Dharavi, one fantastic place it is, busy making Mumbai a better place to live for others by living in between the garbage, the civiized people throw around, and support themselves instead of complaining.
And this trip was an eyepoener, as it broke my perceptions about Dharavi, which is one of the largest small scale industrial cluster in India, contibuting to around 700 million USD a year. Though most of the people were living in a much miserable condition, they were more happy than most of us who has a proper bed to lay our heads on.
And our guide, Mr. Razzak Shaikh, who is a resident of Dharavi. Though unfortunate to complete his studies, I wondered to hear him speak english so fluently that I felt ashamed of myself, being a well groomed person and one who stumbles! In the whole tour, he never tried showing how worse the conditions get there, but instead he made us see the people living there as heroes, who tackle these situations.
And I sincerely recommend everyone who happens to come to Mumbai, to take a tour of Dharavi.
