About the author: Sudha Murty was born in in Shiggaon in north Karnataka. A prolific writer in English and Kannada, she has written nine novels, four technical books, three travelogues, one collection of short stories, three collections of non-fiction pieces and two books for children.
Her books have been translated into all the major Indian languages and have sold over three lakh copies around the country. She was the recipient of the R. My thoughts on the book: I borrowed this book from the library just about the same time I was delving into a literary fiction, so after that, this came as a breath of fresh air, to refresh my mind.
This brought back memories of visits to my native place, and of stories that my grandmother used to tell me too, sort of a bittersweet experience. This book has those innocence filled stories that just sound in place. It might as well be you in the place of Raghu or Meenu, and your grandmother instead of Ajji, the stories might seem familiar in their wisdom. The morals are right, and the illustrations well done. It could double up as a coloring book for the kids, as well as a refreshing change of perspective and weight of reading for you.
