Saleem on Earth and Other Stories
There is something almost magical about the festivals in India. Not only do they break the monotony of our weary lives with loud explosions of light and colour and music, but they also somehow erase those invisible barriers between people of different faiths and backgrounds, bringing them together in a common spirt of celebration.
Our forthcoming title, Saleem on Earth, is an anthology of festival stories set in different parts of the country. Each tale evokes the spirit of the festival it focuses on in a unique way. Some stories are distressingly poignant, some laugh-out-loud funny, and some are tinged with sepia-toned nostalgia. And all of them will warm your heart like a cup of hot chocolate.
Saleem on Earth is among the first books to be published in the Scholastic Nova category.
