... It is here they are processed and made into all things leather. There are no child workers in Dharavi. There were but not any more. The leather factory (12ft x 12ft) makes bags for Gucci, Prada and several others now !

... my goodbyes to Mark and headed to the station where I would get my overnight train, 1st I got to the local train 1 stop to Bandra and then went outside to get a Tuk Tuk to Bandra Terminus, originally he quoted me 100rs which was probably at least 50% to much but I really couldn’t be bothered to try and fight over 50p.
