Mumbai - Nayantara, 'As I saw the chilling pictures of thousands of migrantlabourers of our country, walking miles in the burning heat to reach the security of their homes; I was reminded of a book called BehindTheBeautifulForevers by KatherineBoo , that I had read 6 years ago on my parents's recommendation. Even back then, I knew that I led a privileged life and should be grateful for all the things I had. But only after reading this book, did I actually understand the depth and extent of my privilege. The book is based on the interpretations of true events by an American woman who embedded herself with the residents of the Annawadi slums near Mumbai airport. The book chronicles the desperate and fierce life struggles of the slum dwellers living there with the focus on 3 teenagers who have grown up in the slums. In a heart wrenching and shocking turn of events one of the them, Abdul is accused of a crime he did not commit.

In this brilliant, breathtaking book by Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. As India starts to prosper, the residents of Annawadi are electric with hope. Meanwhile Asha, a woman of formidable ambition, has identified a shadier route to the middle class. And even the poorest children, like the young thief Kalu, feel themselves inching closer to their dreams.
