The Slum Queen
A fascinating childhood and travel around the country in her early years helped Rouble Nagi inculcate the values that she embodies today. An artist at heart, Nagi pens down her experiences of her childhood and shares the unique perspective she developed in her growing years.
Is art for art sake only? Nagi documents the journey of her ‘Misaal India’ campaign. Taking birth in a Mumbai slum, the campaign gradually embraced its colorful walls and is marching towards a brighter future. Several workshops and skill centers that have been started in the slums and villages across India that she has worked in as part of her team’s Misaal India campaign and how their inhabitants are seeing their dreams being fulfilled- the book documents all.
The book is an ode to all those who dream to change, to uplift the not-so-fortunate ones. It entails the journey of a vision that Nagi has, about an India where everyone in skilled enough to earn their own bread and have their talents recognized. Both Nagi and her team encourage those willing to join them and the book also provides a blueprint to those who venture to start something of their own.
