Books


Hola everyone! Here's where you can find details regarding my published children'sbooks. Of course, I've written several other stories that I hope will find a publisher some day. Until then, hope you'll enjoy these and spread the word so many more children can read them. After all, a writer wants nothing more than being read by more and more readers across the world :)

A group of friends have a pleasant surprise when they enter an abandoned cinema hall in the jungle. And they don't need tickets to enter!

The story was written as part of the 'Retell, Remix, Rejoice' contest held by Pratham Books where the idea was to take a given set of illustrations and come up with a unique story by mixing them up. 'The Jungle Cinema' won the first place in the contest. Yeaaah!!
