In five-star hotels on Mumbai's seafront, children of the rich squeal
joyfully as they play hide and seek.

Nearby, at the National Theatre for the Performing Arts, people arrive for
the Mumbai Literary Festival: famous authors and notables drawn from
India's Raj class. They step deftly over a woman lying across the pavement,
her birch brooms laid out for sale, her two children silhouettes in a
banyan tree that is their home.


“Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity’s
original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man
Under Socialism

“The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
