They do not even have a roof above their heads. A few have arrangements with building liftmen of commercial buildings and get to sleep on floor once all offices are closed and lifts are powered off in such buildings.

In spite of all the hardships that they face, Mumbai still seems to be an attractive work destination for many.

The population growth in India has outgrown everything else, even perhaps corruption. It is the country with the highest population density in the list of top 10 countries with highest population and with largest land. Only one country with higher population density and in any one of the two largest/highest list is its neighbor, Bangladesh. Bangladesh is in top 10 highest population list. No wonder illegal Bangladesh immigration is a major headache in India.

To commensurate this wonderful population growth story, Indian political growth is apologetically moribund. The number of seats in people’s parliament have increased from 489 to 543. To compare with population growth, since 1951 the population of the country has increased from 361.1 millions to 1028.7 millions. All the political growth has been horizontally, and not vertically……

The sad part is that number of seats in Indian parliament have been freeze till the year 2026……………………
