The book “CROWL” revolves around the friendship between an owl and a crow – Shimla raven. The owl represents the night, while the crow symbolizes the day. The story is divided into three chapters: “Shimla by day,” “The Other Crows,” and “Letter box and Ladder Box.” The birds explore various parts of Shimla, sharing their thoughts and opinions about the town, including its good, bad, and ugly aspects. They visit places like the Shimla courts, where they humorously comment on the law and legal practitioners. They also visit the famous Kalibarri temple and the Shimla coffee house, where they witness interesting, funny, and strange events. After a beautiful sunset, they enter a charming restaurant called “LadderBox.” They continue their fascinating conversations wherever they go. From the Ladderbox restaurant, they fly to eastern Shimla, where they encounter a renowned painter’s house – “Ravens’ Dale’’. The crow, being a great storyteller, shares many tales with her wise and creative friend, the owl. The owl admires the crow’s storytelling abilities. Eventually, they part ways with the rising moon, saying goodbye. The owl then dashes into the moonlit night sky to play a game of “moon-ball” with the moon.
