Treasure At The Train Station: An Adventure In Mumbai (By Good Earth)

This book illuminates history through unique and wonderful storytelling.

Description

What do you see when you visit Victoria Terminus, today’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus? Trains? People? Animals? Here’s a magical story set in the grandest railway station in India that takes young readers on a wild ride with a lively bunch of characters – the animal sculptures on the station’s walls. Meet the monkeys, mongeese, owls and egrets who spring to life every night to chat, run races and even a foil a robbery! At the heart of the book is also a missing jewel, a grandfather, his twin grandchildren, and the fabulous city of Bombay – today, Mumbai. Like parallel railway tracks, both stories begin and end at the station, meeting in a wonderful twist of fate.

Its pages exploding with colour and action, this fantastical tale, full of detailed hand-drawn illustrations, introduces readers to one of India’s most beautiful buildings, and one of its most exciting cities. The book packs mystery within history, with a generous slice of architecture!

Victoria Terminus is not just any old railway station with trains and crowds, but a place of magic and mystery. In this incredible story about stone sculptures coming to life, and precious objects lost and found, the reader is taken through the ins and outs of a station and a city, in a great journey of discovery.

The book blends the histories of Bombay and Victoria Terminus to create a thrilling adventure with evocative drawings that bring the station and the city to life.

Fully illustrated 64-page book with over 20 full-page and over 20 smaller illustrations.

Reference notes at the back of the book explain the Neo Gothic architecture of CSMT to children in a simple, conversational style, with illustrated explanations about its building parts.

Maps of Bombay, of the ‘once-islands’ city, form the endpapers.

About Us

Dear Mom or Dad of Wonderful Kids

The idea of Parent Central came about as we wanted to share our learnings from being involved parents and people who care about children. We noticed that we and many others were  parenting by “accident” –  doing actions with best intentions but without full knowledge of outcomes and hence results were not the best. So, we decided to take the time to learn about what all we were subjecting our children to (be it in our interactions, or products, or food cooked at home, or classes/workshops, or anything else). Although tedious and slow but the conscious process ensured very good outcomes

Parent Central we decided, will be a place where parents (not corporate employees who happen to be parents) will use their learnings to curate and recommend to other parents, a vast range of knowledge/ products/ services/ classes/ experiences, keeping one principle at the core – would they use those on their own kids after due research? The result is a portfolio of kids products, services, experiences and knowledge that is wholesome, meaningful and highly effective. And not forget the space for parents to connect with other parents to buy/sell products their kids don’t use anymore and for friendly advice.

We hope you will find the breadth and depth of what we have to offer very useful in your parenting journey. If you cannot find something or have suggestions for improvement please drop us a line.
