What any process of beautification does is that it makes the city available for use for only one kind of people. It segregates the space and in Mumbai, where land is a contentious issue, any time one section of the population begins accessing, using or enjoying a particular space, it infringes on the rights of another section that was using it earlier.
A flyover captures well the Indian idea of success. It elevates you above others and hides poverty and suffering, everything thought undesirable.
