MARCH 30TH, 2022

"I felt excited to share about my history and tell the story of my people."
"More than helping him achieve a good grade, this book has instilled a sense of pride he feels about his ancestors who have allowed him to be who he is today."
Thank you Divin and Kanchan Rianna Saney for sharing this experience and your wonderful reviews! You both made my Thursday morning!

VIRGINIE ZURCHER'S BOOK REVIEW

THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14TH, 2017

A very big thank you to French children's author, Virginie Zurcher for this most excellent review!
"I hope every child in Hong Kong and beyond will have the chance to read, 'Gope and Meera - A Migration Story.' It is not only a story about love and hope, but also the transmission of India's history in describing the Partition of India. This book naturally and simply opens a door about this event, which had many consequences for thousands of Indian families and should not be forgotten. Ritu, what you have done in this book is so right and necessary and I thank you for this. It has made me want to know more and I predict that you will become a very successful author, because you carry all the courage, determination and love of the heroes of your book. We are all very proud of you!"
