The Indo-Gangetic Plain is a vast stretch of land with great rivers such as the Ganges and Yamuna flowing through it. Every turn of its course is imbued with history, culture, festivals and legends. Here are some of India's most ancient cities such as Benaras, Allahabad, Lucknow, Patna and Bodh Gaya - each with their own tales to tell! This is also the part of India where great figures such as the Buddha, Emperor Ashoka, Tulsidas, Kabir and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, left their mark on prosterity. Childhood memories remain vivid. I spent my early life in Lucknow, where my father was posted. The stories told by my parents while I was growing up, about this colourful cityof nawabs, has remained in my mind and I have woven them into the fabric of Champa's story. Later in life, I got involved in Vipassana - a particular technique of meditation. It is said that this was the form of meditation that the Buddha himself practiced. I had the good fortune to travel to the 'land of the Buddha', which extends over Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and a part of Nepal, with my meditation group. It was a greatly enriching experience. I have used all these places, through Champa's travels, to tell the tale of the Buddha and other stories of this region, for my young readers.
