‘From The Toddler Diaries’ is a series of illustrated books which celebrates the spectrum of Indian festivals as experienced by a child. Presented in poetry and color, the books are designed to drape parents and children in vivid hues of India’s cultural fabric. The inspiration behind this collection comes from an appreciation of a child’s clarity in perception, which becomes magical because of its simplicity.
Look at those enormous snake boats, it's Vallamkali today
Hundreds of expert oarsmen singing and rowing away
Look at all the dishes, what a sight to behold
Placed on a banana leaf,
twenty-six I'm told
