Chamdi is ten years old and has lived cloistered in a Bombay orphanage all his life. When he hears the orphanage is closing he decides to go and search for his father out in the city, a city he has never been. Although he is met with ugly reality he never loses sight of Kahunsha, the magical place he has envisioned where all is colour and light. This is an easy read but leaves you with a clear picture of the poverty, violence and desparation Chamdi finds. Life there is hard.
