Sudha Murty is a known household name. She is a Philanthropist , the first female engineer and a believer in educating the poor.
Gopi diaries are three books in all. They are about Sudha Murthy’s dog. She loves her dog so much that she has written about him.
The first book is called coming home.It is about Gopi going to a new. It tells us how he adopts in his new home.
Gopi is a loveable dog. After reading this book it seems that the dog has the same emotions as a human. Like it was decided to bring another dog home. Gopi gets angry. This can be compared to an older sibling getting angry when a younger sibling comes home.
There are photos of the dog which are cute. There are funny scenes like the time gopi bangs into a mirror and thinks it is another dog.
The cover is attractive and so is the story. Gopi stays with Ajji and Appa. Gopi’s birthday is also celebrated.
The second book is called Finding Love.
In this book, gopi is grown up from the small puppy that he was in the first book. In this, the story is after one year.
