Manju is a collection of 20 short stories. It will be published in Hindi language. The book Manju is loosely based on the life of my mother, Manju sharma, where I have taken snippets from her life and converted them into moral stories for children. The stories also give a glimpse of early India, its traditions and values, for children to understand and imbibe. These stories depict the fun and enriched life of Manju with her siblings in the historical city of Agra and her ancestral village Shergarh. Few of the stories are based on her life in the USA during the covid pandemic.
