History Hunters – Chandragupta Maurya and the Greek Onslaught is the first fiction book by the author duo – Shruti Garodia and Archana Garodia Gupta. They made their gracious presence at the Kool School bookstore on August 07, 2022 for the book launch.
The kids present were excited to flash through their new purchase of the book and eager to know more about it from the authors. They gave an extensive introduction to their foray into the field of writing. They started by writing history books, and it’s their fondness of ‘Indian history’ that predisposed them to write the book.
They talked about their journey in writing the book; a conscious effort to do a lot of research pertaining to the period of reign of Chandragupta Maurya. It helped them to give a proper characterization in terms of clothes, jewelry and how people lived in that era. They also read some snippets from the book, which were amusing and enthralling.
The kids enjoyed the activities organized for them by the authors and was followed by though-provoking question and answer round.
The book introduces five characters and their travel through that period of history and their distinct experiences. A roller-coaster ride for all, they come across numerous challenges and scary situations which they must overcome to get back to their realm of time.
