I am Vrindha,                                                  Less known to the outer world,                    A girl of Dharavi…

Born to the poorest of the poor,                    Raised close to a city,                                    Far to its virtues,               

Facing  the life’s realities is my everyday task ,

Getting up early every morning not to figure out my future at school ,     

But to find my way to work,               

The hard day’s labour doesn’t trouble me much,                 

But the thought  that life remains the same troubles me the most,

Everything I go to sleep watching the rocking city Mumbai

Lighted in life and opportunities in plethora,

I hope some day I would discover a new me,                   

 And carve out a way for the world to look at me in appreciation.
