Photo-essay on Asia largest slum Dharavi's potters

Mumbai the financial hub of India is witnessing large scale developmental growth, laying of paver block roads, mushrooming of high rise buildings and malls and construction of number of flyovers.

Maharashtra Govt's ambitious plan of Dharavi redevelopment project which envisage providing homes to kumbharwada potter families has failed to take off.

I decided to once again visit Potters of kumbharwada in Dharavi to find out if they are aware of the tremendous changes taking place around and if it has any impact on them. After talking to them I found out for Potters nothing has changed as they go about with their daily routine of providing clay pot to the city.

I bring you photos taken during my recent visit-
