Eric Beauchemin visits Bombay, which at the time had a population of 10 to 15 million people. The city is comparable to the many sprawling urban areas emerging through the developing world and which are growing out of control. What can be done to keep them in check? For they are fast becoming major threats to the environment and to the people who live in them.
