My Experience With Airavata
In my not-so-long author experience, I have tried to write for various genres. Horror, Thriller, Social Issues. But children fiction is one I had always stayed away from. My perspective changed when my son Sampurno arrived in my life. I started experiencing the world through his views and the infinite world of innocence beckoned. To capture our funny moments together I started journaling #DiaryofSampurno.
Just when I was toying around the idea to write a short story for children a lovely opportunity arrived from Meera V Barath and Pachyderm Tales. A book for the children written by adults and children about one of their favourite animals – the elephant.
Well, I must admit the mighty elephants impress the adult in me too. So out came the pen and flowed the story of a kind, gentle young elephant Jerry who visits the school in the city for the first time. He met bullies, made friends and created wonderful memories. So read what happens “When An Elephant Comes to School” in the wonderful collection of elephant stories.
Who is this book for?
It is a book for children and adults who are still children at heart.

Lovely experience and the insight into making of your story ..
Aww… three cheers to Sampurno for encouraging mommy to take up kiddo lit. This is a beautiful story. Best wishes.
The vivid story penned got me to think about a small elephant going to school. I am a fan of your writing well penned.
Enjoyed your story, kudos!
I enjoy reading your stories Sreeparna and while I am yet to read this one, I am sure it’s a fun tale. Imagine an elephant going to school and I am wondering how you wove in all those exoeriences of his including the bullying. Looking forward. Best wishes to you.
You should write more of children literature now that you have aced it. it is a beautiful story Sreeparna.
Lovely story Sreeparna.
