This story is real, or very close to real. Descriptions of the lives of people in Annawadi were written in great, believable detail. In one way, the story makes you acknowledge just how much you have and how fortunate you are. In another way, it makes you feel inferior, of the amount of awareness and perseverance that the people in Annawadi have despite corruption, greed, and the weight of the caste system. This is a must read.
I loved that Anthony Bourdain narrated it himself - it wouldn't have been enjoyable otherwise. His performance was excellent.
His tone, his sarcasm, his non-regional specific diction.
Privilege, Rebellion, Redemption, Mastery, Reflection.
