Summary:
There is nothing subtle about Dharavi. The sights, smells, and sounds coming out of Asia's biggest slum are in your face. So are the numbers. The 530-acre land produces 200,000 wallets, hand bags, and briefcases every year. There are 1,000 garment-making workshops employing 40,000 people, and the 1,000 pottery units have an annual turnover of around $4 million. Dharavi is also nothing if not enterprising:  Read more...

Abstract:

There is nothing subtle about Dharavi. The sights, smells, and sounds coming out of Asia's biggest slum are in your face. So are the numbers. The 530-acre land produces 200,000 wallets, hand bags, and briefcases every year. There are 1,000 garment-making workshops employing 40,000 people, and the 1,000 pottery units have an annual turnover of around $4 million. Dharavi is also nothing if not enterprising: entrepreneurship sprouts on the roadside and developing inside tin sheds that can barely hold three grown-ups. Money is made if there is an opportunity to make it, and openings are created and expanded. And each section has a guru, an individual who arrived here with dreams and then shaped a world out of them.
