Marie Balustradeabout this book: After 12 years of living in India and working as a development worker in Asia, I witnessed the darker side of poverty that drove people to do unimaginable things. Without knowing it at the time, these years became the foundation of the book, and my experiences were the fountain of knowledge channelled through the characters. The setting and the social framework surrounding the fictional characters is true and the purpose of Wings At Dawn is to draw attention to the plight of the children who have fallen victims to the evil clutches of greed and perversion. Being aware of the issues is the first step towards protecting them, even though we cannot rescue each and every one.
Translating the ugly reality of the research into a palatable work of fiction was a monumental task that took several months. Knowing the country and the culture where the book is set is the greatest advantage as an author. Substance is as important as quality, otherwise a great injustice is done to the cause.
