Who doesnt know this..

The lion’s share of attention on private equity these days centers

Building New 'Ecosystems' in Mumbai's Slums

Published: September 06, 2007 in India Knowledge@Wharton

September 1, the most ambitious program yet to resettle Mumbai's
Dharavi slum entered an active phase, promising to free the city of the
biggest embarrassment in its quest to become a global business
destination. A government agency began evaluating "prequalification"
bids submitted by developers across the world to build housing and
social infrastructure to resettle the slum's residents.

Any one who wants to make a quick buck. Guys go and buy some places near these slums and you will end up in a buck or two in the long run.

What I did on Labour day weekend

I really had the best time of my life after a long and tiring. I met with nearly twenty of my friends from my Alma matter and went for a trip to Poconos.

What to say its definitely stunning to see what my friends had achieved over the past 3 years.

The trip started on saturday where we went to BuschKill falls. End up doing Trekking and Hiking ( This one was cool because we five of them skipped the trekking trail and pursued a path in woods).

Ended the day in country bar with catchup and some awesome 70s music.

Sunday we head to John Thorpe river for rafting. This one was even more amazing rafting in category 3 fore more than 5 hours.

Head back to manhattan after a tiring day around 12 pm.

Monday morning got up and head to Sarvana Bhavan a south Indian restaurant which serve come local delicacy called Dosas and so.

Continued my taking my friends around Manhattan South street seaport and Empire state building and wall street.

The night begins with Hooters which eventually progressed towards guys party in a Manhattan club.
