Jamshedji Bunder, India - Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine -- Kristian Bertel

Photograph by Kristian Bertel, Your Shot

In Mumbai there are still putrid piles of garbage all around the city. Mumbaikars accept open dumps in their neighborhoods as a fixture of the landscape, to be seen but somehow ignored like here at Jamshedji Bunder not far away from the beautiful Gateway of India. Like many other Indian cities, Mumbai has a massive garbage problem—the product of rapid economic growth, overcrowding, poor urban planning, corrosive corruption, and political dysfunction.
