Behind the banter, Malala was at the show to speak about her new book about refugees titled 'We are Displaced', that are known to hit the shelves in India on January 9. 

Through her words, she made an attempt to amplify the voices of refugee girls around the world. 

In a press communique, publishers Weidenfeld & Nicolson and Hachette India said that Malala's travels through the refugee camps induced her to retrospect her own displacement.

"In We are Displaced, which is part memoir, part communal storytelling, Malala not only explores her own story of adjusting to a new life while longing for home, but she also shares the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her various journeys - girls who have lost their community, relatives and often the only world they've ever known," the communique added.
