Bhamburda Goathan in Pune is a typical urban village engulfed by urban expansion. Like any other old city it is characterized by narrow streets, small houses, planters and flowers overhanging from projecting balconies made of wood, screens and lattice work creating patterns in light, small baithak (seating) at the entrance of the houses where the evening social activity unfolds. The village is in its last transitory stage given into the development pressure with newly constructed buildings as a fresh layer of paint smell wafts through the air. The edge of the Bhamburda village (now Shivaji Nagar) transformed rapidly built mid-rise buildings of offices and retail spaces. A small walk leads inside the neighborhood to a rock climbing wall and an open ground where all community action happens. The last of old buildings show signs of neglect due to lack of maintenance. The photographs capture what’s remaining of the obscure old village and its identity.
