Leela Gour Broome enjoys playing with words, painting her puns into cartoons or cooking up real and imaginary yarns for children and anyone else who is willing to listen. She studied Western music and loves nature having experienced much of it first-hand in nine years of tea plantation life in South India. She thinks she is creative at craft, which she enjoys with her granddaughter. For sixteen glorious years, she conducted nature and environment camps for kids. She considers all her campers a part of her own family and, from all accounts, it's a feeling that's apparently mutual. She collects quirky, decorative cows and has them all over her farmhouse. She is married to a diehard gentleman farmer and lives on an organic, wooded farm outside Pune, with a menagerie of pets, resident and migratory birds and some wild animals.

At a chance meeting that might have been fated all along, the two twelve-year-olds are stunned by their own resemblance! As they exchange stories, their friendship rapidly deepens over pooping messenger pigeons that one can call with a special whistle, and Dada's kites dancing in the wind with colourful tails. But their joyous days come to an abrupt halt when Veer is kidnapped by malicious goons and Arzaan makes a fatal sacrifice to protect his friend. Will their bond be enough to save them both or is there only so much two young boys can do?
