Dharavi clothes factory ironers

These men are ironing out the embroidere seams before they are sewn on to clothes for export around the world. This is a clothes factory started by a tailor who came to Dharavi slum years ago with just a Singer sewing machine, and now employs 600 people. He is in some senses a 'real' slumdog millionaire. He told George he hasn't laid off any workers yet even though his business is down by 40% due to the global economic downturn.
