‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Anushka Ravishankar
Age Range: 6-8
Deep in the Sahyadri Mountains there is a village called Baddbaddpur where the ill-tempered Pandurang lives. No one has ever seen him smile as he is grumpy all the time. One day he has a strange experience when he coughs up a feather. Wanting to keep it a secret he tells his wife not to tell anyone else.
"A flock of white birds were flying right out
of her husband Pandurang's wide open mouth!"
However, in Baddbaddpur it is just impossible to keep a secret and of course the incident is relayed from person to person until the rumour becomes quite outlandish.
Another gem from Karadi Tales by award-winning nonsense verse writer Anushka Ravishankar who has woven this humorous story that gets larger and larger on every page, complimented by the rich, colourful illustrations of Indian illustrator, Kanyika Kini in inks and colour pencils.
