Since the 1970s New Delhi's magicians, puppeteers, and acrobats have called the tinsel slum, the Kathputli Colony, their home. Last year the government issued relocation permits to the colony residents; the slum is to be bulldozed, cleared for development. Experience the last remnants of this culture born out of folk art and molded by poverty.
