Feel Good Video of the Day: B-Boy Culture Breaking Out of Mumbai’s Biggest Slum

I really enjoyed this mini-doc that is essentially a lighthearted Indian B-boy version of Billy Elliot. 15-year old Vikram lives in Dharavi, a slum in Mumbai, India. It’s the largest slum in India, and actually one of the largest in the world. He tells his parents he’s going out to get milk but secretly he is learning to break.

Watch “The SlumGods of Mumbai: Hope, Hip-Hop and The Dharavi Way” below!
