Gurgaon is a satellite city outside of New Delhi. Its shiny facades symbolize India’s unparalleled economic growth. Gurgaon was built at the turn of this century by the largest project developers in the world. What was a village 15 years ago has rapidly grown into a city of 1,4 million inhabitants, living in glossy apartment buildings, but with little or no infrastructure. How viable is this new type of city? Residents of the gated communities of this privatized society off er insights in their hopes and desires, and in the new self-confidence of the Indian middle class. Gradually, the consequences of the credit crunch appear. In this model city, the gap between rich and poor is growing, aff ecting the psyche of its inhabitants. Is Gurgaon a new Ponzi Scheme or the prototype for future mega cities all over India?
