    Dharavi
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Dharavi, the biggest slums in the world, has grown to be a place of tourist attraction. It is not a slum alone. Inside its open fences of poverty, lies a world full of cheerful loves and happy smiles. This place has successfully discarded the entire idea of how slums are everything dull and haywire. Started in 1883, it is home to nearly 7 lakh people and the income generated from the overall activities goes to nearly USD 1 billion. It is among the world’s most densely populated areas. It has survived many epidemics and plagues. Dharavi has definitely not bright moods every day. An island dominated with a mangrove swamp, it was later invaded by the fishermen community. It was earlier referred to as the Koliwada. This beautiful slum has opened up several small-scale businesses such as pottery, weaving, craftsmen, bakery businesses, salons, papad making, etc. It feels proud to witness the diversity amongst which live the residents of this slum. They belong to different castes, religions and speak varied languages but they share the common feeling of love and togetherness. This slum produces a variety of products and services. With the development the nation is witnessing post-independence, there have been several programs and projects undertaken to improvise the situation. Numerous cleanliness drives are hosted to spread awareness about sanitation. Many NGOs have come forward to organize workshops to educate the people about the intensity of issues like education, health, employment, etc. With the message of Dharavi’s talent and creativeness spreading so rapidly, it has been welcoming a large number of visitors every year. Dharavi sets an example of how toiling your sweat out, can elevate you to conquer the height of your dreams. Thus it is extremely important that schools organize these tours to show the children the reality of life. This often inculcates in them a sense of satisfaction and contentment. A day-long tour is sufficient to paint before you the conditions in which they slog to make a living.
