DescriptionDharavi is the second biggest slum in Asia and the third biggest in the world.The tour through the slum's narrow alleys is quite an adventure; you will undoubtedly feel the strong sense of community and special spirit that exists here. The total population of Dharavi slum is unknown, and estimates vary widely. Some sources suggest it is 300,000 to about a million. With Dharavi spread over 200 hectares (500 acres), this corresponds to an average population density estimate between 1500 and 5000 (600 to 2,000 people per acre). Due to its location and poor sewage and drainage systems, Dharavi particularly becomes vulnerable to floods during Monsoon and the slum is plagued by public health problems. Water access derives from public standpipes stationed throughout the slum. Toilets are limited limited, and are extremely filthy and often broken. Mahim Creek is a local river that is widely used by local residents for urination and defecation, causing the spread of contagious diseases Dharavi became famous through the worldwide hit movie “Slumdog Millionaire“ in 2008.
