Farmers in Delhi on the edge of existence

Mohammed Abdul Sattar, 55, has been living in 'Delhi' for the past 20 years, but has never been to Connaught Place, which is hardly 8 km from his house. His 21-year-old daughter, Rukhsar Praveen, has been badgering him for the past few years to take him to shopping centre.

"I have heard it's a big shopping centre with many tall buildings, but my father says it's for the rich. But I want to it see it one day," says Parveen, sitting in her hut on the eastern banks of the Yamuna.

In fact, Sattar is not the only one, his neighbour, Tara Chand, 65, too has not ventured into the heart of the city, though Mayur Vihar Metro station is barely 700 metres from his hut.
