Book Description

I can’t buy a ticket, but I need to get on this train… Chandrasekhar waits for a job and dreams of being back home with a classmate he’s in love with. Aruna had lost a slipper, and it was her only pair. Balu wishes he could trade his jackhammer for a poetry book. Sadia and her son are sleeping beside their handmade dolls, wondering what the future holds. Anjanamma makes up a story to soothe the relentless sting of mosquitoes. Nagaraju sightlessly navigates the chaos of a train station and puts out a plea to the universe. Subuhi Jiwani traces six uncertain journeys from Andhra Pradesh to Kochi, where migrants were in search of work, survival, and belonging.
