Irfaan has a story in his head. So do Thanh, Suzanne, Wang and others. They write them down on white sand and yellow sand, pebbly and clayey sand. and then what happens to them? Sandhya Rao lyrically evokes the ebb and flow of tales across distant shores. Srividya Natarajan`s stunning illustrations gather in a sweep, myths, legends and everyday stories across time and place. Characters and images, sea and sand, fill the pages, capturing the timelessness and interconnectedness of stories.
