But Sadiq is determined to pursue his passion.This winsome tale that defies gender norms and talks about a fading shepherd craft of Kashmir, is beautifully written by Mamta Nainy, and illustrated through watercolour vistas by renowned artist Niloufer Wadia.

Mamta Nainy

Mamta Nainy is a children's writer and editor. So she divides her time between writing and editing for children, making doodles that only she finds funny and eating cupcakes. She loves travelling but is too lazy to do it, so she makes do with reading. She spent some years in advertising before an apple fell on her head while she was sitting under a mango tree and she had her eureka moment-she has written some eight books for children since then. Currently she works as consulting senior editor with Katha.

Niloufer Wadia

Niloufer Wadia quit her 20 year career in advertising to follow her passion - illustration and painting. She works in traditional and digital media. Storybook illustration happened quite by chance, but this is her seventh picture book and while it has gone well so far, she believes she has miles to go, and much to learn.
