Little Satya lives by the Ganga in Banaras and longs to row her own boat on the river, just like her father. But he says she's not old enough or strong enough. The spirited girl can't wait... One day, she makes a little paper boat and that night, she dreams and drifts into a watery world. But what is her father doing there? As the story unfolds, the finely detailed illustrations and their colours heighten its magical quality and brilliantly capture the hustle and bustle of the Banaras river front.
