By Gita Wolf and V. Geetha

Years later, when asked about Tara’s origins, Gita Wolf would say, “I didn’t really have a business plan, nor had I thought through all that publishing involved. As an avid child-reader fed on Anglo-Saxon books, it seemed to me that fun and adventure seemed to happen only to children in other places… and I wondered, why not right here?”

By Arun Wolf

What is remarkable to me about many Tara projects is the spirit of collaboration that lies behind them. I think this commitment to genuine dialogue finds a way of seeping through into the pages of the books, but it’s perhaps not always obviously tangible.

Mayur & Tushar Vayeda: Human beings cast their net to fish but only reach relatively shallow waters.

There is another world below us. We fish unaware of how deep the ocean is, and how filled it is with life.

Small whirlpools forming within the ocean’s current, a quick circular movement.
