DEHRADUN, 16 Nov: Day two of the Valley of Words Litfest saw a very stimulating discussion on The Mahabharat, Children’s Illustrated Classics between Charu Agarwal Dhandia, the author and Ratna Manucha, the moderator. The session was chaired by Col. Vivek Sharma. Brightly illustrated, this set of 10 books unravels the epic with dexterous simplicity, bringing to the child a glimpse of mythology without losing any of its essence,magic and power at the same time keeping in mind the sensibilities of the child. Charu is a first time writer and she said that it took her two years to complete the books. It targets children in the age group from 5 to 12. Each book is of 64 pages and beautifully written and illustrated.
