This is Where We Live

An ordinary day unfolds through the eyes of Jugnu and Noorie, two felines in Shantiniketan—early morning rays slant in through the windows, fish and fruit sellers do their rounds, and children leave for school. However, as the hours slip by, and kal baisakhi, the spring storm, sweeps in all of a sudden, can the day be anything but extraordinary? Stop and stare at Jugnu and Noorie’s everyday world, discover the tiny details and peel each layer in this wordless and slow picture book.

About the Author: 

Manjari Chakravarti has always loved picture books. In fact, she spent so much time living inside stories and their illustrations as a child, that to grow up to be an artist and illustrator was the only thing she ever wanted. She loves working with all sorts of materials and colours. She has exhibited widely in India and abroad, and stays and works in the quiet town of Santiniketan, where her close association with nature moulds her art and writing.
