Work in Progress


The Indian Constitution guarantees one the right to life and enjoy it with dignity too. Right to Life is closely associated with the Right to Movement and a corresponding Right to Play. 
One cannot be deprived of these legal rights except by due process of law. 
Whether a swimming pool on South Mumbai's Backgarden has legal sanction or not isn't the important thing. What matters is that there should be proper public consultation in the regard. And, the interests of weaker segments should be safeguarded
'Save Backgarden' - A documentary produced by DraftCraft Productions - has been created only to put all the political parties' perspectives in one place making it easier for anyone to understand the issue. Even a social media campaign through Facebook to Save Backgarden has been launched. The Right to Play is one that's taken for granted. While the affluent have play spaces of their choice like clubs and gymkhanas, the poor are left with little option but to use public space into their own play space. DraftCraft works to identify these zones - local grounds, even footpaths and salt-pans where they play to grow. And, aims to protect the right.
