A high school kid Arjun who suddenly forms an intimate bond with his new teacher, Vishnu Gupta.

Raghav, a rag picker, finds a bottle one day and decides to do something with it, something different.

A notorious kid, Ramesh, suddenly has to deal with the absence of his mother and Sreedhar, his friend, who lost his mother couple of years back, comes to provide solace.

Emily, a spastic child born in a rich household strikes a friendship with Rahim, a newly hired gardener.

And many more such tales of friendship, trust, fraternity and everything that’s human.

Chalk and Duster is a beautiful collection of stories which makes you travel in time. As an editor, I enjoyed different experiences which needed polishing only in its language and not in how they were weaved.
