Gaia’s Own: Every Child’s Guide To Living In Harmony With Nature is Dharshana Bajaj’s first book. This is a creative non-fiction which, via an exchange of emails between a young girl and her itinerant grandfather, introduces various concepts on the theme of Nature and climate change. This book is for everyone, but primarily written for preteens and older children. It aims to share insights, both old and new, about the interdependence between mankind and the natural world. The Foreword has been written by Mr. Pushpanath Krishnamurthy, a climate change/environment activist.
Here is what some of our readers have to say about Gaia’s Own:
A model of the kind of optimistic and caring conversations we need more of!
~ Bill McKibben, American Environmentalist and Author
Dharshana has created a sensitive and timely book that not only introduces young people to the urgent environmental questions of the day, but also opens up the conversation in a way that allows them to make their own decisions and discoveries. Beautifully put together
~ Parvathi Nayar, Artist and Writer who works with water, space and urban memory
We appreciate it very much… It conveys the kind of spirit shared by many Greenpeace supporters.
~ Greenpeace International (Support Services, Francisca)
It’s a good book.
~ Maneka Sanjay Gandhi, Politician and Activist
This is an educational, thorough and entertaining read that will guide every child and teenager toward an existence of love and health. It will encourage them to get creative as well, to respond to the challenges they will be facing throughout their lives.
I highly recommend Gaia’s Own: Every Child’s Guide to Living in Harmony with Nature to educators and parents.

I shall carry it for my next walk in Madurai in September 2022 – talking about developing a non-violent economy – and soon again as I walk in my second spiritual home – Africa.
I would also like to add that this book is not for children alone, but it is an essential must-read for every adult – because it is our duty to protect this planet.
~ Pushpanath Krishnamurthy, Climate Justice and Anti-poverty Activist
