Former cruise liner S. S. Norway is berthed 73 nautical miles off Alang 
Former cruise liner S. S. Norway is berthed 73 nautical miles off Alang, a ship breaking yard in India's western state of Gujarat, June 30, 2006. India's Supreme Court has allowed the scrapping of the 46,000-tonne Blue Lady, formerly S.S. Norway, provided it is declared safe by experts. Greenpeace and other groups say the ship contains more than 900 tonnes of asbestos and due to the lack of modern technology at yards like Alang, it is not safe for the workers to break it.

Indian slum dwellers keep themselves warm in front of their shanties at Dharavi in Bombay February 10, 2004. Asia's largest slum lies smack bang between a high-tech business district with gleaming glass skyscrapers and a tony Bombay suburb dotted with grand Art Deco mansions. The 600,000 residents of Dharavi are crammed into rows and rows of make-shift shanties, cobbled together with nothing more than asbestos sheets, bamboo sticks, discarded canvas bags, wooden planks, old car tyres and plastic sheets.
