the struggle for life....(2)

Another big project is the construction of the Delhi metro, which in fact does mostly run on bridges
New metrostations are finished in an incredible speed. Apart from providing appropriate means of public transport for a city of 13 million, the project also provides work and income for many thousands of poor peopleMost of them live on the construction site and without running water, sewage and electricity.
When the works are finished, they will have to move on

Garbage accumulates outside the shacks
Children search for recyclable plastic, paper or metal....
Another way of income is to collect cow dung, dry it and sell it as fuel
and the final result, the shiny new and top secret metro station of Karol Bagh
