Beach slums. This is what the slums on the coast of Chennai and on the railway and highway roadsides of Delhi and Chennai look like as well. Living conditions like these (exposure to elements, proximity to ocean) are the reason so many people died in the 2004 tsunami in India (a result of which the rock barrier was likely built).
