Product description


"A simple and yet compelling story about love and tolerance. Read out Ahimsa to your children. It's an important lesson delivered through a delightful story. " - Vidhu Vinod Chopra (Director - 1942: A love Story and Eklavya: The Royal Guard)

​"A poignant look at India's Independence through the eyes of a ten-year-old, Ahimsa is a well crafted tale of resistance. " - Rajkumar Hirani (Director - 3 Idiots, PK and Lage Raho Munna Bhai)​.

"A historical, timely, and informative story that is full of heart and belongs in most library collections." -School Library Journal, starred review

"Kelkar's first middle-grade book is filled with female empowerment, hope, family, and the power of nonviolent resistance. Drawing from her own family history, Kelkar doesn't shy from the reality that progress is slow and that one must persist even when all hope seems gone. Readers will empathize with this heartbreakingly charming debut about the universal struggle of overcoming fears and biases in order to make the world a better place." - Booklist, starred review

"This 2015 New Visions Award winner offers a complex narrative and inspires readers to check their privilege to address ongoing injustices." - Kirkus Reviews

"This is a story that is both enjoyable and hard to put down. Fluid writing and delightful, realistic point of view make Ahimsa an enjoyable period piece for young adults." - Foreword Reviews
