I have been enjoying the ‘Urban Longings’ series that has been appearing in the TOI lately. UL (supported by Lavasa) aims to present the views and thinkers and opinion makers on why India needs new cities.
Here are the links to the articles. TOI epaper is online for only a week after publication, so I’m not sure whether these links will still be valid. I’ll update/delete the links in a few days.
