Continuing the story of Tulika's 15-year journey.


Making this journey possible have been our authors, illustrators, translators, interns and printers. In the last 15 years, we have worked with 92 authors, 48 illustrators, 4 photographers, 92 translators, 27 interns and 15 printers. The fabulous galaxy include writers, poets, thinkers, activists, teachers, artists, each opening up and extending our understanding of children’s books.


The list is long and impressive: acclaimed writers Kalpana Swaminathan, Gita Hariharan, Manjula Padmanabhan, Paul Zacharia, strong feminist writers Suniti Namjoshi, Ambai and Kamla Bhasin, internationally acclaimed performance storytellers Cathy Spagnoli, Vayu Naidu and Jeeva Raghunath, peace activist Graeme MacQueen, award-winning wildlife filmmaker and conservationist Shekar Dattatri, teacher and animation filmmaker Nina Sabnani, renowned artists Paritosh Sen and A V Ilango, popular radio jockey Suchitra Ramadurai, culture critic and historian Lata Mani, archaeologist Shanti Pappu, gifted children’s book illustrators Ashok Rajagopalan, Ranjan De (who created the Tulika logo), Srividya Natarajan, Manjula Padamanabhan (again!), the best of children’s writers like Zai Whitaker, Ranjit Lal and, of course, Tulika’s own editor Sandhya Rao. While the illustrious ones bring the richness of experience, fresh new talent keeps us on our toes!
