Details: In this story of three cousins, Vinod Kumar Shukla has introduced the meagre material culture of Chhatisgarh villages illuminated by Yasi, Rasa and Ta's sense of wonder about their parents' existence and the world at large. It is a children's book because the narrative is simple. It is a poet's book because each object - chappal, ghada, katori, phugga - seems more than itself, full of primal sounds and dipped in the mystery of 'being'. The exquisite beauty of the text reminds one of Saint-Exupery's Little Prince. It can become a source of wonder for both children and adults around the world. A dream of small-scale harmony against a cosmic backdrop.
