Product Description

Somak Ghoshal grew up in Kolkata, went to college in Oxford, then worked in Delhi. Currently, he lives in Bangalore with his teddy bear, who has been his best friend for 35 years, and writes about books, art, and people who are fighting to right wrongs. He is a cat person, who also loves dogs and ice-cream. His picture book Piku's Little World, illustrated by Proiti Roy, was published by Pratham Books in 2019.

This book tells the stories of ten Indian heroes who have been working in diverse fields to help society's most vulnerable live a better life--from securing mobility rights for people with disability to abolishing the practice of manual scavenging. While their challenges are different, what they have in common is the desire to see all human beings live a life of dignity.
