Title: Chongu's Cherante
Description: This is a story about Chongu (A girl child) who sees the Millipede for the first time. She is thrilled how the Millipede responds to touch. She finds it strange how the small creature has so many legs to carry its small weight. And then the child relates the shape of the curled Millipede to everything around her. The story uses words from the language "Tulu" native to Udupi and Mangalore. Today as English steals many our local languages, the book is an attempt to include "soulful indigenous words" to hear and to dear us. Written by Shwetha Bhat Illustrated by Samidha Gunjal

Title: Gope and Meera...A Migration Story
Description: “Why do people migrate?” Nadia asks her grandparents one evening. Their answer takes Anoushka, Nadia and Tarun on a journey back in time to Sindh, (now Pakistan), through the story of Gope and Meera. Best of friends, Gope and Meera laugh, play and celebrate India’s Independence in August 1947. Soon after, however, Gope and Meera learn that India has been split into two and realise that they are now living on the wrong side of the border. As refugees, their lives are turned upside down during the chaos following the Partition of India and they are separated forever…or so it would seem. ​ Beautiful and heartwarming, Gope and Meera – A Migration Story is a tale about a cherished homeland reluctantly left behind and why the Hindu Sindhi community is scattered across the world today. It is a tale of tragic loss, determined hope, preserved culture and spirited victory that will captivate readers of all ages. Written by Ritu Hemanani Illustrated by Samidha Gunjal
