Slum resilience literature focuses on disasters such as flooding, or food insecurity, which residents have endured, but does not explicitly address 'why' or 'how' residents with modest resources fight for rebuilding or protecting their community. Drawing on the concept of social capital, this chapter explores these questions in the Pedda Jalaripeta slum of Visakhapatnam, India. Sharing professional and cultural practices using the key places and spaces in Pedda Jalaripeta has been important in building bonding and bridging capital. The chapter explains the resilience scholarship by highlighting lived experiences of community members and their active engagement in developing and enhancing community resilience despite their vulnerable social and spatial position. It discusses theoretical framework for discussing 'slum resilience'. The chapter focuses on two examples, recovery and developing resilience after a major fire, and adaptation and enhancing resilience in anticipation of threats imposed by tourism development and gentrification.
