Mumbai’s Aarey forest: woman fights to protect it from subway project
In the Indian megacity of Mumbai there is a city forest that is four times the size of New York’s Central Park.
It is home to a community of aboriginal people who live side by side with leopards.
The land is prime real estate and parts have been converted in recent decades.
Now the government is pursuing a controversial plan to cut further into the forest to build a subway depot.
The project has sparked widespread protests and debate over conservation and development. We follow an indigenous family struggling to hold on to their unique way of life.
