Today I present my friends from the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) stretch in south Delhi. These four are a part of a larger group that sell magazines and books to the people stuck in never ending traffic jams or those waiting for a few minutes at the traffic signal. I have a special bond with them as these guys know just the magazine that I want to read and bring me the latest issues of the ones I desire. The way they recommend books, it almost feels like they have read the selection themselves. This too is India where illiteracy and child labour is rampant and ironically it is books that help these kids survive.
