Then the second day, we first visited Dharavi.
Frankly, it's not that bad as slums, it's like some low income community in other parts all over the world. People lived there had their livelihoods, have there social networds, have their temples and mosques. Just the density in the area is super high and they have no rights for the houses they lived in thus they lack an access to all the infrastructure they need...During our interviews later, we found most of the people there are very kind and working hard, the space is crowded but when we ask their will about space, many people said if they could have one more room, they would be very happy and satisfied. They wills are small. However, even the house they are living now is under the rick of being taken by the government...
And what impressed me is that in Dharavi we even not came across children begging for money. The kids were attracted a lot by the camera in my hand and always begging for photos~
IT'S A BIG COMMUNITY WITH PEOPLE'S LIFE AND WORK, IT IS NOT A SLUM!
we came across a wedding in a street of Dharavi~
