Following the lives of children into orphanages and through the streets and slums of India—where millions of them live without families—this account pulls a significant amount of research from the infamous Dharavi slum of Mumbai, where many of the scenes for the Oscar–winning film Slumdog Millionaire were shot. Here, more than a million people live on its 500 acres of former swampland surrounded by luxury high-rise condominiums. Yet this is a book filled with hope, telling the story of those with huge hearts and individuals from around the globe standing up to create a wave of conscious steps toward a better planet and better life for these 25 million Indian children.

Book Description:

"I `accidentally' opened the first chapter of your book and was not able to stop! Not only did it give me goosebumps and left me feeling inspired, but it literally made me want to buy a ticket to India and go and see it for myself. You are a true inspiration!"

From the Publisher:

Shelley Seale's narrative non-fiction book follows the lives of just such children as those brought to life in the movie Slumdog Millionaire. The Weight of Silence: Invisible Children of India depicts Seale's journey into orphanages and through the streets and slums of India where millions of innocent children live without families. During her three years of writing The Weight of Silence, Seale has befriended and told the stories of many such children - and has born witness to their struggles first hand.
