Available on amazon.com and smashwords.com ,The traveling lite series is a compilation of travel insights from around the world. As it takes you through winding roads and moving trains, from the wine country in Italy to the slums of Mumbai, it focuses your attention to life’s psychological journey, and the path to easing the burden we bear through introspection and a change of perspective. With a range of topics from children in the street to gender politics, and laughter in the rain to dancing Argentine tango, the author takes the everyday occurrences in life and looks at them through a set of filters that are keenly attuned to the minute details that escape the average eye.
Reviews on: Children of the Street
I am impressed with this piece on several levels. I like your observations, and the way you turn these observations into social theory and commentary. While seeming to form an attachment for the girls, you somehow banish that with academic postulation. But, I believe you want me, the reader, to see through your posturing, because you really feel something for these girls who are not, after all, mere subjects for study, human beings ‘uneducated’ and of ‘reduced options’.
You have a marvelous vocabulary, but I wonder if you might have laid on the adverbs and adjectives a bit thick. Forgive me, this probably just reflects my preference for less adorned prose. I really enjoyed the thought-provoking nature of this piece.

This is very well written, you did an excellent job writing this story where you see the street child playing her trade well. So sad when innocence is lost quickly.

I’m sympathetic with the plight of the poverty stricken regardless of what circumstances put them there. …..When I was a youngster, jobs were not difficult to come by. Society, for the most part, expected youngster to start in an entry-level job and work their way up. I found the system worked well for those willing to labor hard and be productive.
Unfortunately, today greed and evil seem to be the underlying motives of too many of our public servants. Exploiting the poor is a worldwide problem for which I have no solution.
You give the reader much to consider.
