The Real Sum Dogs of Mumbai

This is a video of Dharavi, the most talked about slum in the world. It is located on one square miles of the most desirable land in Mumbai in the densest population in the world.  The land is worth ten billion dollars. You will meet the rag pickers who have triumphed over their surroundings to become a city of dreamers. . . . . Your heart will be stolen away.

On  Monday , I will tell you about the stories we heard from a large architectural firm and their side of  trying to house the poorest of the poor in India.  If you have time, please look at the video first.

    This was really interesting. At heart, we are all the same – with a love for family and friends, just trying to survive. I find myself very grateful to be an American with my “first world” problems…

    So heartbreaking. How many Americans would go thru that to support a family instead of going on welfare or some type of public assistance. Such strong, caring people to endure so much for so little money.
