インドを旅行中の次男からの写真です。ご一緒に楽しんでいただけたらと思います。

The most expensive private residence in the world worth 1 billion dollars inhabited by a family of 7 persons with around 350 workers. Mumbai is a city of contrasts…

Mumbai – Dharavi Slums

Having done the tour, my definition of a slum completely changed, at least for the Dharavi one. Dharavi can be split into 2 areas, business and residential.

Business thrives in Dharavi and according to the guide the business generated out of it is worth millions of dollars! Examples of business are plastic and metal recycling, textile production linked to leather and other materials. Despite the high business activity the working conditions are not exactly great. People work long shifts, 12 to 14 hrs under dangerous conditions.

The residential area. The first thing you need to know is that 1 million persons live in 2 square kilometers! Having seen where they live I now understand how this is possible. The streets between the houses are extremely narrow and the access to the multi story residences are via a ladder and not stairs. Hygene is not always the best. However this is not the full story as this applies only to part of Dharavi. There are areas, where the first residences were first built, that are spacious, clean and charming with doctors and lawyers living there. Apparently some of the houses are valued at 1 million dollars! This is due to its strategic location, the airport being near and being in the center of Mumbai.

Another particularity of the slum is the way it is grouped. It is not by class/cast, religion or race but by language. The linguistic clusters are hindi, marathi and tamil. Integration takes place between the different communities so long as you speak the language. There are around 6 public schools where the residents can access freely. Part of the tour was to visit one of them.


Entrance to the slum area. No photos are allowed inside out of respect.

Goa – Bird Sanctuary

Pretty mangroves but as I arrived late in the afternoon I saw very little wildlife. Normally at the right time and month you can see migrating birds.
