    The Indian government has been trying to push forward a long-standing plan to re-develop Asia's largest slum into a multi-billion-dollar township.

    Mumbai's Dharavi slum is a hub of industry and home to over 60,000 people.

    Residents worry that the development of Dharavi might ravage their decades-old shops and eliminate their only source of income.
