Satya's Boat - Author : Saraswati Nandini Majumdar
Little Satya lives by the River Ganga in Banaras and longs to row her own boat, just like her father. But he says she's not old enough or strong enough. But Satya can't wait. . . One day, she makes a little paper boat and that night, she dreams and drifts into a watery world. As the story unfolds, the finely detailed illustrations and their colours heighten its magical quality and capture the hustle and bustle of the Banaras riverfront, brilliantly.

Girls can too when boys can do! True we always say a boat man why not a boat woman! A little girls dream taking a shape..isn't that wonderful..when I read it out to my boy of 4 he just asked me one question..mumma why did satyas papa not teach her to sail a boat! It's important for boys to be taught to respect a woman's dreams perhaps this book could be a visually appealing starter for that!
