Iswarya Subbiah shares her experience of a Telugu storytelling event she attended.
A breezy November morning had the kids at Andhra School lined up for a story telling event with Telugu translataor, P Santha Devi. The children of grades 6-10 were excited to get a respite from regular classes for an exciting event such as this. The school was celebrating it’s ‘Library Week’, and were more than happy to have amongst them Santha Devi Ma’am.
It is said that children have the purest of expressions, and anything they feel is reflected in their faces, so it was indeed a pleasure to see their faces lit up with joy. Santha Devi Ma’am read from stories from books she had translated for Pratham books. Though the session was in Telugu, it did not in any way take away from the fact that the children loved it. Their response and enthusiasm was heart warming. Their joyful faces were indeed a true reflection of the wonderful job ‘Bookaroo in the City’ is doing in spreading the joy of reading!
