Green Kweezzzes!

Yes, the monsoon is here and you have bhajjis and bondas in your head. We understand. We have them too.

Which is why, this is the perfect time for you to stop working so hard and come kweezzz with us on Twitter! We'll even give you a noble reason for doing this: you will be saving the planet!

It's time for the Tulika Kweezzz, people, and this time, we're going to have not one, not two, but TWO kweezzes! Yes, just as two bhajjis are better than one, two kweezzzes are better than one. We know you agree.

The first week of July is celebrated as Vanamahotsava Week. Moreover, July 3rd is International Plastic Free Day. We, at Tulika, thought it was a great time to host our green kweezzes- one on July 1st and the other on July 8th- to mark the importance of this week. We were happy to discover how many of our books across our series raise questions in subtle and simple ways about our relationship with the environment and the need to preserve our natural heritage. Through different perspectives, they share a common respect for communities who embrace sustainable ways of living. (Greenhorns who haven't seen them yet, look here right now.)

Got it, beloved bonda-eating brethren? Nope? Leave us a comment and we'll explain more!

P.S: If you really didn't understand ANY of this and you really don't want to participate in all this but just really want the books, you may be pleased to know that we're extending the deadline for our June offer to the 8th of July. Really. Mail us at and be at peace.

P.P.S: We really wish you'd kweezzz though. Bye bye.
