Gift Box — Travels for Necessity
A special one-time box of books from our March 2022 Champaca Book Subscription box, in the theme of travel — a look at journeys of necessity, following Indians across history who have travelled away from home. For readers interested in hearing stories and parts of Indian history that we do not often hear.
Our Champaca Book Subscription is a curated box we send out across India. In Year Two, from July 2021 to June 2022, it contained books about travel from across the world.
You can learn more, and sign up for the current theme, here.
