Poverty in Mumbai

Mumbai is home to Bollywood, the Hindi film industry. It is India's business capital and tells the story of India's economic success. It is the home of Bombay Stock Exchange, with a recent more than 200% increase in the Sensex index.
But there is another side to Mumbai.
The cost of living is increasing and there is ever growing unemployment, poverty, hunger and misery in the life of the common man.Misery and poverty all around us, and how long can we ignore it?
Are we really a progressive nation if our rich become richer and our poor become poorer and fail to survive?
Where are we heading MUMBAI?
