I am Vinati's mother. I came to know of her facility in writing at the age of five, when she wrote a small poem of 8 lines, on Lal Bahadur Shastri and the poem was published n the school magazine.

As we have never lived abroad for any length of time, Vinati was brought up in New Delhi, India with Indian traditions, values and beliefs with modernity which comes through education. She felt comfortable in both eastern and western cultures and social milieus and always felt that the children should be given a mix of values, so that they remain grounded and grow up believing in themselves or in their own identity. This book is on account of her sensitive observations, which has helped her to see both the positive and negative sides of culture/ways of life. It is an easy, racy read with humourous anecdotes and wittty interpretations so typical of her writing. To me it seemed as if she was writing a long letter (like she used to when away from home)
I may perhaps be biased, but the book undoubtedly has a very different way of looking at "parenting", particularly for those living abroad and may not have given much 'thought' to the subject so far.

Very well done! she be publishe

Thank you so much mama! To be appreciated by one's parents is the most special feeling in the world. You gave me the values I am trying to pass on to my children!
