Katha at Kitschdii

Had a fun session with little ones at the new shop Kitschdii.

The activity was a take on the store decor and looked so pretty.

Here are some more pics...

Was part of a  child's book  launch at Easy Library.

All of 8 years, the kid's parents have published the book. I was in conversation with the author and read some passages from the book.

Folk Art Tales at ThinkBox

A very interactive and intimate session this was at ThinkBox.

More pics here:

Pratham Champion at Home and at AV

Had great fun doing this session twice.
Once in English to a privileged set of kids and once in English with a smattering of  Tamil & Hindi to an equally eager but less exposed set of children

Cannot believe I have been going to AV for the last one year- it all began with a Pratham Champion session in 2012
