One of the Largest slums in Asia, Dharavi is a 2.1 sqkm wide home ground to about 1 million people. This multi-ethnic, multi-religious and diverse neighbourhood of Dharavi is filled with amazing stories of people and their fight for life.
Dharavi was formed in the by the relocation of the Tanneries into the old swamp village of the Koli community in the 1880s. This was followed by the wave of labourers who settled in Dharavi with hopes of a better life in their eyes. People from rural parts all over the country swarmed towards the megacity of Mumbai and as the city of Mumbai grew in unimaginable proportions, so did the population of Dharavi.
