About the Contributors

The author has always been making up stories. She believes fantasy and reality are different ways to looking at the same thing. Stories, sleep and motichoor laddus are a few of her favourite things.

The illustrator enjoyed drawing cartoons as a child. They soon found their way onto her hankies and socks. Little wonder that she loves to create comics and went on to study Animation Film Design at NID, Ahmedabad.
