tagore nagar

Small lanes between houses in Tagore Nagar
(This area used to be a slum community in the northeast part of Mumbai, but has recently been built up a bit. The water under the concrete planks is actually open sewer. these days its a wonderfully peaceful little neighborhood, still quite poor, but doing much better than they were just a few years ago.)

I see you have a little pack of dogs who hang out back there. Interesting photo. Looks like there are boards placed on top of the wet areas making kind of a plank pavement. Interesting photo and information, and the color is good, too.

this area used to be a slum community, but has been a bit built up in recent years. that "water" is actually the open sewers. I wouldn't be surprised if most of those houses still don't have toilets inside! and yeah.. dogs are all over in this area - this was taken in the height of the midday heat, so i'm sure they were looking for a cool area to relax.
