“the story is told in a very insightful way to create love, affection and respect”

Kosa,

This is another splendid example of your genius way of narrating a story using marvellous illustrations and extremely simple language. Your narration is mesmerizing and always makes a reader want to continue reading even after the last page. The topic is extremely pertinent and the story is told in a very insightful way to create love, affection and respect for not just animals but also towards other’s convictions. It also teaches values such as forgiveness and compassion in a very subtle manner. I also very much love the ending where the smallest rabbit talks about hope.

I have two boys, 4 and 2 yrs old and can’t wait to hold this book in hand, read it to them and listen to all the questions my older one has at the end.

I think books of this caliper capturing tales from rich Indian heritage are extremely rare and feel that many more books like this need to be written. It is my utmost pleasure to endorse this book and hopefully you will continue to create many more of these wonders in coming years.

Thank you for the opportunity to preview the book before its release. Please let me know if I can do anything else.

Sincerely,
Vishal

“This is a beautiful retelling of a Vedic classic. Anyone interested in the spiritual dimensions of animal activism will enjoy this book immensely. The illustrations perfectly capture the mood of the storyline and will help any child or parent embrace the entire sphere of spiritual equality.”
