Flying with Grandpa
Xerxes' mother wants him to be like the famous philanthropist and
industrialist JRD Tata, but all Xerxes wants is to be like his Grandpa—
his beloved Mamavaji. Xerxes’ grandfather behaves like a child, so his
mother thinks Grandpa is a bad influence on Xerxes. Then one day he
overhears his parents talking about separating him from Grandpa.
Xerxes cannot let that happen! If Grandpa learnt to fly, it might just solve
the problem. But Grandpa isn't interested in any plans for him! Whatever
is Xerxes going to do?
Gentle and humorous, this is a book about love—parental love, that
comes burdened with expectations and the unconditional, joyous love
between Xerxes and his grandfather. It is a glimpse into the Zoarashtrian
community, which migrated to India from Iran centuries ago. It also
glances at the subject of ageing, and how it affects families.
