“The story tours you on the journey of parenting an adopted child, encapsulating the emotions and experience.” Bhagwat says.

Rajashree Bhagwat takes readers “Over the Rainbow” (published by Partridge India) to soberly address the emotions and risks involved in adoption and the need for flexibility in parenting style. The novel is based on the author’s own experiences and observations on the subjects of adoption, child-rearing and difficult behaviours in children, providing firm grounding to the narrative and the themes it conveys.

Pallavi and Sagar had it all: a lovely family, defined career path, and most of all, a sweet three-year-old, Sonal. Sonal’s demand for a sibling prompts them to adopt Arya. As the baby grows into a toddler, he displays unusual traits that seem to be just the way the kids are: naughty. Things will be better soon, the couple believes, but as he grows up, with his outgrown unusual behavior, the family encounters embarrassments. They try in every possible way to improve the situation, but it worsens day by day, making the bond between them all the more delicate. Unable to cope with the mounting stress, they send him to a residential school, firmly believing that strict discipline can mold him. They were wrong; rather, it changed their life forever and ever. As the consequences of these acts unfold, readers will see what prompted the couple to decide to go for adoption, the difficult situations they encountered and the changes that occurred in their lives. Ultimately, the audience will see if the family will accept Arya or not, if they can succeed in overcoming the difficulty or forgo the vows they made.

“The story tours you on the journey of parenting an adopted child, encapsulating the emotions and experience.” Bhagwat says. Moving and based on personal experiences, “Over the Rainbow” is a heartfelt and compelling depiction of the emotions felt by adoptive parents and the children they take in, the uncertainties of adoption, the potential suffering the family can experience, as well as the consequences of not being accepted by society.
