'Raising Rihaan' is a graphic novel by Annushka Hardikar that acts as a Millennial parenting guide for those learning to navigate through the common challenges, questions and expectations associated with starting and raising a family.
Addressing everything from raising kids as digital natives in a tech-obsessed society to helicopter parenting and the importance of not overwhelming kids with too much academic pressure, the novel teaches its lessons through 20 comic strips. The comic strips follow a 12-year-old boy and his family, taking readers on an informative journey through engaging illustrations.
Raising Rihaan was first introduced at the Pune International Literary Festival 2018 and speaks to consumers' growing desire for interactive Millennial parenting tools that go beyond instructional texts to spark discussion.
