Luxmi has never thought much about the prospect of Indian independence. She and her twin, Bhola live in a small village with their Nani and her cousins. But Dak Chacha’s visit to the house gets her thinking.
Ahimsa by the author Supriya Kelkar is about India’s fight for Independence through the eyes of a ten year old girl, Anjali. The story revolves around Anjali’s life when her mum joined the ‘Quit India’ movement. The drastic changes in her life, the risks her parents took along with the people who were part of the movement, the peer pressure she experienced from her classmates because her parents were part of the movement and also because she treated the ‘untouchables’ like a normal human being.
