Get to Know Sailaja Joshi

By Anjali Joshi

From The Arpan Group

Like many young Asian American parents, Sailaja Joshi wanted to share stories about her Indian culture with her own children. Fond memories of Amar Chitra Kathas and stories told to her by her grandfather formed her expectations. As a new mom in 2013, Joshi went in search of books that would share her love for Indian heritage in an age-appropriate manner with her then newborn daughter. Discovering a lack of adequate options, Joshi founded Bharat Babies with a mission to “design and produce developmentally appropriate books that tell the stories of India’s heritage for children from birth through elementary school.”
