Titahari ka Bachcha
These stories are unheard. We can hear them but we have not heard. Likewise, their writers are unheard, unseen. One of them is a rag-picker. Someone picks chironji, mahua in the forest. There family survives on their income. Take off the lens of sympathy or pity to meet them, so you can meet as equals. Then you will see their attitude towards life, their love for life and their perspective. You may not work for years, yet you wouldn’t have to worry about food…rid yourself of this secure envelop to meet these writers. See their ups and downs, life swinging on the branches.
This book is illustrated by a young artist Bhargav Kulkarni. These illustrations would not only help to understand their lifeworld but you would also recognize yourself. A glimpse of our life can be seen in these illustrations.
