Ammu’s Bottle Boat

In verse that lightly follows the journey of Ammu’s bottle boat, award-winning writer Niveditha Subramaniam evokes the casual carelessness with which we destroy the natural world. Aindri C’s illustrations underline that horror with a clever spin on a traditional art form. The fish and sea creatures used as printing plates in the Japanese art of ‘Gyotaku’ are replaced here with plastic objects like bottle caps and bubble wrap – and the displacement of nature with modern-day trash is complete.
