The Why Why girls and boys
In 2003, to promote the Read India movement, Pratham Books released Mahasweta Devi’s book The Why Why Girl?
The bright and bold illustrations were by Kanyika kini. The book, published by Tulika Books, was translated into
Kannada by Girish Karnad with the title Yake Yake Hudugi. The launch coincided
with the International Literacy Day celebrations.
And now, since Pratham Books has already started its International Literacy Day festivities by launching the Tentastic Project, we were happy to see this post via our friends at Hippocampus. Read Kanyika’s interview here.
