"Across the Line" is a heart-warming book which is a story of struggle, hope and cricket; across timelines and divided by borders. A good message on how what unites us is bigger than what divides us.

"I have campaigned for the tiger across the world, and I am always asked - what can we do to help save tigers? The answer to that lies in Nayanika's book - as Tara and Satya team up to save the lives of a tigress and her cubs. As far as I am concerned, this book should be a part of school reading, so that there is an engagement with conservation at a younger age. I believe that this is a story for all to read."

"PARTITION AND BEYOND: Continuing and unrelenting, the series of events leading to the Partition and beyond, is still unfolding, haunting our imagination with its taste of ash and smoke. From making paper boats to lost homes with mango trees, the young people in this finely crafted story are like friends, but their lives are framed by a dark line drawn by an Englishman in a hurry to wash his hands of everything. Such lines cannot be undone by wishing them away and yet this book lights a candle of hope and peace."

"Nayanika takes us through two different timelines and unveils the entrancing stories of two people across the border. This story is a tribute to all the unsung heroes who have fought silent battles even after the Partition."

"I love the voices in this book. They are so familiar- the wry comment-the humour-the unspoken words. The grief. The resilience. I love how the stories are narrated- against a bloodied and scarred background- the everyday conversations are so beautifully written. A much needed book at a time where hatred of the “other” has become endemic in many societies- where leaders talk about walls and not about communities. ."
