Description

“These little baby pine cones, sprout in spring, face challenges in summer, go through monsoon and autumn, and when cold winter comes by, they close up to protect themselves. One day, these pine cones will fall down to the ground and roll around until they have gone under the soil. The seeds inside these pine cones will then make a new sapling, which will become a huge tree, thus restarting this cycle. This is exactly like us: We are born, we mature, and one day we will all die; but we will live on in the people after us, and in what we leave behind for the world.”

This new series called “The Mountain Walker Kids” kicks off with 13-year-old Upamanyu Mukherjee recounting his learnings from various Himalayan travels, right from the time he was a few years old till his most recent trip to Himachal Pradesh in January 2019. His frequent trips to the Himalayas have earned him the moniker ‘The Little Mountain Walker’ and this book covers his personal journey of growth, maturity and learnings – from milking a cow to chasing lambs; from trekking to camping in the snow; from drinking water straight from a Himalayan stream to sharing Siddu, Rajma Chawal, and Aloo Parathas with his Himalayan friends… the book covers all these experiences and more.
