Soda is a dog who feels like a dog. Bonda is a cat who feels like a... dog! A quirky tale about two friends, which makes us think about who we are and how we see ourselves.

Expressions, colours and textures work in perfect balance with the seemingly simple text to create  a joyful portrait of a friendship that goes beyond appearances.

A cat caught in a puppy act

On the surface, Soda and Bonda… is a simple one: the story of a two friends, Soda, the dog, who looks and feels like one and Bonda, the cat, who looks like a cat but feels like a dog. But it also raises questions about identity, self-perception and acceptance. - Preeti Zachariah, The Hindu,

Walking lessons in accepting differences

We are all stuck in roles defined by different conditions – age, gender, religion, culture, caste – the list never ends. Soda and Bonda gently shake that all up and form a welcome platform to discuss differences and acceptance. - Indian Express, Tanu Shree Singh,

Entertaining and heartwarming

Soda and Bonda is a perfect picture book, sweet and simple on the outside and deep and meaningful on the inside!, Goodbooks,

A lesson on acceptance

“The illustrations express the emotions of the two animals very well and helps the story to progress thereby making the story easy to understand for 3-year olds, which is the targeted age group. It teaches the children to accept their friends as they are rather than what they want them to be.” — Hriday Nayak (age 15) The Book Review, November 2018
