Reena & Mital met over 20 years ago and their friendship began through their love of the popular Indian folk dance, Garba (and being the best on the dance-floor woo!).

 

Since then, their lives coincidentally have been on similar paths. After becoming first-time Moms, they decided to write a book for their babies about the Gods & Goddesses they had learned about in many bedtime stories with their own grandmothers. This book was the beginning of their brand- Desi Babies. 

Desi Babies was co-founded by Mital Telhan (left) and Reena Puri (right)

As parents, we continue to look for cool and modern ways to teach our children about culture and the importance of God. Living in a Western world, it is challenging to incorporate our South Asian heritage in a way that is meaningful to children. At Desi Babies, we strive to create fun and vibrant products which will stimulate the growth and creativity of the modern desi baby!
