new arrivals or homeless again?

People's homes are being demolished on a daily basis just outside of Dharavi, near Mahim and Matunga train stations. Many of these people have been living on the "pavement" next to the stations for many years and had built their homes up quite well. Now they are faced again with no where to go. In the past few weeks I have noticed these new encampments popping up just outside of the "more developed" parts of dharavi... They could be new arrivals to Mumbai, but given the heirachy of homes, I would venture to guess that many of these people are those whose homes have recently been destroyed. Posted by Picasa
