While reading Behind the Beautiful Forevers, I felt a strong connection to the girl who strived to be Annawadi’s first college graduate. Annawadi is an extremely poor slum located near the Mumbai international airport in India. Manju Waghekar, a teenager living in the slum, had extremely high hopes for her future. She did not want to be stuck living in poverty for her life with her over-ambitious, politically driven mother, Asha. Manju spent her days studying for her college exams, and her nights teaching in a free of charge school for young children.
Patel mentions a story of visit to his grandmother in India. He says that he woke up one morning and found a person sitting on his grandmother’s sofa. When he asked whom this person was, his grandmother said, “I don’t know her real name. She is getting abused at home. We will keep her safe” (Patel 99). This is how he learned that his grandmother had been a helping woman for forty years by hiding them in her home. She helped people in many ways, by paying for the travel of those who wanted to live with family in other parts of India. Sometimes she sent those who wanted to build an education to school. Others stayed in her home until they got married and started their own families. Patel was very moved by these stories and even more so when he
It is a tale of bickering wives, demurring husbands, kitty parties, Irani tea houses, paanwallas and cigarettewallas, and everything one needs to understand life at the bottom of the middle class in an Indian city.
“Please don’t play your games with a helpless poor girl” declared Dhowli. The Misra boy leaned in closer to her replying, “I’m not playing games.” Dhowli then shouted back “ You’ll leave after you tire of the game, and what will become of me? Am I to be like Jhale? No, deota, not that.” (238). I’m hesitate to keep reading after this line thinking to myself how I feel sorry for Dhowli and who she is going to become since getting pregnant with a Misra boy who is dominant in the caste system. Dhowli creates an ambitious, courageous, and philosophical figure in the short story “Dhowli” by Mashasweta Devi. In the short story the caste system is well defined showing of social stratification of two opposite levels of the social chain in India. To an American reader the foreignness of how India treats single mothers is how this short story stands out.
The immensely heart-throbbing and extremely thought provoking book, Sold, tells the story of a young girl, Lakshmi, who was sold into sexual slavery in India, unintentionally. The story takes place in Nepal where Lakshmi lives with her mother, stepfather, and little brother; times are hard and they have very little. They live in a hut with a mud roof that drips during the raining season, they only have a small portion of land to grow on which is their main source of food, and Lakshmi's stepfather does not work and spends most of their income on himself. For the most part they are able to struggle through and make ends meet, but there comes a time when that’s just not enough anymore. With much reluctance from her mother, Lakshmi and her stepfather agree that she will go work in the city as a maid and send back her earnings for the rest of her family. After leaving her small town and travelling with a lady she is told to call “Auntie”, Lakshmi starts to question “Auntie”s real endeavours with her. When “Auntie” leaves her with a strange man who takes her over the border into India and leaves her at a questionable looking house,

“Although I don’t like being the centre of attention, I have to put myself out there for work purposes – to talk to people, to show them my work, and to pitch ideas,” she revealed before adding that, “Another challenge of setting up my business is the financial prospect. I don't have a stable income but what I do get is more time for myself and flexibility in choosing what I want to do. Besides, the best part in working for yourself is that you get to grow together with your own company.”
