Just like in this story, Poran has had a long and winding journey with UPL, finally seeing the light of day. The story first came to us as a manuscript from Sharada Kolluru. It has since been modified to its current form with the help of Saiq'a Chowdhury's poetic experimentation and masterful edits by renowned poet Kaiser Haq. The illustrations by Sabyasachi Mistry have added a unique dimension to its presentation.
This was a true collaboration between the publisher's team and the creators of Poran the Postman; we have gone through many highs and lows together in the process. Poran has finally reached its destination in the hands of the children that we conceived it for. It has been a long wait for everyone, and we hope that Poran will now continue to entertain and inspire generations of young readers to come.
