Ajay and the Jaipur Moon

Varshah Shah

(Chicken House)

The Mumbai Sun might be printing every morning from the railway station, but Saif has trouble. It seems the printing press upon which he prepares Ajay’s news is time consuming, elderly and on its last legs. However, how can any of Ajay’s team hope to finance a new press? Then again, isn’t this industry what unites them and gives them purpose in each of their individual ways?
Could it be the discovery of a meteorite fallen in Jaipur could give the team the opportunity they need so much? Or might it lead into a story of the century, such as Ajay’s always dreamed? After all, it seems that Mrs Surya, director of the WECU space programme understands Ajay’s struggles and seeks to support each of the team. Then again, how is she related to the Man in the Grey Suit? Furthermore, who is behind the potential sabotage of India’s first space mission? Ajay’s determined to uncover the truth, but in so doing might unravel a plot that goes right to the top!
After Ajay and the Mumbai Sun, Bookwagon was delighted to return to the determined Mumbai railway kids. It seems their industry and ambition break out from the page. Thereafter, Varsha Shah offers a background history to her characters, from British colonialism to Jaipur, and then the space race too! Bookwagon recommends Ajay and the Jaipur Moon to our readers.
