Indagare's Melissa Biggs Bradley
“To me, India’s real piercing beauty lies in the constant flowering of hope or moments of resilience that emerge in brutality and desperation. Taking a Salaam Baalak City Walk, led by a runaway who is on the road to a better life, is a way to experience the essence of India."
