[Video] An Eyewitness’s Shocking Account Of Mumbai Slum Demolitions: Builders Vs. The Poor

It is very truly pointed out in this video, that houses, or let’s say very tiny rooms in Mumbai are available at the cost of gold. The poor in Mumbai, don’t dream of huge palaces with big gardens, or a flat in the numerous sky touching buildings in the city. They know how to live with content under the one room roof that they can afford. But what if even that is taken away from them? Where should they go to protect their shelter; especially when they are on one side, and the government, builders and local goons on the other side? The video tells the tale.
