Rebuilding Mumbai - Dreams and Reality
Mumbai is described as the city that never sleeps. Life is about strife, change, getting ahead, adapting to the city’s rhythms. People catch their daily overcrowded trains and buses to work through the heavy downpour of the monsoon, through terrorist attacks, and taxi strikes. Amidst this is a city being rebuilt. Mumbai is one of the most expensive real-estate markets in the world. We explore different aspects of Mumbai’s rebuilding through by juxtaposing the old buildings with new swanky highrises, slum relocation and subsidized homes. We examine Mumbai’s underbelly - who really benefits? Is the city losing its soul?
