Author: Arthy Muthanna Singh/ Mamta Nainy
Publisher: Rupa Publications

Award Category: Writings for Young Adults
About the Book: 

Have you heard of a lake where you can find hundreds of skeletons floating on the clear, blue waters? Would you believe it if we told you that there’s a gate that drips blood? Have you ever seen a tree as big as an entire forest… or a palace that has no pillars? How about a monastery that looks like a giant honeycomb from a distance?Strap yourself in and get ready for a swashbuckling tour across India with the second book in this exciting new series, A Dozen and a Half Stories, and discover the secrets behind some of the most mysterious places that you didn’t even know existed.From a fort where entry after sunset is forbidden to a one-of-a-kind crater created by a huge chip of the moon, from a church that drowns every monsoon and re-emerges during the summers, to pillars that sing Sa Re Ga Ma, these places will spook you, send shivers down the spine, make you gasp, and leave you with more questions than answers!
