Mumbai’s Hidden Heart

Dharavi, Mumbai’s largest slum lies at the center of a controversy on whether the city should redevelop the land or, leave it as-is. Dharavi sits adjacent to the airport and is transcribed by two major commuter rail lines. This densely populated area teems with an entrepreneurial spirit, as residents recycle cardboard and other scrap or produce clay pots.

Mumbai’s Hidden Heart, photographed and produced by Michael Robinson Chavez of the LA Times captures the sights, sounds and stories in this neighborhood at a crossroads.
