decoding the mystery called Mumbai.......the city that never sleeps
Oh, this is terrible and sad as well.Nice shot by the way!
Yes, very sad because if the city is planned now, all these slums will be demolished. And I wonder if all these slum dwellers will be able to afford accomodation in the city. I hope they are rehabilitated by the authorities.
I visit Mumbai almost every year. Its so bizzare... there is this flyover being constructed on the highway just where the airport road meets the highway. That flyover is being constructed for almost 2-3 years now. In the meanwhile slums & hutments have mushroomed under the 'work-in-progress' flyover already. Before we know it, they'll be legalised too.
I am still making my way through the Theme Days posts and found yours, with the history, to be very powerful. I hope the right people are reading your blog. What a tragedy...
Thanks. I wish I could influence atleast a few Mumbaiites to take their environment seriously.
