Dharavi gets a lot of attention as Asia's largest slum. But against all odds, it's also a thriving hub of small enterprise – an activity that reflects the spirit of Mumbai. Text & Photographs PAUL NORONHA

Thanks to Mr.Paul Noronha for publishing the photos. We must thank to the workers for recycling the plastic so that they are keeping surroundings clean a bit. The pictures are very realistic and thanks to the Hindu team.

Plastic is now in villages too where the birds and cows are dying eating them. The clog the rivers and lakes in a water starved country such as ours. Plastic containers must be banned and there should be a heavy penalty on Coke, pepsi and other companies that promote the use of plastic and don't care about the end of life of their products.

Hearty congratulations to Mr.Paul Noronha and "The Hindu" for publishing this bitter truth. The pictures show the true side of India. Politicians create a mirage about the economic boom and India emerging as a economic superpower. The pictures should stir a sense of responsibility towards these people. Every morsel of food wasted is a crime - if you are a theist, it is a sin; if you are an atheist, it is agaisnt humanity. I wonder what is the relief for these people. Is India truly an independent and self-governing country, with people living a life worse than animals, even after six decades of independence ?

salute to their hardships and faith in optimism. i think we should learn the art of existentialism from them. At the face of adversity, these people share, work and laugh together. i really loved all the photographs shot with such a precision that it looks almost effortlessly done...all the very best to Paul Noronha for his future enterprises... and to reveal the hidden aspects of daily realities...
