Tulika Publishers said they’d take it if we could rewrite it as a diary The idea appealed to us” she says Mayil Ganesan a pre-teen is constantly scribbling and doodling about the world around her the changes in her body seeking answers of confusing questions “In 2015 it won the Sahitya Akademi’s Bal Sahitya Puraskar” says Rajendran who works with gender-related themes in many of her books “I think most independent children’s books publishers today are aware of stereotyping and are doing away with it Sometimes I even think they overdo it — it’s so rare to see a girl in a pink frock in a book these days I personally do it because I enjoy doing it — I like to see what happens to a story when you break the rules” she says Up next: A picture book called Suddenly Cow Natasha Sharma Natasha Sharma 39 Category: picture books and Middle-grade readers How old does a person have to be to be able to write for children Natasha Sharma isn’t quite sure but she does know that she is “133 Saturnian years or 21 Martian years old” She’s also “10 years old within particularly in moments of hysterical laughter that end up in hiccups and 273 years in dog-years-converted-to-human-years (the best measure of a sensible person’s age It makes me very wise)” It makes her quite the right person to be writing across genres and age groups — she has written picture books such as Princess Easy Pleasy (2016) and Rooster Raga (2013) for five-seven year olds; historical fiction (her popular History Mystery series) for eight year olds and above and nearly-non-fiction works such as Squiggle Takes a Walk (2014) and Squiggle gets Stuck (2016) that aim to make middle-graders grasp the nuances of punctuation and grammar It’s in these books for the middle-graders that Sharma really comes into her own She has a whacky sense of humour and an intuitive understanding of how long to hammer home a moral and when to draw back and let the children have a vicarious romp It makes her books a curious mix of unusual trivia and good old-fashioned fun and repudiates the idea that learning and fun are mutually exclusive ideas Sharma likes to get ideas about her stories first hand “Young readers are forthright and so much fun I’ve had them tell me about the nail-chewers and nose-pickers in their family and friends” she says Her first book Icky Yucky Mucky (2014) was a story about a royal family with disgusting habits like chomping food biting nails and so on How does she know if her audience is having fun Sharma has a rather expedient barometer for gauging audience reaction: “My first readers are my son and daughter They are 11 and nine years old and cover most of my target audience While I know they form a biased readership I hover over them trying to decipher facial expressions as they read They do give meaningful feedback that I take very seriously” she says Up Next Sharma will begin writing her next History Mystery with Shah Jahan as the central character There are two other books — one inspired by her love of mangoes the other a story for middle grade that has been a long work-in-progress Mitali Perkins 53 Category: 10 + to young adult Born to a harbour civil engineer father and a teacher mother by the time Mitali Perkins was 11 she had moved out of the family home in Kolkata and lived in over five countries around the world including Ghana Cameroon the UK US and Mexico It was only in seventh grade that her family settled in California and Perkins became accustomed to the elusive rhythms of a regular life In all those years the only constant in their itinerant life were her books “It was difficult to move around a lot but I always had my books and writing They were home to me That’s also a gift that stories give a child” says the writer now based out of San Francisco Bay area When she finally began to write Perkins found herself invariably writing about children caught between cultures Her first book The Sunita Experiment (1993) was the happy outcome of a contest organised by the publishing house Little Brown and told the story of a Bengali-American girl whose grandparents come to visit her in the States In the year that follows Sunita finds herself at variance with her American upbringing and her Indian roots and begins to deliberate on who she really is This preoccupation with questions of identity culture and race about power prejudice economic disparity and the fallouts of violence and consumerism would go on to become determinants of Perkins’ subsequent books such as Monsoon Summer (2005) Bamboo People (2010) and more recently Tiger Boy (2015) Her characters are almost always south Asian (Indian Bangladeshi Burmese to cite a few) and Perkins weaves in contemporary socio-political references to her narratives to set the choices and outcomes of her characters in context Perkins says her themes fell into place without design born of her experiences in those lands and her subsequent research on topics that were close to her heart “I wrote the books I wanted to write not to fill a gap After they were published however I found that books featuring children without privilege and power were not as common as other types of books” she says But the publishing industry is exacting and Perkins whose books have steadily been on notable books lists is aware of that “My second book Monsoon Summer came out 12 years after The Sunita Experiment and endured 22 ‘no-s’ from different editors Book publishing is a business not a non-profit You need to sell books” she says What helped her along was an authorial epiphany — the realisation that “writing for children is not really that different than writing for adults The entire process of writing is challenging You have to be willing to take risks face rejection and master revision (be willing to change every word) — I call them the three ‘Rs’ of becoming a published author” The realisation freed her from her addressing a set target audience “I write for children But mostly I write stories for myself” she says Up Next Her forthcoming untitled young adult novel from Farrar Strauss and Giroux releases in autumn 2017 Perkins has signed a

you will for fellow musicians in flautist and band leader Ian Anderson’s post on choosing Indian food: “Nothing disrupts a band sound-check like the pervasive after-effects of theTarka Dhal(lentils and garlic)” Anderson who has a good friend in renowned Indian flaute maestro Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia has made enough trips to India (his first trip was back in 1972) to be considered a guru of sorts on Indian food In an undated post on Jethrotullcom Anderson begins by explaining that he wrote this post after a flood of emails from fans asking him what they should choose on a first visit to an Indian restaurant Known to take no short cuts Anderson gets into food history of Indian cuisine in the UK before he charts a course-by-course plan (including choice of beverage) for “curry novices” as he puts it Chicken Tikka (Source: Lucas Richarz/Flickr) He is also largely unbiased in his post offering no suggestions but mainly an explanation of what each dish is It’s only when he extols the virtues of a naan “cooked in thetandoorclay oven unleavened and doughy is a delight to be dipped” readers know that he is a true fan of Indian bread Finding parallels in Western cuisines – he compares papad to a giant chip made of lentil flour and kebabs to sausages made of lamb and beef – Anderson demystifies Indian cuisine in a most engaging manner Of course there are some inaccuracies in that
