Flying with Grandpa

by Kamat, Madhuri

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.
