Ten-year-old Chamdi has rarely ventured outside his orphanage and entertains a fantasy of what Bombay is like beyond its garden walls – a paradise he calls Kahunsha, "the city of no sadness." He runs away to search for his long-lost father and finds himself thrust into chaos. Moving, poignant, and wonderfully rich in the sights and sounds of Bombay, this novel is the story of Chamdi's struggle for survival on the city's dangerous streets.
