Pressed in Steel: Part I
Wazirpur is one of 29 industrial areas spread across the National Capital Region. Not until the past 20 years, Wazirpur industrial area was barren land with hardly any inhabitants. The place has now become crowded with small-scale factories attracting a large population of migrants usually from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Bengal. In this Photo essay, we look at the lives of Shramiks (workers) in the Wazirpur Industrial Area.

Thousands of jhuggis are built around the major industrial areas

In this Photo essay, we look at the lifestyle of Shramiks (workers) in the Wazirpur Industrial Area.
