'The writing in the anthology is by turn tortured and beautiful as writers show us the people behind stereotypes. Author Sonia Faleiro, told me in an interview that she worked months to report and write her harrowing story "Maarne Ka, Bhagane Ka", ("Beat them, kick them out"), profiling Savita, a streetwalker bludgeoned by railway police for distributing protection to her coworkers in the trade that gives them "frail armour against destitution".'
