Mumbai has a long way to go to modernize. Infrastructure is lacking throughout the city. As midtown develops, can the existing train system handle the increased traffic shifting away from Nariman Point to points further north? The roads certainly aren't capable of accomodating the growth.

Mumbai cared a lot for their old structures and they keep on preserving it maybe thats why its taking them too much time to develop...
Even some buses are ancient 60's,

But preserving old structures is a Good thing to do...

Mumbai's train system is still underdeveloped. New Delhi on the other hand has modern metro systems.

It's not just the public transit infrastructure, but also highways and housing. There are still a lot of slums in Mumbai. They're all around the airport to greet the visitor upon arrival.

Slums are evident in alot of major Asian cities especially those in South East Asia. But what the city does is install giant billboards to covers such areas.

Are you sure? The slums in Mumbai are much worse than the cityscapes I have seen in Bangkok and KL. In fact, Bangkok and KL are quite advanced. Vietnam isn't so bad either. The Indian ones are actual shacks and a lot of streetsleepers cover entire streets.

They do but they are not as big or prevailing as those in Bangkok, Jakarta or Manila.

If you're talking about foreign workers we have alot of them in HK. ASEAN wise, Philippines comes in first in terms of population. Indonesia is 2nd and 3rd, Thailand.

I have never heard of those refugees from Myanmar but I only heard of those fleeing to Thailand.

Yea, mostly Indonesians and those from Myanmar. I'm not sure if they have proper permit or documents to stay in the country. They can be found at the outskirts of KL and neighbouring state of Selangor.

There's a village called Kampung Baru nearby KL city centre which did not make way for development coz i heard it was preserved or something? Somebody will have to clarify this. Those traditional houses even have satelite TV and some residents own more than one car. Most foreign tourists call them slums - from what i read in travelblogs and photos taken.
