It’s not easy being a child from the stars! Blessed by the starry skies, little Nayantara finds that adults are not always the most sensible of people. If they were, then they wouldn’t force their hugs and kisses on her, would they? Each time she says no, things happen! Bad things. To the people who hurt her. The villagers start to point fingers at the little girl until tired of the accusations, her parents take her to the adorable mystic, Silly Baba. Will Silly Baba solve the problem? Will people finally understand ‘consent’? The Strange Case of Nayantara is a fun read that teaches children that it’s okay to say no!
