Up close and real

On my way back from Assam,I co-rented a travera to transit from Mumbai to Pune. It was 9 in the evening,to avoid the rush the driver took a short route through the mumbai slums.Halfway thru our trip we hit a roadblock, I powered down the windows with curious eyes to make sense of the rush, we waited there impatiently for 15 minutes to find the Star attraction of the evening, it was the water tank that quench thirst for that slum evry evening, sitting pretty inside a product of globalisation its hard to believe that the same India who's talking of a 8% GDP still have a population struggling for life.
