Meet Bookworm Bijal- the sustainable bookworm! Calling upon my fellow bookworms to try and make our reading habits greener and cleaner bit by bit! Comic from my column with Pune Mirror.
Based on my dear friend, editor and collaborator Bijal Vachharajani who has read more books than the number of people I know! Bijal, a prolific editor and writer of kids' literature has several books to her credit that speak about sustainability and the environment, including What's Neema Eating Today (Pratham), So You Want to Know About the Environment (Rupa) and her latest, A Cloud Called Bhura (Speaking Tiger).
Bijal's late partner Abhiyan was a scientist and educator whose work association with the Wardha-based Nalanda Academy revolved around preparing underprivileged young adults for college life. The Nalanda Academy launched the Abhiyan Library Campaign in his memory. You too can donate books to similar causes by visiting Pratham Books' https://donateabook.org.in.
