Only a member from the family can divulge secrets of home.

From that particular scent of homecooked food to that odd expression one makes while sleeping, these nuggets of information open up the world of emotions and love for the onlooker.

Step into the labyrinth of Dharavi, as its kids and adults alike invite you in, into their world of mischief, imagination and affection.

With Bombay Underground and NGO Reality Gives’ support, residents of this thriving place have been expressing themselves in art classes since 2009. Dharavi Art Room is the result of one and a half years of labour by these talented people who have captured their enigmatic world through drawings, paintings and photography.

From silly scribblings to goofing around, the colourful world of Dharavi is on display over this ongoing week. Peep in for a dekko!
