What Children Could be Reading
Aashti Mudnani, Aparna Kapur, Bijal Vachcharajani and Maithili Doshi (12y+)
Aashti Mudnani is a professional hunter of children’s books, illustration lover, listener of stories and chai drinker. She started Lightroom, a bookstore for children’s books when she and her husband couldn’t easily find books that they would have liked for their children. Seven years after the first idea and with the help of a whole lot of people, the store opened in 2013. She loves being outdoors, especially where there are more wild things than cityscapes. But for now, she lives in Bangalore with her two daughters, husband and their cat, Inji.
