Description :
By analyzing the urban subjectivities embedded in recurrent metaphors, the A. explores how people “make sense” of dispossession and ultimately, articulate their “place” in the city of Delhi. He argues that the utilization of metaphors in everyday language influences how people structure their relationships with the state, with other residents of the resettlement colony, and with the city itself, and captures the pervasive uncertainty of resettlement. Unpacking such metaphors as “guides” to thought and practice can contribute to theories on spaces of insecurity and performativity of the marginalized in the city.
