Little Satya lives by the River Ganga in Banaras and longs to row her own boat, just like her father. But he says she’s not old enough or strong enough. But Satya can’t wait. . . One day, she makes a little paper boat and that night, she dreams and drifts into a watery world. As the story unfolds, the finely detailed illustrations and their colours heighten its magical quality and capture the hustle and bustle of the Banaras riverfront, brilliantly.
