Neerja Kalia

Neerja is a fauji wife who has spent more than three decades of her life living the authentic Indian army experience. From posting to posting, from peace time to action, from the borders of Arunachal to the cantonments of Roorkee, from waist-deep snow to snake infested deserts; from tents to barracks to bungalows she has packed up two kids at the drop of a hat to take on a new adventure with her husband and his other family – the battalion. Her rich, real life experiences as an army wife bring a vivid genuineness to this collection of short stories. The book also features three stories penned by her husband, Naren. 


The Adventures of Nonie is the first children’s book series published by Nessa K. She has worked in the field of children’s education for several decades and has always nurtured her dream of one day creating and weaving stories for children that are vivid, dramatic and magical. Her stories aim to be particularly appealing to children growing up in cities, who have little exposure to nature and animals.
