Danny Boyle’s critically acclaimed Slumdog Millionaire gave us a deep insight peek into the life in Mumbai’s slums. One can definitely go for this tour in order to get a real experience about day to day life in the slums of Mumbai.
Take a walking tour of the Dharavi slum on this unique exploration in Mumbai. Follow a guide through Dharavi’s narrow alleyways, where you will be introduced to local residents and their small-scale industries — recycling, leather goods, pottery, embroidery, soap making and more. Observing these wide ranges of activities you’ll learn why Dharavi is the heart of small scale industry in Mumbai. Most of these business activities are carried out in very confined spaces involving innovative and unconventional methods.
As you continue with our educational walking tour and pass through the residential spaces, you’ll feel the sense of unity and spirit that exist amongst the people living in the slum. People coming from all parts of India live in Dharavi, and you can see this diversity in the temples, mosques, and churches that stand side by side. A tour through Dharavi’s narrow alleys is an adventure that will leave you with an enlightened sense of the purpose and determination that exist here.
