    Explore The City & Learn About The Tawaif Culture At This Walk At GB Road

    Nitya posted on 09 August

    What Is It?

    GointheCity, (a start-up that helps people gain experiences in the city) is organising a walk to understand the journey that the courtesans of Delhi have traversed in the last 300 years to the brothels of GB Road. This walk entails acquainting the people with the Tawaif culture in Chawri Bazaar, identifying the last remaining ‘kothas’ there and also understanding how and why the Tawaifs were forced out of city limits to the brothels of GB Road.

    Another stretch that will be visited during the walk is the GB Road where questions such as what led women to be pushed into the brothels? How it became shameful to live here? and why GB Road is more than just a red-light area will be answered.

    Who Is It For?

    Anyone who has always been fascinated by art and history, wants to understand the Tawaif culture and is curious to know why and how the taboo around sex workers came into existence should book a spot right away.

    Why Should I Go For It?

    A lot of us have been living in Delhi all our lives but we barely know anything about the rich history and culture of the city. If you’re one of those people too, going for immersive city walks such as this one could be a start. To say the least, you will gain knowledge and you’ll get answers to questions that you might’ve been wanting to know all your life.

    Moreover, there’s only so much of malls and movies that you can experience. Do something different this weekend.

    Anything Else?

    Please note that the walk does not entail going inside the brothels or talking to the women. This is a tour of the area and the group will be accompanied by experienced guides from GointheCity. Follow the event page here.

    Tickets are priced at INR 300 per person.

    When: Aug 20

    Time: 8am – 11am
