Gone Goa Gone (The Goa Saga Book 2) Kindle Edition by kbc member Eisha Sarkar!
“In the Age of Discovery, there were three identical crosses. Portugal’s King Manuel I had bestowed one on Vasco da Gama, who discovered the sea route to India. The second he had bestowed on Pedro Álvares Cabral, who discovered Brazil, and the third on Afonso de Albuquerque who established the Portuguese hegemony in the Indian Ocean. Over the centuries two of the crosses have disappeared. Probably they’re hidden away in some antique collectors’ vaults. The third hangs around James’s neck. A clause put in by an ancestor during the Inquisition in Goa prevents Aeram, a practising Muslim, from inheriting Richard Albuquerque’s estates. Only his Christian son, James, can claim the title even though he was born out of wedlock. When Aeram presents Richard’s will in court, Daniel Albuquerque aka Danny (Richard’s cousin) contests the claim. James and Aeram battle the demons of their past to take on Danny and the very powerful Archbishop Patrick to save their estates.When Aeram and Saysha go to New York, they accidentally meet Igor Lebedinsky, a young intern at Aeram’s agent’s office. Saysha discovers that he’s the son of Alexandre Lebedinsky, the mining tycoon from Moscow and brother of her deceased birth-mother.Saysha realizes that James is not an ordinary stuntman. Even her very rich and powerful husband is scared of him. In the forests around the Albuquerque villa on the banks of the Mandovi river, James finally shows her why the property means much more than mere inheritance.”
The Mystery Of Diwali Ka Dwarpal By Roli Gaur Vashisht for 2-6 years
The facts about melanin and natural selection are a great way to explain the difference between skin colors to kids. It made for some interesting discussion with my little one and we also covered albinism/vitiligo along with the same. I love how the book understands that it’s OK to notice that we are different. But it’s NOT OK when we bully/tease/judge people based on these diversities. The book empowers children by providing knowledge regarding our diversities and assuring them that they have the power to create a positive change even though they are small.
The last few pages are for parents/guardians regarding the steps we can take to make ourselves, our children as well as those around us more tolerant.

Puhor and Niyor’s Mural of Family Stories by Pritisha Borthakur
I’m a journalist by profession; recently made my debut as a children’s book author with the title “Puhor and Niyor’s Mural of Family Stories”. It is a 1404-word children’s illustrated work, aimed towards a global audience of children between the ages of 4 and 10.
“Puhor and Niyor’s Mural of Family Stories” is a story about families, told by twin brothers Puhor and Niyor. It is a story illustrated with images of each unique family added to a grand mural. These different families include children with two moms, two dads, a single mother, a multiracial family unit, foster and adopted children, pet parents and more. These families teach each other about different types of people, and to not judge others based on their race, gender, sexual identity, disability, differences in background or anything else. They embrace their differences and paint a beautifully coloured mural, as beautiful and colourful as the community itself.
