Ever since the beginning of the world, a handful of people have controlled the majority of wealth and resources, leaving the rest of the millions struggling to make ends meet.
Quite recently, photographer and documentary filmmaker Johny Miller captured this huge difference in the living standard between the rich and the poor in India's financial capital Mumbai.
Today, one more picture pointing at the soaring inequality between those who live in the slums and the ones living in high rise building in plush localities has surfaced on the internet.
Captured by photographer Pranshu Dubey, the photograph shows a belt of trees dividing the Mumbai slum from Powai- Mumbai's upmarket residential neighbourhood.
While some recommended the implementation of a socialist government to bridge the gap.
Not an economist but read few article which suggests if socialist policy apply properly and other country don't intervene,socialism could be better than capitalism. pic.twitter.com/4gbqjC2szb— Afzal (@afzalj95) August 31, 2018
Others blamed the rampant deforestation and urbanization for the deteriorating condition of the city.
This pic exactly portrays that so much of land in Mumbai is wasted and they say Mumbai got no more space. Mumbai could've been what it should've been.— Prateek (@Prateek_Jr) August 31, 2018
There were also people who blamed disproportionate development for this divide.
Nobody tried to treat root cause & only some symptoms get treated making the disease worse and defying any treatment. Development topsy turvy from the very beginning and constitution of the nation violated from the beginning which says resources not to be allowed in few hands— santosh khanna (@vidhibharatipar) September 1, 2018
Whatever the reason is, will we ever be able to bridge these extremes?
