Description

Dharavi is a well-known locality in Mumbai and It's actually the second largest slum area next to orange slum (Pakistan) in Asia. The population of this neighbourhood is approximately over 700,000 and people from various religions and cultures are found here.  During the approximate 1-hour drive, pass through the red-light district of Kamathipura and make a brief stop at Dhobi Ghat, the world’s largest open-air laundry.  This dhobi ghat is the home to the dhobis and their families for decades. The Dhobi Ghat has seen that the occupation passed down from one generation to the next and around 200. Dharavi is a multi-ethnic and multi-religious area and once we proceed we can understand the difficulties faced by these people. This drive can give you a deeper and better insight into slums especially on Dharavi. On the way, we can understand that there had been many plans in past to redevelop Dharavi but they all failed utterly due to lack of financial support. Dharavi also suffered due to many epidemics. These epidemics in past left Dharavi completely devastated. These issues actually affect only the poorer people of our society.
