Walk—to explore; walk—to discover; walk, and you shall arrive.
At fifty-three, Gita Balakrishnan—an architect by profession—set out to discover India on foot.
Her main aim for going on this journey was to explore design sensibilities intrinsic to the fabric of Indian society and initiate a dialogue on design literacy.
1700 in 70 documents her inspiring story of determination, resilience, physical endurance and
spiritual growth against the backdrop of India’s diverse landscapes, cultures and architectural heritage.
While traversing 1,700 km in 70 days, from Kolkata to Delhi through cities, towns and rural
heartlands, Gita highlights the crucial role of design in every facet of our lives. She engages with local communities, immerses herself in their cultures and finds inspiration from their use of traditional construction practices. In this inspiring book, she delves into the power of design—from creating dwellings and shaping lifestyles to building communities and forging identities.
