 This wheat miller lives in a slum called Dharavi, At 2.2sq. kilometers its home to around 1 million people, making it one of the tightly populated places on earth.
       
     
  Dhobi Ghat.  A well known open air laundromat. The washers, locally known as Dhobis, work in the open air, standing in rows of concrete wash pens, each fitted with its own flogging stone.

  Kamathipura.   Asia’s second largest red-light district. Often generations of prostitutes living and working together at the same place, in a government crackdown the number of sex-workers dramatically decreased from an estimated 30.000 to a mere 1500. What I found interesting is the family dynamic of the whole thing, kids playing around. Grandmothers cooking and taking care of the the children while the mother and daughter did the work.

  Trash.  Mumbai is notoriously dirty, trash gets thrown sometimes straight out the window into riverbeds and on the roadside. The monsoon then flushes it away into the sea, so a recent estimate shows that India is responsible 80% of the plastic in the oceans. As of 2018 the Government of Maharashtra, the state that Mumbai resides in, banned all disposable plastic to fight this problem.
