As Ma Durga slays Mahisashura and inspires us to believe that good always triumphs over evil, here’s a book that will help us remember that evil-slayers and heroes come in all shapes and forms. 

When I Grow Up I Want To Be by Tweak Books, Juggernaut, is a compendium of inspiring and heartwarming stories from real-life achievers, changemakers and dreamers.  

What makes this book even more special is that instead of focusing on known names, it draws out lesser-known, but equally powerful stories. Take, for example, the story of Amiruddin Shah, who unlike other kids his age, did not want to spend his time playing. Instead, he had a unique passion, and despite all odds, went on to become an Indian classical ballet dancer.

The book is filled with inspiring stories like that of Amiruddin’s – well-researched and designed to encourage children to think carefully about who they are and what they want to be when they grow up. The language is simple, the stories are crisp and there are delightful illustrations by Aaryama Somayaji, which bring the characters to life.
