近年印度經濟發展迅速,有望在十年內成為僅次於美中的世界第三大經濟體。這片國土上,國際化高樓大廈與貧民窟形成強烈對比,貧富懸殊極端。主持人盧琛走訪印度最大城市——孟買,探索這古老恆河文明國度在實現大國夢路上生生不息的一面。



作為亞洲最早擁有火車的國家,鐵路至今依然是當地主要的交通,但由於列車的運量和人口增長仍相距甚遠,觸目驚心的“印度式扒火車”情景在此頻頻上演。同時,鐵路是融合印度人語言、文化和宗教,造就今時今日印度獨特風情的重要一環。盧琛以一趟火車之旅,體驗鐵路對於印度的非凡意義。



縱然孟買正在綻放國際大都市的風采,那裡卻有約一半的市民居住在貧民窟。遍佈城市的近兩千個貧民窟中,以全亞洲最大的“達拉維”最為人知曉。它除了是一百多萬人的棲身之所外,也被喻為窮人自創經濟特區。盧琛走入“達拉維”的街頭巷尾,重新認識這個看似雜亂無章,實爲窮人有條不紊爲生活拼搏的家園,窺探其如何以獨特的方式,推動著印度城市化進程。



此外,盧琛親臨“達巴瓦拉”和露天洗衣場這兩項百年傳統行業的現場,也不忘造訪民居感受他們生活最真實的面貌。攝製隊帶你穿梭孟買,一同探尋活力無窮的印度。




Following the rapid development of India in recent years, it is predicted to be the third largest economy in the world by 2024. Meanwhile in this particular country, the extreme contrast between the poor and rich is distinctively shown from the side-by-side existence of slums and modern cosmopolitan buildings. In the programme, host Lu Chen visits Mumbai, the most significant microcosm of India’s development to discover the boundless energy of this mysterious ancient land.



Being the first country in Asia to own a train, railway remains the most important mean of transportation in India today. The history of rail transport has also played an important role in shaping the Indian cultures. However, with the population density continues to surpass the carrying capacity, the terrifying scene of train surfing is still very common here. Let Lu Chen show you some of its truest facts through a train ride around Mumbai.



Despite the fact that Mumbai is showing the charms of a vibrant metropolis, half of its citizens are actually residing in slums. Among the 2000 slums that spread all over the city, Dharavi, Asia’s largest slum is definitely the one that most known in the world. Apart from serving as a shelter for a million residents there, Dharavi is also a hub of small-scale industries initiated by the poor. Inside its seemingly disorganized exteriors, there is in fact a well arranged environment for the poor to work for their lives. Lu Chen walks through the streets and lanes of Dharavi to learn more about this slum and its inseparable connection with the urbanization of Mumbai.



What’s more, Lu Chen visits the sites of two iconic traditional industries in Mumbai, Dabbawala and open air laundromat before she drops by some residences to get a sense of the living condition of the locals. Here you will discover the energetic sides of this incredible nation.
