Nabajyoti shows how there was a shift in the migration pattern from the colonial to the post-colonial era, with a change in the geo-political definition of the region.

Samita Sen (Friedrich Engels): "The Condition of the Working Class in England" was written by Engels when he was 24-25 years old. The first English translation of the book came much later in 1886 and was published in the US. One of the documents that is used extensively in the book is the investigation by the English health authority after the cholera epidemic of 1831-32.

In many ways, this is the book that anticipates many of the most common sense arguments about industrial urban planning. The books provide an overview of the dynamics of class formations in the development of the industrial system.

Supurna Banerjee (IDSK): Making cities that make labour: Understanding Kolkata through the perception of the construction workers.

We get snippets of how congestion was seen as detrimental to the well-being of the city's residents. But the newspaper has the space to investigate what is happening in itself with the body of the city, claims Dr. One of the members of the audience said that the paper on construction workers particularly interested him as he had done a study on subway workers in Calcutta. in the 1980s.

Specific cases called for different methods and often the state's profit had to be sacrificed. The paper uses the newly digitized archive of the Calcutta Improvement Trust to explore this process of creating a rentier economy in the history of urbanization in the twentieth century. In this paper, Bandyopadhyay studies a specific form of "primitive accumulation of capital" in central Calcutta in the second decade of the 20th century.
