Malini Kochupillai, a researcher and photographer, has just introduced a new hyper-local newspaper called Khirkee Voice which is all about stories from the community, and about the artists residing in this village. So now, not only will the people of Khirkee get to read about what’s happening in the world via Times Of India and Dainik Bhaskar, but also about the local activities via Khirkee Voice!
Khirkee Voice is a small in-house project by Malini, and she intends to publish the newspaper quarterly for the residents. Khirkee has been in the limelight because of the violence outbreaks against its African expats and Malini’s been capturing this through her photographs since the past four years.
This newspaper is a medium for Malini to spread awareness amongst the citizens of Khirkee about the different stories going on in the village and to document its diversity. Half the copies are printed in Hindi so as to cater to a wider audience.
It includes personal essays about the people living there, the African diaspora, various activities happening there like the Khirkee Hip-Hop Group, and accounts of anti-black hate crimes among many other things.
We’re really looking forward to reading an edition of this hyper-local newspaper!
