Madonna tours slum with Aussie author
June, 02nd 2008

POP icon Madonna walked through narrow lanes in a slum and visited a flea market in India's financial capital during a holiday with her family.

Madonna, her film director husband Guy Ritchie and their three children arrived in Mumbai this morning by chartered plane from the historic city of Udaipur in western India, where they had spent New Year's Eve.

The 49-year-old singer was accompanied on her tour of Mumbai's crowded Ambedkar Nagar slums by Australian author Gregory Roberts, whose bestselling autobiographical novel Shantaram is set in Mumbai.

Dressed in a black T-shirt, jeans and jacket, the pop star, her husband and bodyguards ambled through the narrow lanes. Slum residents showered rose petals on Madonna to welcome her, even though few knew who the celebrity was.

Madonna then stopped for a roadside meal of a local delicacy called misal pav - bread and spicy white peas - at a budget restaurant with Roberts, a convicted bank robber who has made Mumbai his home.

The pop star also stopped by at the well-known Chor Bazaar flea market, but did not buy anything.
Madonna and her family spent nearly a week in the desert state of Rajasthan, where they went for horse-riding trips and kite-flying.
