DHARAVI Slum for sale


At the heart of the constantly growing megacity Mumbai lies Dharavi, India’s biggest slum. Close to a million immigrants from all over the country live and work here, contributing a vital share to the city’s economy. In this no-man’s land urban planner Mukesh Mehta sees his chance of a lifetime. Dharavi is to be knocked down and its profitable real estate to be turned into billions of Dollars. “Dharavi, Slum for Sale” follows the struggle between tradition and modernity and the fight of the underprivileged to defend their homes and livelihoods against mounting globalisation.
