tigers and their forests for greater economic revenue. The film maps the

transformation. City's leading academics, urban planners, environmentalists
and activists, debate the nature of this change. The ridge, the Yamuna, the
city trees, city's poor and powerless � all have come under this axis of
change. Commercialisation of land, seems to be the mantra fueling this new
