Meticulous student, obedient daughter, non-complaining and well-adjusted, young Uma was the good child we all want in our lives. I can only imagine the kind of pride her parents must have felt in her.
I heard Uma first at a closed door roundtable, articulating the reality of a woman who leaves the security of her extremely poor home for ambition, love or livelihood. Almost always, she is betrayed. Almost always by men & women she trusts in attempt for a better life.
