Chitra writes stories about many things – often set in India or Indian families, full of nature and science and sometimes retellings of ancient tales – she loves writing stories that are not just one thing.
And as someone who grew up in the city and lived in the city most of her life, Chitra is fascinated with the rural landscapes, the forests and mountains of not just India but the entire planet. As Climate Change will cause natural disasters to occur more frequently, Chitra is keenly aware that the poorer countries and developing countries like India will bear the brunt of nature’s change.
Below you will find the themes in her books and perhaps you’ll find the story you’re looking for – to read for pleasure and use in your classrooms.
Chitra runs workshops on the themes listed above for teachers and students. Please visit her author visit page for more details.
