The Gular Flower (English)

Author : Rinchin
Illustrator : Vipul Verma

The gular, or cluster fig, flower is very very beautiful, everyone says. But what does it look like? When does it bloom? There are many stories, and only the really lucky get to see it. As she goes about her day picking waste, Renchu is obsessed with just one thought – will she too see it? The author’s own wonder at discovering the secret of the gular flower led to this charming story, which becomes more than just the quest for an elusive flower by being set in the world of the displaced Paardhi tribals. The strikingly textured, stylised illustrations take us through their dreams and reality.
