Lalubhai Compound

Mumbai skyline | Lalubhai complex |

Where people from slums in town are given homes or rehabilitated as it is called in officialese |
It's in M Ward in Deonar |

A lively multi-storey ghetto now surrounded by slums that will make Dharavi feel small and even Orangi in our city city in Pak |

One reason slums are livelier than these pigeon hole rehabilitation places is because they are not just homes, they are also work spaces |

When people are herded into these places, they are only given a place to stay but not to continue their livelihood |

However it's the nature of people to adapt and change and make new friends and make life better |

Life must go on and business |
