From Amazon: Coolie portrays the picaresque adventures of Munoo, a young boy forced to leave his hill village to fend for himself and discover the world. His journey takes him far from home to towns and cities, to Bombay and Simla, sweating as servant, factory-worker and rickshaw driver. It is a fight for the survival that illuminates, with raw immediacy, the grim fate of the masses in pre-Partition India.


Everybody Loves a Good Drought

By P. Sainath

Recommended by Noora Health

From Amazon: Acclaimed across the world, prescribed in over 100 universities and colleges, Everybody Loves a Good Drought is the established classic on rural poverty in India. Twenty years after publication, it remains unsurpassed in the scope and depth of reportage, providing an intimate view of the daily struggles of the poor and the efforts, often ludicrous, made to uplift them. An illuminating introduction accompanying this twentieth-anniversary edition reveals, alarmingly, how a large section of India continues to suffer in the name of development so that a small percentage may prosper. Besides exposing chronic misgovernance, it is also a devastating comment on the media’s failure to speak for the voiceless.


Mirch Masala

Recommended by Noora Health: Based on a short story by Chunilal Madia, Mirch Masala is a story about oppression of a subedar on a village in pre-Independence Rann of Kutch; of a village chief on his wife and other young women in the village; of a father on his young daughter; and of the colonial system on a poor nation and its people.

Do Bigha Zamin

From Noora Health: It has been 68 years since Bimal Roy’s classic was released and what is depicted of Indian farmers then is as true today as it was just after Independence. Do Bigha

Zamin is about a poor farmer who gets entangled in the web of a zamindar’s debt when he

refuses to sell his small land holding.
