did arson destroy the shantytown?

The fire that roared through Garib Nagar on Friday, rendering slumdog millionaire star Rubina Ali and 750 of her neighbors homeless, may have been deliberately set, United News of India reports. The mostly-Muslim shantytown was adjacent to the Bandra train station along the Western Express Railway.

Reading your blog, I'm reminded of the work of the Jakarta-based artists Ken Pattern:

Ken has spent the last 20 years documenting Jakarta's disappearing kampungs. Beautiful work.
