As the Indian economy booms, the residents of Annawadi, a slum near Mumbai airport, are electric with hope. Then Abdul, a teenaged garbage sorter, is falsely accused in a shocking tragedy; a terrorist attack and a global recession rock Mumbai ; and suppressed tensions over religion, caste, sex, and economic envy erupt brutally. 

In this beautifully written, rigorously researched book, the impact of poverty, inequality, corruption and global change is made human through breathtaking, sometimes heartbreaking, stories that will stay with you forever.
