This was an unbelievably interesting experience. We saw various work places, but the way people live was just hard to believe. Our guide, Raj, was himself a resident of the slum, which was extremely interesting.

Not only It was interesting to discover the slum but the way it was done was totally non-judgmental and made you free to make up your mind on your own, which was very much appreciated. A highly recommended experience !
