Several links with pictures, video and audio about Dharavi and life there:
The Places We Live explores four slums across the world, including Dharavi.
This is an audio slideshow from The Guardian.
Article and photo gallery from the National Geographic.
BBC Interactive tour of Dharavi.
Your homework is to explore these links (and any others you find - there are lots of clips on YouTube too), and to leave a comment explaining:
- whether you think Dharavi is a "slum of hope" or a "slum of despair"
- what you think of the redevelopment plans for Dharavi.
Your comment should explain your ideas with reasons - not just a sentence or two - and should include your first name (not full name... if there are two of you with the same name, put the inital of your surname too).
