We also redefine concepts

Conventionally infrastructure is defined by roads, pavements, vehicles, flyovers, bus stops and other utilities in the city. What we do not take into account are the men and women in the city who provide the fundamental services that enable education, connection, production, consumption, mobility, recreation and much else in the city.

This visual titled Urban Infrastructure was composed by HUL researcher Neha V. It highlights the unacknowledged labour of the housewife, the street cleaner, the construction worker, the sanitation worker, the hawker and countless others. They too are the city’s infrastructure.
