Whispers in the Classroom, Voices on the Field, edited by Richa Jha, illustrated by Priya Kurian and contributions by 31 fantastic writers with the song, penned by Shobit Arya, publisher of Wisdom Tree, and composed and rendered by Indraneel Hariharan finds a place in the Limca Book of Records.
An absolute honour to have been a part of this wonderful journey. Though I had very little to do with the actual making of the song (apart from getting wowed by the ease with which Shobit came up with the words!), I’d like to believe that the handsome anthology that I put together went on to inspire an idea as novel as this.
As Shobit wrote in an earlier facebook update, ‘A memory from three years back. Interestingly, this idea has been copied by several publishers and authors thereafter. At the cost of sounding pompous, we set the trend.’
