Iconic Street Art Of Dr Dadasaheb Phalke In Mumbai

Mumbai is behind when it comes to street art. You can find a lot of street art campaigns along the Tulsi Pipe road along the Western Railways barrier walls. You will find a few here and there, which are more of a nuisance. But hardly one's that are officially created by artists.

Here's one I clicked. Its located on the corporate building of MTNL (Maharashtra Telephone Nigam Limited) and it is dedicated to the legendary Dr. Dadasaheb Phalke, the father of Indian Cinema.

The True Cost - Documentary
A documentary by Andrew Morgan exposes the reality of the fashion and cloth manufacturing business. Globalization mean low cost for manufacturing and better profits for brands. But it also meant lower salaries, long work time and inhumane work conditions for the people who sweat it out to stitch every piece of fabric that goes into your clothing.

The documentary explores the lives of the people in the sweat shops in South and South East Asia and their daily struggle to make a living under conditions with no elbow room for freedom or fundamental rights.

A must watch documentary.
