Mumbai's housing crisis

Mumbai has 500,000 vacant apartments, yet 8.6 million residents live in slums. What is behind this startling contradiction?

    I am calling on God. For generations we've worshipped you and to this day, none of our problems have been resolved. You leave it up to us and look at what is happening. We are animals preying on the weak and disadvantage. This is a big jungle and it is the survival of the fittest. I say stop having children so your children will not end up on the same fate. God bless us all!!!

    अपार्टमेंट खाली पड़े हैं तो क्या बिल्डर इन सब गरीबों को फ्लेट दान कर दें और खुद झुग्गी में रहने लग जाऐं नेहरू जी ने राजस्थान में गाड़िया लौहारों को मकान बनाकर दिऐ ताकी वे इधर उधर नाभटकें लेकिन उन लौहारों ने मकान किराऐ पर चढ़ा खुद फिर गाड़ियों में घूमने लग गऐ और इसी तरहा झुग्गीया भी विस्थापित की जाती रहीं हैं लेकिन ये लोग मकान का कब्जा लेकर उन्हे बेचकर या किराऐ पर डालकर फिर नई झुग्गीयाँ बना रहने लग जाते हैं

    This is how the world works. It is universal over most parts of the world. The biggest cities in the world have the biggest slums in it to.

    Its a fact denied by selfishness. By 2034 the givernment will change and the residence will increase and everything will come back to square one. Mumbai needs to expand to accomodate its residence
