A big time tourist attraction for Mumbai - billed as the world's largest laundry, and setting the Guinness Book of World Records entry under ‘most people hand-washing clothes at a single location’ in 2011, according to its Wikipedia entry.
But I don't visit regularly as I do other Mumbai locales. For one, to gain access you will be forced to pay a guide for around 300 rupees per person, although I've had one scoundrel try to extort 2,000 rupees per person when a friend and I visited one time. I don't have a problem paying the usual entrance, but I'm not impressed with the brief tour, which you'll be lucky if you can squeeze more than 20 minutes or so out of it. Apart from this small personal complaint, there's something appalling knowing that the workers there put in 18-20 hour days working in dark and dank conditions that any Morlock would be proud of. This is the fact that I see omitted from the tourist brochures; and we're paying to see modern wage slavery in action and we're supposed to praise and marvel at the ingenuity that makes such a grand-scale place operational. If anything, we should be there to document the place, to write about it within a social context. Because there's no longer a need to pay homage to questionable institutions created during the British Raj simply because they still exist and turn a huge profit for but a few individuals.
