The Mumbai slum of Dharavi is slated for â€œredevelopmentâ€, and many voices from within and outside the community are conflicted on the issue. A group of irreverent youngsters from Koliwada in Dharavi had their own set of opinions on redevelopment. We bonded with them quickly as they told us about growing up in Koliwada, its redevelopment, their childhood, their girlfriends, their ideas on love and their ambitions of owning a Lexus and a bungalow in Lonavla. Three friends from Asia's largest slum, Dharavi, talk about various things that affect young people; through their aspirations and dreams attempting to weave an image of life in Koliwada.
