Angels by the Murky River: Collecting Stories of Unheard Lives
by Shivaji Das

Explore the immense diversity of ordinary people—they are the homeless people in Mumbai and Seoul, ageing anarchists in Melbourne, poverty-stricken diamond miners in Indonesia, all-renouncing monks in the material city of Singapore, farmers-turned-painters in Morocco and China, an elderly couple who scribble love poems on walls of small-town China while not daring to meet each other, Filipino women boxers and beauty pageants, and a group of migratory mother-in-laws, to name a few.

This book will make you question, WHAT MAKES US HUMAN?
