Abandoned on the Mumbai railways, Ajay has grown up with nothing but a burning wish to be a journalist.

Finding an abandoned printing press, he and his friends Saif, Vinod, Yasmin and Jai create their own newspaper: The Mumbai Sun.

...and justice for all

a fantastic story, with a wonderful narration. all the sights and smells of modern day Mumbai captured in this thrilling tale.
this story should be read by readers young and old, as it captures many issues and injustices of modern day Mumbai and seamlessly relates them to the UK, U.S and everywhere else. the characters are real and the villains could put Mrs Coulter and professor umbridge to shame. I look forward to more of Ajay's exploits. Ajay and the Mumbai sun really shows Mumbai and the rest of the world how the media can be used for good but how can also be used for profit and personal gain. this story should have a place in English lessons around the UK, to promote the true power of story telling
