Master story-teller, Vinod Kumar Shukla’s very moving short story of a man who wants to live in a house with a tree. His present house has a karanj tree. Karanj’s leaves and flowers fly into his house as the wind blew away its fragrance. One day, the owner asked him to vacate the house. He looked and looked for another house with a tree. Now fewer and fewer houses can accommodate a tree. What will he do? Where will he live?

Seasoned illustrator, Taposhi Ghoshal’s water-coloured illustrations are a visual treat. With such few colours, she can bring to the karanj tree to life with all its companions- the house and and the pigeons. Through illustrations, she not only creates a calm and serene mood of the book, she also adds a sense of maturity to its presentation.
