I’m very honoured to receive the Big Little Book Award 2020 for Illustrator. I would like to dedicate it to all the wonderful illustrators who are doing such amazing, inspiring work in children’s books in India currently.

It is encouraging to see Parag and Tata Trusts and more organisations recognizing and shining a light on people working in the children’s literature space. It is encouraging for the industry at large and the people that work within it. There is so much great work happening right now and in the past and it is good to see that kind of work encouraged and appreciated
