Half of humanity now lives in a city, and the United Nations has predicted that 70 per cent of the world's population will reside in urban areas by 2050. Across the developing world, cities gain an average of five million residents every month.

India alone has 48 cities with a population of over one million. The writer Suketu Mehta has described Mumbai - where one can find a million people in a single square mile, where two million residents lack access to latrines, and where the air has ten times the maximum permissible levels of lead - as the 'Maximum City': 

'Bombay is the biggest city on the planet of a race of city dwellers', he wrote. 'Bombay is the future of urban civilization on the planet. God help us.'

Thank you for the read. Honestly you covered the topic and broadly examined all areas. If i was to write this i would have done a few things differently myself but you have definitely inspired me to get into the world of blogging:)
