The story is about a little girl Deepa who lives close to Corbett National Park and has gone on a holiday to Australia to meet her grandparents. It plays on the cultural contrasts and is also about the connection between dad and daughter.
This story has been mainly written in-flight when commuting between San Francisco and Chicago, which Puneet frequently does for work.
What started off as a personal project has grown ambition to support education of underprivileged kids. Every bit of the profit from the sales of the book will go to a school named Mercy of God in a place called Dehradun in India. The school is run by a young couple who are struggling to make ends meet, and they have sacrificed their live toward the service of the poor.
