The Slum Outside

Elusive Dharavi

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Dharavi has achieved mythical status. Commonly, and mistakenly, cited as Asia's largest slum, it is a symbol of Mumbai's inability to meet the needs of its population, and the ability of Mumbaikars to meet those needs on their own. Commentaries usually fall back on the slum narrative, which sees Dharavi as resilient but backward, and in need of radical intervention. Matias Echanove and Rahul Srivastava of Urbz argue that it is time for this narrative to be rewritten. Dharavi residents do not recognise their home as a slum - the slum is always somewhere else, a few blocks away perhaps. Echanove and Srivastava challenge the bipolar way in which Mumbai sees itself, divided between "backward” slums and "modern” high-rises. What they call the "user-generated neighbourhood” is far more sophisticated and productive than any developer's masterplan.
