Imagine a world where there was no internet, no mobile phones, tablets or any of the hi-fi gadgets that kids today are used to. Telephones (Landline), Transistors/Tape Recorders were the most high-end gadgets of those times and were considered luxury items, found in only certain homes of middle-class India.

So how did children spend their time, especially their holidays? Holidays were mostly spent travelling (by train or bus) to meet relatives/friends or hosting them. This book takes the reader on an enjoyable trip down the memory lane to the 1970s and attempts to recreate the memorable summer holiday of a little girl with her family.

Growing up in a cosmopolitan city (Madras), Anju visits her hometown (Trivandrum) during her summer holidays, which leaves an everlasting impact on her innocent mind forever. It turns out to be a remarkable vacation of new experiences, little adventures and lovely discoveries for Anju through her cousins, family members and friends. She experiences a new way of life amidst nature’s bounty that becomes an unforgettable part of her growing up, creating lifetime bonds.

Moreover the dedicated and wonderful teachers from her beloved Model School, in Chennai, played a significant role in creating that curiosity in her to discover interesting books which motivated her to become a writer.
Being a Librarian, her profession moved her closer to the world of literature and inspired her to write. An active blogger and sports enthusiast, she also loves to travel and experience new cultures and cuisines.
Her first publication was a short story titled ‘Pangs of Guilt’ based on the great Indian epic – ‘The Mahabharatha’.  ‘A Bygone Summer Wonderland’ is her second book, which is an evocative tale, through the eyes of a child, set in the city of Thiruvananthapuram of the 1970s.
