Poverty is a scary thing and that too in India. It haunts you forever no matter you made efforts and proved to be lucky enough to come out of it! It continues to scare you!

Boo's work appears to be sensitively shared observations and anecdotal sharing... Ah.. she's married to Sunil Khilnani.. the outlook columnist.. that is news.. maybe that explains the extra-attention Outlook is bestowing on her..

This kind of journalism is a real labour of love. Perhaps another Pulitzer may be in the offing.

The passion and integrity of ones chosen craft shows. Anyways, this trait probably exists much more in the developed world as the "fear of falling" is not so intense and there is a state safety net to protect from the fall being into the abyss. For us in our present state of development, the "fear of falling" is very intense because the fall could be very fast and deep into a cesspoll and in addition there is the attraction of the shining temples of consumerism but not the disposable income to indulge in it whenever the heart desires (except for the few).
