Life around the pipelines

One of the lesser known places of dwelling lie within the pipeline, that runs from the southern part of the city, passing through Mahim Creek, enters Bandra and the subsequent suburbs that lay northwards. Near Bandra Reclamation, the pipelines have been covered and sheltered to support the flyovers that rise above the pipeline. It is within these dark tunnels that an entire society flourishes. People can often be seen appearing from within the pipes for their daily ablutions in the Mahim creek, only to disappear again within the dark spaces between the two enormous pipelines that ensure water supply to most parts of the city. Hidden away from most of the city, this place is usually teeming with people abusing drugs and other illegal activities.
