A most delightful read

An absolutely delightful read. I finished it at one go. The relationship between grandfather and child is so beautifully and sensitively portrayed. I especially liked the way the father also joins in the fantasy with grandpa and child! The mother gets portrayed as a villain but often, isn’t that the case😊? The author Madhuri Kamat shows an uncanny ability to capture nuances in relationships.
