This city,

my city

is also your city.

It has stories and loris and magic and tears

Of dreamers and doers; of people with fears

Of vada paav and brun maska and bhel puri in the bylanes.

Of potters and paan wallas and policewallas who reign

Of its Kolis and tolis and Bollywood champagne

This is a story city.

This story. That story.

Twenty stories. Twenty lives. Twenty times real.

This Mumbai.

Thank you SO much @TheKJunction for the awesome feedback. This series (and Toto) is what we started FunOKPlease with and it feels so good that 6 years later, it is still being loved and appreciated by little readers!
Effects of vigorous book reading sessions as per my son's demands

My 2 year old son 'A', playing with his local train miniature and telling me -

A : mumma jab delhi jaayenge to local train me baithenge (when we go to delhi, we will go in local train)

Me : mumbai has local train like this you have in your hand, delhi has metro train. We will go in metro train when we go to delhi

A : ok...mumma bangalore me kaunsi train hai? (Which train is there in Bangalore)

:O :)

PS - he is a big fan, rather an addict of mumbai book, absolutely adores delhi book and we just started reading bangalore book day before yesterday. This book series from Funokplease publishers is a must have for kids!
