I believe it was an old colonial villa and has been restored as a heritage property but I am not positive about this...

it was never an old colonial villa. The structure looks new and the roofing is obviously concrete based.

No , No actually its 99.99%. The rest are all poor and beg for their living.
All the buildings and and cars and villas and malls you see in the pics are actually paper cuttings done by some devious photographer to decieve innocent minds like you.
Get a life .

every city has its pretty face

assure that the slums of Mumbai Indian shows no

after all, these beautiful and modern buildings do not live or 0.1% of Indian

but in the dirty slums live more than 60% of the population of cities like Mumbai, Dheli, Calcutta

amazes me how you like to hide the reality
