The Wider Image: Some Mumbai residents risk safety for affordable, central housing
Aarav, 4, Rahul Makwana's son, sleeps in the new home his family moved into at the Worli dairy quarters building in Mumbai, India, August 2, 2023. The crumbling structure, which houses more than 600 people, has been categorised by local authorities as grade 1 dilapidated building and could collapse during the city's heavy monsoon season. "I was the only one living on the 4th floor in this wing of the building,” said Makwana. "The government had asked me to move out because they plan to demolish the entire floor because the pillars of the building can’t take the weight anymore."
