?What was the inspiration behind the creation of this book??
In 1991, Shilpi spent a summer as a volunteer in an Indian orphanage and this is where she met a little orphan girl, three years old, named Yashoda. Shilpi said even though they couldn?t communicate because of the language barrier, they still found ways to understand each other and they soon became inseparable. Yashoda loved dancing while listening to Shilpi?s Sony walkman. Years later, remembering when she already has her own daughters, she realized that the little orphan should be grown up by then, a woman of twenty-one, might have her own family, or not. She wondered what her fate would have been in a country that used ultra sounds and safer abortions to kill daughters in the womb. She wondered how the little orphan girls she?d left when she was nineteen in 1991 could have fared in India when they leave the orphanage at the age of sixteen.
