This book is an attempt to share that expansive experience, through the limited medium of words and pictures. Writing it restored our faith in humanity. We can be happy, we can be hopeful, we can be enterprising – no matter where we are. The question is – are you? If Dharavi can, so can I. This is what the author’s note concludes. Yes, we are talking about one of the largest slums in the world – Dharavi. We once again welcome Rashmi Bansal in the Book Reviews Program, along with Deepak Gandhi and Dee Gandhi, for a very special book called Poor Little Rich Slum – what we saw in Dharavi and why it matters. Curious to know about this community? Read below to know what the book offers.
10 copies of this book to be given away for review.
Overview of the Book
One little two little three little Indians, four little five little six little Indians, seven little eight little nine little Indians… One million little Indian entrepreneurs.
These are the stories of the little people who make up the Big Idea of Dharavi.
A slum of energy, enterprise and hope.
Where every hand is busy, every head held high.
Where people could be miserable but choose to be happy.
A choice each of us can make.
