Slum Walk out of Misconceptions


Walk your way out of numerous misconceptions in Dharavi, a 530 acre mini city. Understand the resourcefulness of the people who turn everything dumped here by Mumbai into money!

Dharavi is both iconic and ironic, popping up regularly on magazines and TV programs on slums. Slum life has had several literary outings with the latest in  'Behind the beautiful forevers' by Katherine Boo. Once a marshland that was converted into dumping ground and now a micro-system of people making a living out of the grist of the Mumbai's trash, Dharavi and her like continue to amaze people everywhere.
