[Behind the Beautiful Forevers]
In chapter 3 “Sunil” of Behind the Beautiful Forevers, Katherine Boo gives readers insight into the life of Sunil, a garbage collector in Annawadi. She discusses his home life, his upbringing in an orphanage, and his perception of other garbage collectors.
Regarding Airport Road, Boo writes “For waste-pickers, the road where air cargo was loaded and unloaded was the most profitable, and therefore competitive, part of the airport. Crammed with trucks, truck bays, overflowing dumpsters, and small food joints, the place was every week more overrun by scavengers” (85).
