"There were no additions made and nor was there a lot of editing. It was published as my father meant it to be read. In that respect we were very lucky with Niyogi Books," says the late author's daughter Diwo Lhamo Pemba who's a poet herself.

"The story is about friendship that two boys share that transcends all cultural influences such as race, religion and mindset. Instead they are both driven by very simple every day values that ordinary people live by. There is the happiness that friends experience as they share things—things boys do together such as hunting, riding, playing cop and bandit, peer dominance, etc," she added.
