My favourite photo

I took this when I was doing my volunteer teacher’s training orientation in the oldest slum in Pune.

I worry every time I hear that India is reducing the number of slums because these slums are communities and for all their problems they are home to hundreds and at times thousands of beautiful people.

In my experience getting rid of the slums never meant providing new homes it just meant bulldozing a whole lot of people’s homes.
