Under The Bakul tree

When Ashim, the bright, cheerful class topper and the 'jewel' of Mahendra master, suddenly drops out of school, everyone is surprised. His classmate and academic rival, Nirmal, is deeply troubled by Ashim's behaviour and decides to investigate. As Nirmal discovers more about Ashim's circumstances, a friendship as pure as the bakul flower blooms that stands its ground against the harsh realities of growing up in rural Assam. A heartwarming coming-of-age tale, the book celebrates friendship, hope and determination as it unravels the devastating effects of poverty and of an education system that has failed the ones who need it the most- the misfits and outcasts.
