Ahimsa - Supriya Kelkar

Staff Pick

In 1942, as India struggles for freedom from British rule, Mohandas (Mahatma) Gandhi asks one family member from each family to join Ahimsa (Tu/Lee & Low, $18.95), the non-violent resistance to British governance. Ten-year old Anjali fears that her father will join, and is blindsided when it’s her mother who becomes an activist. As her mother reaches out to the Dalit community, the caste system’s untouchables, Anjali is initially shocked but soon comes to question her own biases. Inspired by her great-grandmother’s experiences, debut author Supriya Kelkar presents an accessible and eerily timely exploration of what social justice really means. Ages 10-12.
