About the Editors
Radhika is the brain and spirit behind Tulika. The motivation for setting it up was both her passion for the print medium itself and the creative possibilities of children’s books – possibilities of ‘bridging the gap between knowledge and imagination’ as she puts it. She took the pioneering plunge in 1996 and the rest, as they say, is history!
Her commitment to creating multilingual books that are inclusive in every respect has been a rich and insightful learning experience for the whole team, and sets the tone for everything that bears the crow logo. Very hands-on as a publisher, she is deeply involved in the editing, visualizing, designing and marketing of the books.
Sandhya Rao is one of the finest writers for children in India. Her books have won awards and accolades: My Friend the Sea won the Ambitious Children’s Book Project award at the Berlin Children and Youth Literature Festival, 2005. My Mother’s Sari was chosen as an Outstanding International Book, 2007, by the United States Board for Books for Young People (USBBY) and the Children’s Book Council. She has written over 20 books. Chennai-based Sandhya has an eclectic taste in books, music and films and loves listening to stories, especially real stories. She works at The Hindu.
