Slums are the mirrors for every country in which they are…. Even we can say slums shows mirror to every person who thought that their life are just ruined…slums shows that how one can live in limited resources, slums shows that hoe one have struggle for every drop of water, slums shows that how much struggle one have to do on each day to earn sufficient money to buy food for every day…slums shows that how many taunts one have to hear every day from their bosses……..

Why the slums has created:

·      Due to lack of education

·      Due to increasing rate of population

·      Due to urbanization

·      Due to poverty etc…

There are many reasons which are responsible for creation of slums not only in India but in all over the world…

Why we all always think that HUM KYA KAR SKTE HAIN…HAMARE AKELE KE KARNE SE KYA HOGA…so I just want to say to you all that CHANGE HOGA…if we all start initiatives at our levels then we can bring a change. At least we can sponsor a child’s education…at least we can help one person financially….if every person sponsor only one child’s education then we can definitely make a bright future of our country…
