According to its publisher, the book is the story of a tree’s journey through life. As a seed, Ganga received a lot of love and support, and grew up to be a “majestic tree”. However, due to her arrogance and pride, she loses all her friends. The 45-year-old chef’s story shines the spotlight on how a living being’s life journey is ultimately about learning humility and gaining wisdom. Complete with an important life lesson and a relatable character, the book will surely leave a lasting impression on young minds.
Published by Bloomsbury, A Tree Named Ganga will be Vikas Khanna’s 28th literary work and will be released on 10th November 2017.
