Is this successful slum upgradation?
Here are some shots of a slum upgradation project in central-south Bangalore. Also, officially a slum must have 20 households according to the official definitions. This area has a sign saying that it is linked to a Construction Workers Union.
Here is a woman collecting wood and sticks, probably for cooking, in a field close to the project. The contrast with the Kingfisher stewardesses in their short skirts behind is reflective of many of the sharp contrasts everywhere.
Now, moving up a bit, here are some other small houses.
