Versova Vortex


Can you protect Versova from its fate? From the vortex on its way to the village?
Karuna was scared. Her father, who had left to go fishing early that morning, was unusually late. She was unable to shake off the ominous feeling that the pillage of the previous storm had seared into her psyche.
Friends and a cousin join Karuna as she embarks on a treacherous journey in search of her father where they learn the lore of their people, overcome personal fears, and are collectively forced to come face-to-face with the ravages of climate change.
Subuhi Jiwani brings to light the story of a defiant girl from the fishing community of Versova who pledges to
rescue her village from impending doom.

The StORI (Stories of Rural India) series uses real stories from rural India, of disenfranchised people and communities, and the unique challenges they overcome every day, be it in infrastructure, health care, disability, or job security. They are stories of triumph – of children who participate cheerfully in civic issues, athletes who power past their disabilities, citizens who demand their right to be heard – and an attempt to give these voices a platform, as well as address the serious dearth of children’s books that are set in non-urban locations.
