MUMBAI: This week, CNN-IBN’s flagship documentary show 30 Minutes addresses the issue of building collapses in Mumbai, that have shot up at an alarming rate. ‘Mumbai Crumbling’ explores the factors that have led to the decay of a city that was once called the Urbs Prima of India. The documentary captures the dilemma that inhabitants of dangerous buildings face and why many are willing to risk their lives instead of facing an uncertain future in transit camps and promised redevelopment schemes. Through interviews of survivors and those fighting the corrupt system, 'Mumbai Crumbling' anatomises the notoriously corrupt civic bodies in the city and questions why all major housing policy decisions have failed to address and rectify the issue of building collapses in Mumbai.
