Description

My Sweet Home captures Okhla, a neighbourhood in South Delhi, from the perspective of 20 children who live there. The children have written and created art about their homes, terraces, mosques, and the villages that their families come from, in a workshop conducted by the authors. The volume brings to light the many stories from this teeming, thriving corner of Delhi, often bypassed in common discourses on the city.
 
My Sweet Home also tries to resolve the many misunderstandings that people have of the place as a Muslim ghetto, through the experiences of some of its younger residents. These stories and drawings not only reflect the relationships that the children have with their neighbourhood, but also prompt an intangible connection between the reader—across region, religion, nationality– and this misunderstood, misrepresented neighbourhood.
 
Samina Mishra is a documentary filmmaker, writer and a teacher, currently with Pathways School, Noida. She also conducts workshops with children and has authored the children’s book Hina in the Old City.
 
Sherna Dastur is a graduate of the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. Some of her documentary work includes Safdar Hashmi (2000), Rah Bahari (1997), and Jungle Bolta Hai (1994).
