Brett Potter HST 104 Section 002 Yixin Chen 27 November 2012 The Poverty of Annawadi as seen in Behind the Beautiful Forevers The city of Mumbai has seen much growth in the past years. A string of elegant hotels have been set up for travelers and high-class business men. An ever growing, top of the line airport has been built for those coming in and out of the country. From the outside, Mumbai seems to have taken a liking to being internationally integrated with the rest of world, otherwise known as globalization. This is not the case, however; as seen in Katherine Boo’s novel Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, Death, and Hope in a Mumbai Undercity. This novel is set in a slum right next to the Mumbai International Airport called

From the 31 Rules of Courtly Love, I agree strongly with rule 31. It states Nothing forbids one woman being loved by two men or one man by two women. Equally important there are many examples displayed of this type of love all over. For instance the television show Love and Hip Hop Atlanta that is broadcasted on VH1, it's one man and two women. Another example includes Sister Wives that broadcasts on TLC which is a television show that involves one man and five wives. However, the movie Twilight also has a love triangle with two men and one woman. Additionally, the most accepted are in a common religion of Muslims, one man, and up to four wives. This form of Courtly Love is now a practice that is showcased to the world in a manner of explanation.
Katherine Boo’s implicit purpose for writing Behind the Beautiful Forevers was to give the reader an inside look at a day in the life of an individual living within a slum of Mumbai. The residents of the Mumbai slum, Annawadi, live upon piles of waste where there is minimal opportunity

If any objections had been raised regarding his marriage to Rose, Alyn had not been made aware of them, and so as the afternoon drew on, the two of them stood before the doors of the small wooden church, Rose on the left and Alyn on the right. Father Twain stood before them just outside the doors, paid for the marriage with a loan from Lord Porter and now garbed in his priestly vestments, a gray ankle-length tunic called an alb, with sleeveless brown chasuble overtop and wheat-brown stole around his shoulders.
Chapter One Larissa Jordan was a peppy young girl, especially for one who grew up on the Black Isles of Doracha. As a child, she had never been told of the island's’ dark history, nor had she been told of the reasons why families were forced to move away from the mainlands and onto the Isles. And what you don’t know can’t hurt you. At least, that’s what Larissa’s parents believed; and for twelve years, twelve blissfully peaceful years, they appeared to be correct.
