About the book

Can self-acceptance be learnt?
Let’s peep within with Obi, the dot, and look at where acceptance begins.

Kyo and Obi, a fable about friendship and discovering the joy of self-acceptance.

An unusual friendship develops between a dog and a dot (a speck of dust)–man’s best friend and an ignored particle of matter. Despite being together all the time, they cannot be similar. Their dissimilarities are rather evident. Can their friendship sustain even with dissimilarities? Maybe, if there is patience, understanding and acceptance. Can acceptance be learnt? The dot tells us that it can. Let’s peep within, with the dot and look at where acceptance begins. 

Told in a book that is made in India, from 100% recycled, sun-dried cotton paper, hand stitched by people with disabilities, the story is beautifully illustrated in line art and coloured with soy inks in two colours. The book is a gift to yourself and to others – read it, share it, pass it on, there’s only going to be a small number in print.
