A very realistic capture for the day! Great shot!
Thank you Sylvia
Potential "Slumdog Millionaires". Actually I wouldn't be surprised if some of these boys have a million (Rs.10 lacs) already stacked away somewhere !
Thank you Kavita
Your images are always so fascinating Deepak, such a different way of life where things are still sorted by hand instead of huge machines. Wonderful 'slice of Mumbai life shot'!
Thank you Grace
Thank you Rupam
Aah!!! This is truly a Mumbai Daily photo blog! In btw, there is a recent book called "Beyond Beautiful Forevers" in which the main character is a young adult boy who sorts and sells scrap including plastic. Extraordinary book! In this photo, the place is relatively well-organized and systematic. I am surprised.
The recycling industry in Dharavi is very organised.
Thank you Jama
Raw and neat. Brilliant!!
Thank you Ashwini
This is quite some picture!
Nice click... the reality of LIFE (of the poor and under-priviledged)
Thank you Shobha
Very organised. That was what I thought too. This blog really is a documentary on the commercial capital.
Thank you. Am glad.
What a wonderful blog- I will link to it. So good to see recycling in action.
Thank you so much Chrissy
Thank you Vineeta
HiThese guys do it for a living? They are actually contributing to the Go-Green movements. God Bless them!
Yes Jayashree it is a big organised industry in Dharavi
Container- given my Shipping Background, from the title i thought- they are “Container Vessels” . Your plastic containers are similar boxes they load in Container Ships.
Now! That is a great service they are doing. Hope they are paid well.
So dirty job and they must do it to earn some money. Very realistic photo !http://nukkekotinukke.blogspot.fi/
a real life photo...thanks...
Gritty - showing the hard work behind the facade.
I knew you will put something unique, I would not have thought of these containers for the theme . lovely Deepak sir.. Bikram's
Thank you Bikram
what a hard condition for them
That kinda takes one's breath away...how mind-numbing to sit there and sort through trash! It's the kind of situation many of us would rather not know about or see. Ignorance is a kind of protection from an unruly conscience!
Is India's wealth based on this Dickensian way of business?
This is just a spoke in the giant wheel that generates India's wealth.
