I have written and illustrated several children's books for publishers like Tulika. This is my fifth book with them and second as an author. One of the painting titled ‘Facebook‘ was a rendition of a tiny sketchbook that was filled with drawings of my friends. This painting increased my curiosity to take it further. The idea of putting  a book together for children emerged when I started compiling all the details of my friends, who were from diverse background doing very interesting. The book was to keep the information of the individuals as authentic as possible while it remained narrative and interesting that clubbed various aspects from their daily activity in an simple order. Ideal approach was to put all the information in a condensed manner and represent it in the format of a comic book or graphic novel.
