(pub. 2/12)

Next to the luxury hotels in Mumbai live thousands of Indians in the Annawadi slums.  This is a revealing portrait of individuals trying to move ahead amidst corruption and a lack of education and opportunity.  Moving stories of survival in what seems a hopeless environment are contained in this excellent piece of investigative journalism.
