Dharavi slums of Mumbai is the largest slum of Asia with a numer of families in more than five figures. There has been some half hearted efforts to rehabilitate them by the Politicians-Promoters complex but all in vain so far.

The politicians know it all. They have no time for such petty things. There is no money and votes are a good reason to exploit their poor status by all parties to leave them alone till every election.

These leaders do not consider them Indians untill some foreigner films them and awards Oscars. Then it becomes a prestige issue. Unfortunate but this is India's true face these leaders represent.

God bless

Other thing that may be said about these dwellings in the slums are that they pose a biggest threat to security and law and order problems. Once a person gets inside this area, s/he is untouchable and untraceable due to its labyrinthine construction and intricate inside designs.

I am told that daily a huge tranction of big business turn over takes place in this slum area including smuggling of goods, drugs, human trafficking, planning and execution of local city crimes and such activities. Nobody dares go inside these enclaves for fear of life and torture even in the broad day light.

Administration either knows it or sleeps on it untill some real problem awakens them. This does not bother MNS goons.

At this stage, I haven't a clue whether it's a voyeuristic holiday in other people's misery, or an essential education, illustrating the terrible conditions other human beings have to endure. Although the ride from the airport showed me that the streets outside are lined with the poor and sick, who just seem to sleep where they fall, right now I'm happy to eschew such deliberations, hit my welcoming mattress, and enjoy a blissful slumber.
