We are elated at our MACHHER JHOL winning the Neev Book Award 2019 in the Picture Book category at the Neev Literature Festival held last week.
We can’t seem to be having our fill of this most beautiful citation:
‘The colourful streets of Kolkata come alive in this heart-warming picture book in which a young boy goes on a quest to surprise his father. The reader cannot help but follow along, only to be surprised as well. Through the masterful interplay between the complex narrative and the rich painterly artwork, the author and the illustrator illuminate the deep social fabric of Indian society.’
Thank you, Neev Lit-fest, for this proud recognition. @Sumanta Dey and @Richa Jha, take a bow. Congratulations!
