Wahid’s Mobile Book Store
Amidst the traffic, smog, blaring horns and careening commuters that crowd the intersections of Mumbai, India, is Wahid, a 9-year old mobile bookseller. While he does not read English, he deftly weaves in and around the cars selling international best sellers, haggling over the price and recommending books to patrons sitting in their air-conditioned cars. It’s a dangerous “paper route”, but it provides his family of six with the extra income they need to survive in their one-room slum.
