A million slummers!

13 Dec

Dharavi, unlike a lot of other slums, is a productive slum, producing business worth US$ 650 million annually. From recycling to leather-ware to earthen-ware, it’s all here…

  

Walking through Dharavi gives you a good perspective… mostly on your life.

All the hardships in the world, and yet every kid we passed by smiled at us.

Population: 1 million in a 1.75 sq. km. area.

Nothing short of intense.

Here’s my product plug for the guides who did a great job and also give back to the community in forms of informal education and basic skill-set training: http://www.realitytoursandtravel.com/
