Sabina stands on the roof of one of the shacks in the slum where she lives holding up a brightly coloured scarf..Sabina is 9 years old and lives with her parents and brother in a slum in Delhi. Her father is a rickshaw driver and the family has very little money. The slum where they live is dirty and smelly since there are thousands of people living in a very confined space. "I am always wearing the second hand clothes of my nieces. Everything is dirty and dingy. I dream of beautiful dresses which would make me look like a movie star and I would be able to shine and dance through the slum. Everyone would think that I'm the most beautiful girl in Delhi."..
