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, thehindu.com

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, indianexpress.com

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, Goodbooks.in

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
