Welcome to Pandupur! With its bustling marketplace and honking traffic, posh colonies and shanty towns, railway station and looming dam, forests and playgrounds, Pandupur is teeming with life, much like the river Dhun that flows alongside it. In Growing Up in Pandupur, sisters Adithi and Chatura Rao weave a web of stories of life lessons, laughter and tears, insecurities, small unkindnesses, and surprising friendship in this fictional town. The book builds a map of Pandupur through the lives of its youngest residents. Characters in the thirteen stories are faced with bullying, gender stereotyping, poverty, and privilege and, in the process of tackling these issues, they learn valuable lessons about the human heart and about growing up. Growing Up in Pandupur is a book that will resonate in the hearts and minds of children-and the young at heart-everywhere.
