Behind the mask of Urban development are hidden the growing concerns that stem from this urbanization.

The Mithi river of Mumbai, that flows from the BKC-Dharavi region, is the most recent victim of this urbanization. This 18 Km long river is the dividing line between the unequal densities of commercial and residential fabrics. For generations, communities and occupations were thriving at the banks of the Mithi river but since the early 1980s, the nature of the river has taken a turn for the worse. Over the transects, multiple solutions have been provided to ease the difficulties of the river and the communities that dwell around it. The interventions in the targeted areas have been designed in a way that :
1. Help the river to swell
2. Add green spaces to the otherwise dull land-water edge
3. Defines the land-water edge and not allow the slum to spillover in the river.
4. Sensitizing the communities so that they keep the river clean.

Over 350 years, the Mithi river has been a prey to our reckless treatment of natural resources. The river suffers, not alone and the outcome of this suffering can be seen in the vicinity of the river.
This research and the associated proposals highlight the need to provide a breathing space for the river. The Future is NOW.
