Biographies: Portaits of Generosity

A Thousand Suns
Much of the biographical information on this site originates from Chapter 15 of A Thousand Suns. Half of the royalties of this book go directly to needy causes in Calcutta.

The City of Joy Aid provides funding for a variety of projects in and around Calcutta, but funding alone does not cure a leprosy patient or help a child learn to read.

The organization finances grass roots efforts headed by people who live in the community. These individuals have made it their life's work to assist the underprivileged people living in Calcutta's slums and in poor areas of rural Bengal. Those associated with this crusade come from a variety of backgrounds, from a renowned French author to a British reverend and a former Muslim terrorist. Please read their stories and share in the joy they have helped create.
