A new home for Ajiri is a delightful story for 8-10-year olds that is based in Kachchh. A young chinkara fawn named Ajiri gets injured by a pack of dogs and is separated from her mother. She is nursed back to health by Shivam, a young boy, and his father, who knows how to treat injured animals. Later, she is cared for by Mitti, a young girl, and her pastoralist family. The story ends with some rather dramatic scenes of reunion between Ajiri and her mother, and Ajiri’s response to a poacher who fires on a herd of chinkara.
