From a sorrowful Sita to a resolute Razia … little Nina has played them all. Everyone calls her a fine actress. But Nina is at a loss when she’s given the role of Kasturba – after all Kasturba was only Gandhiji’s wife… wasn’t she? Confused, she starts preparing for the play. But soon discovers that an ‘ordinary’ wife can be quite an extraordinary person.

Good starting point

"An unusual choice of heroine works perfectly in this book about a woman who managed to retain her individuality in spite of living in Gandhiji’s shadow. Young Nina is the first choice when the teacher announces that they are going to stage a play on Gandhi’s birthday, October 2. After having played strong, independent women like Razia Sultan and the Rani of Jhansi, Nina finds it difficult to capture the essence of Kasturba on stage. But a chat with her mother and grandmother reveals surprising facets about Kasturba. The choice Kasturba makes at the end of the book is true to history and could be the starting point for much discussion on whether one needs to be rewarded for doing one’s duty. Simply told and illustrated in a minimalist manner by talented young author-illustrator Tanaya Vyas." - Asha Nehemaiah Goodbooks.in
