This book reminds us that, in India, the pandemic has been compounded by political opportunism, administrative incompetence and utter disregard for the right to the life of people who are marginalized due to socio-economic reasons.Jamlo Walks is very much a story about privilege and the lack of it, but Mishra writes without judgement and with empathy . . . it's one of those books that I hope will find a place in every child's bookshelf. I also hope that parents or elders of some sort will make the time to go through Jamlo Walks with the kiddie reader and talk to them about the issues touched on in the storyA deeply moving story about an Adivasi Gond child . . . Mishra's storytelling is rich and sophisticated, with marvellous illustrations by Tarique Aziz, that says little and leaves a lot to the imaginationThe book makes an effort to remember those thousands of migrant workers who had to walk home for hundreds of kilometers in sweltering heat to reach their homelandBased on the true story of a little girl who started walking back to her home during the 2020 lockdown, this hard-hitting book doesn't hesitate to tell the truth.Jamlo Walks chronicles [a] heartbreaking journey, while holding a mirror to society. Written by Delhi-based filmmaker-writer Samina Mishra, illustrated by Tarique Aziz and designed by Devangana Dash, the narrative also zooms into the socio-economic divides that exist across strata.
