Jyotsna Dilip Professionally an engineer, I swapped my decade-long career to be a stay at home mum to two kids. Parenting has made me slow down, broaden my view, helping me see and understand life and its experiences through my children's' eyes. An artist, nature lover, waste recycler and avid reader, I wear many hats - I run a book club for children (Seed A Read), a children's bookstore (The Rabbit Hole), write educational content for children and dabble in art & craft activities. I am passionate about design, children's education and literature and am a picture book enthusiast. I love to see the world and believe that life is an exploration.
I run a children's travelling bookstore - The Rabbit Hole - based in Bangalore. I curate books, toys and games that add value to a child's life. I am immensely passionate about kid lit and promote the best books, indie books and some lesser known but very deserving books. I head the Bangalore operations of KidEngage and bring my core strengths of leadership, customer engagement and commitment to the task at hand.

nikdudhal Passionate about education and child psychology, I have been facilitating and learning with children in various alternative environments. I have also been sharing my learnings with fellow colleagues and parents through several workshops. My areas of interest range from adolescent and developmental psychology; photography and science; music and art.
I am a nonconformist who seeks reason in every practice and philosophy I come across. And I strongly believe that every child is born with the best of possibilities and that we as the adults around are responsible for nurturing and bringing it out. That a child is as much a product of the "nurture" as much as her "nature".
