Reader, we've chosen them. The ones who will get the review copies of Aajoba are.....Rhoda, Sandhya and Arundhati. Great work, ladies. Here's the slideshow to remind you what it's all about and a lovely review that Rachna spontaneously sent us after reading the book (and which we coaxed her to make public) That's all.
I am proudly sharing the fact that I cried a lot this morning after reading a children's book - Aajoba! What an amazing project!
Since I did not have the good fortune of meeting/ knowing either of my grandfathers (my parents married very late), I do not miss an opportunity for my children to meet not just my husband's and my parents but also our aunts and uncles.
I have to thank the "creator" of ajoba for suggesting a unique way of ever lasting communication that can be followed by many families, like mine. It is never too late to think about what we will leave behind - since grandparents will always be special for their grand children.
I am so sure the author's grandfather is so proud of her, as she tries to guess in the book!
For all at Tulika - thank you for giving talented Indians a platform to showcase their loves and passions and at the same time sharing their hopes and dreams with so many readers!
