Three cheers for this fantastic book!
Three more for its multi-talented author, Devashish Makhija!

Here is the citation from the jury which, much like the story of Oonga,
needs to be read in full!

"This novel uses the adventure story as a vehicle to explore how tribal protectors and conservators of nature can be historically marginalised and misunderstood by those in power. It helps young readers and adults see how we might move closer to stewardship by viewing the earth as tribal people do, and away from ownership and the resultant devastation that comes from the urban 'developmental' viewpoint.
This book is remarkable for building a powerful thematic structure by controlling several interacting leitmotifs. These interacting ideas bring within the novel's scope a staggering range of subtexts from hope in human wisdom to near despair at human depravity."

Can a snake learn to hiss and not bite?
Why yes, it can! We spent International Day of Non-Violence (2nd October)
with the superstar storyteller and author Vayu Naidu! In her own inimitable way,
she narrated a Bengali folktale Hiss, Don't Bite!
It got the wheels turning, conversations running and children smiling :)
