The book sees the world through a child’s perspective.”At the unveiling, filmmaker Anubhav Sinha said, “I am writing a script on children and was happy to hear about Vani’s book. It’s important to listen to kids, answer their questions and let them shape up the future for themselves.”

“I am happy that Vani has written a book around a child’s imagination. We all lose the child within us, while growing up.” Dutta said.
