Raksha & Dhruv Jain- "Stories by Dhruv" 

In the summer of 2020 when there was a nationwide lockdown announced due to the pandemic, seven-year-old Dhruv from the coastal town of Mangalore had nothing better to do.

To keep him occupied (read out of her way, his mother asked him to write a story a day.

What started as a boring chore which his mother nagged him to do turned out to be quite enjoyable to Dhruv. 

Soon his book was filled with endearing stories with befitting illustrations from his imagination.

The stories were further adapted and written in a rhyming verse by his mom who has a penchant for writing; specifically children's literature thus adding her own twist to the tales while retaining the original plot and characters.
