Not From Mama’s Tummy by Mallika, is a story about an adopted girl who learns she is adopted and tries to come to terms with it. Her teacher helps her in this regard by telling her stories from nature where birds and animals look after the offspring of other species, and also a story from possibly one of the epics. It also contains a strong message about how parenthood is something that manifests through deed and not merely through blood. The use of stories from nature seemed a good way to offer a little bit of trivia to young readers and a convincing way to drive the message mentioned before.

Janaki

Why was I not born from my mama’s tummy like my friends?’ is a question that may bother an adopted child during the early years.

This story, yet again, seeks to address that question through the inspiring tale of an epic character.

Drawing from the vast repository of stories about adopted children in Indian mythology, this story tells the tale of Janaki.
