Dheera Sujan revisits Jagriti, a small school in a New Delhi slum where she taught as a volunteer some years ago. When the Indian government decided to relocate the slum dwellers and bulldoze the area, a new location had to be found. The new Jagriti is now located in a small village in West Bengal, 1600 kilometres from the old location. What has changed over the years?
