Chitra Soundar is a closet clown, consummate liar, writer and storyteller. As a kid, she danced in a Bollywood movie, acted on stage with her neighbourhood friends and disliked Maths because it never added up. Chitra grew up on a wholesome diet of stories from Indian epics and folk wisdom. She hangs out in schools, libraries and bookshops making up stories with children and regaling everyone with tales from her books and her childhood.


You’re safe with meWhen the moon rises high and the stars twinkle, it is bedtime for the baby animals of the Indian forest. But tonight, when the skies turn dark and the night grows stormy, the little ones can’t sleep. SWISH-SWISH! CRACK-TRACK! FLASH-SNAP! goes the storm. Only Mama Elephant with her words of wisdom can reassure them, “You’re safe with me.”
