Nitya Satyani is a teacher by qualification, a writer by passion and a mother by profession! Born and brought up in Mumbai, she has worked as a playschool teacher and freelance writer, contributing to several leading newspapers and magazines. After the birth of her son, she discovered her true calling ? being a mother. Nitya, now a mother of two, spends her time marvelling at the innocence, growth and vulnerability of childhood. And in-between digging in the sandpit and scouting the park for insects, she disappears into every child's fantasy world and writes beguiling stories for and about little peopleƒ and of course about the many joys of being a mother! This expanded, colour edition of Spinning Top, is published by public demand.
