Author in a Meadow

Author Name: Dhrubi Goswami | Format: Paperback | Genre : Children & Young Adult | Other Details

In her debut short story collection, Dhrubi takes the readers on a fascinating journey of what it is to see the world through the eyes of an 8-year-old. In The Giant Feather, her attempt to place the perennial conflict of man versus environment and her belief in the ultimate triumph of the birds clearly depict the hope and aspiration of a child for a better tomorrow where every life matters. In The Girl Who Wished to Fly, Dhrubi unleashes the imagination of a child with abandon.  There is nothing impossible in Diamond’s world and when she tells her parents that so many adventures await her and that she wants to do whatever she desires, it captures the courage that children possess to pursue the unforeseen. The Missing Pen reminds us that the greatest joys in life are found in the simplest of things and what seems like a non-issue to an adult is sometimes very valuable for a child. In the last story, The Author in a Meadow, Dhrubi reflects on her own desire to be an author and reminds the reader of the importance of passion in achieving one’s goals.

Dhrubi Goswami

Dhrubi is an 8-year-old who finds great joy in asking questions, seeking answers and imagining a world where nothing is impossible- be it finding a unicorn, swimming with a mermaid, or flying into the deep blue sky like a shooting star. She loves to curl up in a corner with a packet full of chips and get immersed in the world created by her favorite authors Roald Dahl, Enid Blyton and Bill Watterson.  Her questions about the world around her are limitless and she loves to pen down the facts that she collects in her little diary. She is a student of Shiv Nadar School, Noida, India and the school, the teachers and her friends have been a great source of joy for her.  She lives in New Delhi with her parents, little sister and maternal as well as paternal grandmothers.
