i am shocked, this is appalling and inhumane , these people deserve so much better. The government and ridiculously greedy multi-billionaires in this country should be made cough up some of their cash to build decent hygenic towns for these destitute people. it is atrocious they should be left to survive this way. I live in Australia, our government provides lovely houses for the poor, and regular welfare payments. These godforsaken people in slums should be taken care of by their own government , and the excessively rich made chip in, as their contribution to charity for their fellow citizens.… Read more »

This is really bad, one side the country is growing rapidly but most of people who develop the country only make slums like this because they care about only them they do not care about the people because many people in india only have more “BLACK MONEY” one session say that india is the fast growing county BUT another session say that more than $4 billion money in the “SWISS BANK” have been from INDIA.(a person from another country).

Dont think only about your city think about your country(a person from another country).

Its really sad to see the slum face of our so called ‘technologically advanced’ India of 21st century. Its sadder that these people r not getting chances to improve their standard of living. Rather they r humiliated very inhumanly by the so called educated people like us. CAN WE REALLY SAY…… ‘SAARE JAHAN SE ACHHA , HINDUSTAN HAMARA’ ?
