For Jyothi, who lived in a shanty in Ejipura, the horror of the slum eviction drive in 2013 is still fresh in her memory. She was pregnant and was due to deliver in three days when the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike bulldozers razed her shanty. "There was no one to salvage my belongings and I was not in a position to lift even a glass of water. Yet, I had to ignore my pain and shift all my belongings with my neighbours' help," recalled Jyothi. Three days later, Jyothi delivered the baby. When she returned from the hospital, the newborn had the open sky as her roof. "We still sleep on the footpath," Jyothi narrated.

Residents of Dollars Colony (JP Nagar), an upmarket layout with neatly laid-out roads, wide spaces and big residences, are deeply anxious about possible demolitions in their area. When will the notice come and what will it state? How should they respond to it? What will happen to houses built on hard-earned savings and work of over 20, 30 years? These are the issues worrying the residents in the light of demolitions taken up by the Banglore Urban district authorities in other areas.
