My take on this book:
Bright colors and funny illustrations make this such an eye catching book. While the book is written in Hindi the illustrations bring the story to life  allowing you to understand and enjoy the story whether you read Hindi or not. Mand doesn't like to work but Atal the elephant doesn't mind at all. so Chatur gets the bright idea to replace Mand with Atal but things don't work out the way Chatur thinks they will! Overall very well done illustrations that captures the eye and imagination and will certainly put a smile on your face as you learn  the story of Chatur and his donkey Mand.

About Sujata & Subhash Kommuru

Subhash and Sujata hail from India. They migrated to the United States along with their memories of childhood and youth. Now that they are parents, just like every immigrant they crave to introduce their child to the culture and values of their upbringing. Yet it is challenging to teach something while you are in the midst of adjusting to a different culture yourself. Subhash and Sujata both work in different disciplines and have different styles and backgrounds, but it is the upbringing of their son that brings them on the same page. That exact place where they meet is captured and reflected in their stories, where Subhash can express in words, and Sujata can illustrate them beautifully. Where he puts it in black and white, she adds color to it. You get the idea! These stories are their attempt to share a glimpse of their childhood days with their son. He is their inspiration to write short stories that have meaning to them and provide teaching in some shape or form.
