Wahid's Mobile bookstore

Wahid's Mobile bookstore Amidst the smog and blaring horns of Mumbai, 9 year old Wahid sells books to support his family. Unable to read, yet dreaming of becoming a doctor, his story paints a moving picture of India today.

Recommending and selling foreign books while dexterously evading the frantic pace of Mumbai's traffic ensures that a Mobile Bookseller is probably the most dangerous paper-route in the world. Yet Wahid's character shines through the hustle and bustle; an admirer of Obama, Wahid: "wants to do good for everyone" and become a doctor for villagers normally given "fake medicines". Says as much about modern India as man's insatiable thirst for knowledge.
