Author:Belinda Viegas

Publisher Goa 1556


The Golden Gate and other stories is a collection of three stories  where the author has used contemporary settings, to impart traditional values, The Golden Gate is a story of being kind and good. Follow Me a journey of life, where the child realizes that material comfort is not the only thing in life.  A Wondrous Carpet that came to life with each deed that brought Lydia joy because of her kindness.

The book is well written in simple language, and gives a lot of scope to read out to a younger child. Helping to create vivid pictures and imagination. I could see  a visual of a mother with her curled with her kids and reading to them.

What I liked best was the ideology is very subtly told. It fills in the void left by Chandamama.

I would definitely recommend it to mothers who read to their little kids. And early independent readers.

Maybe in the next print the publishers can consider making it totally graphic, I mean pictorial.

About the author: Belinda Viegas is a psychiatrist currently living and working in Goa. She is also the author of The Cry of the Kingfisher and Goa Maaza.
