This story is one that will grip your imagination as it deals with the ‘here’ and the ‘there’. ‘Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast,’ writes Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland. This book has food for the imagination with the message in the present tense par excellence. Happy Reading!

  3. 5 out of 5


    First of all Hats off to Jamuna Rangachari ji for producing such a larger than life effort to bring a very sensitive issue on seen through this book. I must say the plot was planned extremely well and the flow of the story was simply amazing. The characters selected and the role defined for them to spread the message of love, care and sacrifice was simply icing on the cake. Although the ultimate objective in the story was to save the planet “Zylake” which was under threat by a toxic cloud, but the events leading to it were even more significant. The time Grasus spent both on Zylake and Earth was full of inspirational events and messages. Valuing your resources including but not limited to water was one of the key take home messages. The lines which to me were the real essence of the whole book were “when the supreme power’s creation is combined with selfless and pure love, it becomes the Elixir of life which has the power to crush all evil completely”. Through child characters Jamuna Rangachari touched on the Importance of saving water by taking some simple but effective measures which really adds to the worth of this book. Extremely good book and Job well done by Jamuna Rangachari….!!!

    A charming tale with fantasy interwoven with reality, packed with adventure and intrigue…. young readers are bound to lap up the escapades of Garsus the alien kid with glee. An easy read written in simple language, Elixir for Zylake triggers the imagination of readers, at the same time compels them to introspect, ask questions and be proactive in addressing the single urgent need that the world faces today…. water conservation. The author conveys simple but universal heartwarming values in a non-threatening manner throughout the narrative. The aha moment for me in the book was when the elixir of life turns out to be not just what i imagined it to be…. read this exciting book and find out for yourselves what it could be!

    Author Jamuna Rangachari allows the imagination of little ones to soar as she weaves a tale around a planet called Zylake.

Then begins the journey to find an answer to the pertinent question through a holistic blend of adventure and life skills.

    Elixir for Zylake attempts to deliver strong messages for children, such as respect fellow human beings, value the
    planet’s resources, besides appreciating the efforts people are making to make human living conditions better. The dire need to save the planet and understand rainwater harvesting and other water related issues, become more effective with an element of adventure combined with simple language that children would be able to relate to.
