The slums and dwells of mumbai

By vishhhy
When I find myself in Mumbai. I would stay away from the urban areas. The sloppy lifestyle in rural and semi urban localities attract me the most. The gloomy and zesty localities are the shape builders of most urbanised parts. .
.
.
The hideous locations of dhobi ghats, where a pungent odour is part of system.Thefts and petty crimes are common here. U will get to see the ink like, baking soda floating down the drains of locality filling the nearby houses. Washerman take in orders from large hotels specially from lower parel, mira road and churchgate. .
. .
.

These localities procure, process and deliver. Although delivery is confined to a few people.What unites them, is their binge force to tackle their dripping homes filled with gutter water in monsoons. The administrative loopholes also makes them all to take a stand. .
