    Sometimes the only way is escape. Is it so?

    COVER - Simple and attractive. Speaks volumes. The figure of two young girls holding hands and moving as if on flight as well as the tagline “Sometimes the only way is escape” give an insight into the story.


    Storyline – Relevant given the fact that there are still some states/ places in India where child marriage,female foeticide, denial of formal education to girls and cruelty to widows are rampant. The story is an expression of the desires of the female race shackled within the four...

    Emotion, action, love, respect, guts and glory: All wrapped in one amazing story

    'Bubble Wrap' is an awesome read and takes you to another world which is nothing but a bitter truth of our society. More so when you live in 'Rokhagadh' part of the country. I got fascinated with Krishna's way of thinking, wish all of us can have same child like careless attitude towards various things in life. Gudiya makes you think about the treatment given to survivors of various tragedies, rather than offering emotional support, one tends to pull them down. Ending was little painful and f...
