for those of us who are interested in india & it's history , traditions , culture & india in general I came across a book titled " behind the beautiful forevers ". a book written by an American investigative journalist who has documented the lives of people in poverty. this book tells the dramatic stories of families striving toward a better life in a present day slum of Mumbai in the shadows of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport ( chhatrapati shivaji international airport ). the book has won several awards , including the national book award & the los angeles times book prize among others , it was also adapted into a play in 2014 . as far as I'm concerned this brilliant , breathtaking non - fiction book should be on every indiaphiles bookshelf . the website for the book is , www.behindthebeautifulforevers.com with it's subject matter of poverty & it's meticulous research & her gift for sympathy , " behind the beautiful forevers " is a small masterpiece of documentary storytelling .
" behind the beautiful forevers ",mmm. Written by an American journalist who documented the lives of indian people in poverty. Seems very interesting, I always have a desire to know how people manage to struggle or get out of poverty in developing countries. Is a process that takes time for sure, but with enough economic freedom some of them probably will become the entrepeneurs and business people of tomorrow. I support them.
The domain name is too large and inane. The owner didn't give it enough thought or just don't give a damn about internet traffic or exposure. Type of Journalist that relies on tradicional media.
The title makes the book sound lovely. I deeply enjoy both reading and history. I am sad to say I know very little about Indian history. I may consider getting this book so I can learn some new things! Thank you for sharing!
