thanks gita for your posting. Gauri Vij, Managing Editor of Architecture Time Space &
People got back to me with contact details of Kalpana Sharma. I shall be meeting both
of them in Mumbai. But I would be grateful if some more people from Mumbai could
help me out on this. As I understand Dharavi is an oft studied issue, so if people can
throw some light on it.

has anyone, especially from Mumbai, on this list got
back to nidhi?

nidhi, the 500 cr gift for dharavi came when wsf 2004
was on, and is first on list of things accompanying
the statement against housing-rights-events on it, got
forwarded for 'appropriate action' to Secy MoUD from
President Secretariat in February.

buzz now is probably because of what's in the rajya
sabha press release of 16.08.04 at
http://www.pib.nic.in/hrelease/h-release.asp?relid=1331


in mumbai i don't know who is tracking this round (it
goes back to PM grant in Rajiv Gandhi time).

in delhi, spa has at least one recent thesis. hudco
must have something since they hosted sparc after
mumbai model for delhi was announced in 2002. dda
also, since they said at action-aid night shelter do
at ihc in july 2003 on behalf of vc (now moud secy)
that they were studying it with hudco and then
announced 3 pilot projects.

in delhi this sort of thing is outright illegal
profiteering on public land and incapable of working.
rep about is pending hearing with standing
parliamentary committee since July 2003, while rajya
sabha has issued this press release in undp compliance
a day after ID.

Hi All,

I am doing a write up on Dharavi for Down To Earth
magazine. Need to
understand the rehabilitation model of Dharavi which
is being touted as
'ideal'. As far as I understand, this model is a
sham with lots of legal
loopholes and master plan violations. I am
travelling to Mumbai in the
first week of Sept for the same. Can you pl feed me
with info, research
papers, books, etc etc? If you could tell me their
titles, I will look for
them and read up. Apart from that any important
contacts in Mumbai
whom I should meet up. I do not want to land up with
'wrong' experts.
So any word of caution.

Gita, I know I am bugging you again, but can I come
and meet you
sometime if you are free?

Regards,
nidhi
