Hindu Business Line

The backstreets of Khirkee are crammed with shops, houses, eateries and small businesses. Within this labyrinth — the squalor of which is considered a stain on the swanky South Delhi neighbourhoods that flank it — is a white edifice. It is the office of the Khoj International Artists Association, an organisation for contemporary arts. Copies of Khirkee Voice, a broadsheet published quarterly, can be found at the entrance.

In a little over three years, the community newspaper has become the voice of the multicultural urban village in the heart of the Capital. The newspaper is published in two languages — English and Hindi — and each edition deals with a specific theme.
