Young Ashwin is torn trying to understand that his parents love him, but that grown-ups too, need their own space. Harsha, a chubby chunk of lard, fights a seemingly hopeless battle against obesity.

My Review


Grandma's stories are always kids' favourite. Climbing rainbows is a collection of Grandma's stories that are a step ahead. The stories depict the lives of kids who faced challenges and successfully coped up with several situations and evolved as different human beings with a unique outlook in life. The story are embellished with subplots. Every story loudly proclaims the importance of humanity. For a kids' the narration is a little serious and some of the subplots seemed unwanted distraction.  The book is overpriced but the messages conveyed by the stories cannot be valued in terms of money. Every plot represents the live in the current scenario. The book is an advice that we would want to give our children.
